I would just appreciate any advice on how you deal with life with fibro. I was diagnosed about 1 1/2 years ago and kept thinking it would get better but,instead it's gotten worse. I tried all the natural/alternative stuff at first but, now I'm on all kinds of meds just to get thru the day and to sleep. I hate it. I've had to cut my work hours so much that we barely get by. And as most of you are, always in pain. I'm sorry to be so depressing but, I guess that's how I'm feeling right now. I read many books on trying to stay positive and finding the good instead of bad, and they do help but.... Well, I guess I'd just like to know how you find happiness with the disease. Is it really possible? Or do I just accept being miserable my whole life and hurting everyone that loves me. Any helpful advice would be very appreciated. Thanks! -Kris

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...
