    I've been in a flare for a little over 15 months & while I try to be upbeat this is ridiculous!! I really feel like I'm losing it this time not to mention all the stress going on in my life right now that I can't seem to get control of. My grown son who is living with me is Bi-Polar & seperated from his wife. Also a friend of his was staying here w/her 4 kids added to the stress along with her estranged husband causing problems. Plus my son gets his 3 kids every other week so that's another stressor. Then last Thursday night my son's friend had a seizure here @ my house and was released from the hospital & came here. All of them are very messy & won't even try to help keep things cleaned up & I'm Obcessive about cleanness plus my son's wife is playing head games with him and causing him to want to kill himself. Needless to say my flare is exaserbated with even more pain as if I didn't already have enough. Then a little while ago, I came back from an appt. my son picked me up & that friend that had had the seizures was here watching his 2 daughters had another seizure while we were trying to get back here with 3 kids under the age of 5 here with her. This is all too much & I've tried telling everyone this is too much stress but NO-ONE seems to be listening!! I just want to scream & run away. I just can't take anymore of this. I'm so sorry to be laying all of this out like this but I just don't know what else to do or where else to go. Thanks for letting me vent. Diane

    have things calmed down for you?

    It sounds to me you need some time to yourself. Do you have some place to go? You should not be responsible for all those people and their stress and also have your fibro to manage. I hope you find a restful place soon. Best of luck and good wishes.
