    Fibro and Falling apart
    Frustratedintennessee posted:
    My Fibro started bothering me early 2009 I was diagnosed in 2010. It seems like every since the Fibro started I started falling apart!! Does anyone else feel that way?
    kiski responded:
    YES. very much. i am thinking that just being upset with the realization of being in pain all the time and people not understanding (those that dont have it) makes the pain worse.

    I totally know what you mean, its just so depressing that at my age I have this to look forward to, for the rest of my life. I cant get that out of my head sometimes, when Im feeling low. Other times, I feel like a bump on a log for just laying around, becuase I hurt so bad, I dont wanna move. But if I get up and move, it does help, Im so wishy washy, and airheaded half the time, everyone thinks Im I cant help it. Even with medication for depression, and pain, im still down. I do have good days, but not often. I really dont know how people that live up north do it. I live in Fl, and I really dont have to deal with the cold that much, but its the rainy weather change, barameter change, I think it is.
    But I know exactly how you feel
