    Hi everyone, just feeling a little down so I thought if I spilled my guts I'd feel better. I'm 43...had fibro for about 20 years...always comes and goes...thank god...well..this time I've been in a flare for about 3 weeks. I work full time..hairdresser...not sure how I do it but I do..I have no choice. I've been dating my boyfriend for about 2 years. He lives 1/2 hour away..has 3 kids..9..10..and 17. I am ALWAYS the one to drive there and see him..stay on weekends...etc. It takes alot out of me but I do it because I love him. Well....the past 2 weeks I haven't been able to do anything except go to work and crawl in the door and get in my jammies and lay down...its gotten me depressed...had a couple anxiety attacts...etc...it's been the pits. Well...tonite he said we're done...he thinks I'm seeing someone else because I haven't been there...I've tried to explain that I have been sick and everything....how selfish is that??? I'm always there for him if he's sick or whatever. I guess its for the best...the stress of dealing with him every day on the phone telling him why I can't go there wasn't helping matters. For those of you out there that have spouses that really UNDERSTAND...you are very lucky. Thanks for listening.

    I am so sorry to hear you are having such a difficult time. I agree with the other post. He was so selfish and now you are FREE. I know it does not feel good now but it will. Take really good care of yourself and then go out and have some FUN FUN FUN. I bet after a very little while you will say I feel so much better without the stress of such a guy! I will be thinking of you and checking back soon. Suzanne
