Has any of you found that as you go along thru the years with this darn stuff, it starts to lessen in severity and the amount of flares you have? It is starting to seem like mine is not happening as often as it used to and it doesn't seem to hurt as badly as it used to. I remember when I was first dxed, I absolutely thought I was going to die and was to some degree afraid I WOULDN'T. I had to have help, on a daily basis to get dressed and basically every area in my life I needed assistance with. This would go on for months and months. Now, 11-12 years later, yes I still have flares...occasionally. The last major one I had has been months ago and lasted 4 months. But, other than that, I have the daily pain on a scale of 1-10, is about a 5-6. But, on the other hand, I am getting new symptoms, now and then. Stuff I have heard others talk about having, but in all these years, have never had myself. I am so thankful for the decrease in severity and generally just with the way it is now, compared to how it used to be. And I am soooo hoping and praying my precious daughter gets to this point soon, as well as all of you that are suffering so terribly with this crap. I mean,it does get bad, If I push myself too hard, but I have learned how to pace myself these days. I wonder, is this what they meant by,back when I was first dxed, I would never be cured of it, but I would learn how to manage it? So, anyhow I am curious if any of you have reached this same point in your FM journey? I would like to be able to tell my daughter that there is hope of being able to regain your life. That I am not just an exception to the rules of Fibro. Don't get me wrong, I am not UNHAPPY with the way my FM has gone. I am SO very thankful to God for the manageability of my FM. I just am hoping that future sufferers can look forward to reaching this point,also. Hugs to you all!
