    Hi Debbie

    Oh NO.....poor you.....Fibro is NOT fair and comes and goes and all suffer in many different ways.  Staying positive and trying NOT to think too much about it as this will only cause further stress to you and your pains......

    You should rant as much as you want......this forum is for us to let off steam and help support one another.

    Don't feel disheartened as with positive attitude we can all overcome Fibro even if it is for a short period.  Have you tried CBT as this is useful to help with your mind and controlling the pains we feel mentally with a positive attitude.  I have tried herbal remedies which have helped me over the past few months after 20 yrs of suffering.  You can message me privately if you need to know more about this treatment.

    We are all here for you.....sending you BIG gentle hugs from ME to YOU for a POSITIVE day ahead..... wink xx

    Hi Debbie

    Bee is right, take one day at a time, and try and be positive, it's very difficult and when I have a bad time with my fibro I always end up thinking things will never get any better, but they usually do, even if it takes a while.

    Take care, and rant any time, it does us good smile

    Gentle hugs
