I am new to the site but I wanted to thank so many of you for being friends. I wanted to see if anyone might have some advise on something that I struggle with a lot. I have been in the middle of a real bad FM flare up lately, within the last 3 weeks or so it has been the worst. My wife does more to try to take care of me than I could even hope for. But She was diagnosed with MS several years ago. What I struggle with are the days when I am hurting so bad that I don't even want to move. The FM in the evenings for me is the worst part of the day. Sometimes all I can do is sit here and cry. The problem is when I am feeling like this, I tend to get selfish. I fail to see that she is also hurting and needs my help with the family. it has been a rough time for her lately as well. How do I get past my selfishness? How do I push through to be more of a help? Any thoughts, experiences, or support would be great appreciated, I can't keep feeling like I am letting my family down. Sorry for the length, but thank you

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
