I was diagnosed with Fibro just a few short days ago and since then I have been in my own little world. I have had a life time of illness stemming back to kindergarden when I was diagnosed with Mono, then when I was a freshman in high school I was again diagnosed with Mono (very rare to get this twice) then when I was a junior I was diagnosed with bacterial spinal meningitis. Years went by with various problems health wise. I had to have my gall bladder out at age 25. Was diagnosed with a psuedo-tumor cerebri at 27 where I underwent over 50 spinal tap's to check my level of fluid, also was on medication. I am still being followed to this day by a Neuro Opthamoligist. Then at age 32 I was diagnosed with uterine cancer where I had to undergo a full hysterectomy. Fell last Christmas Day and broke my right ankle had to have surgery yes on Christmas Day where they placed a 10 inch plate and 8 screws in my ankle. I also badly sprained my left ankle at the same time. They think this fall made this Fibro blow up. I have had all the symptoms since I was a kid. Now what do I do to go on with my life being in pain? I don't want another issue in my life. I didn't ask for all this to happen to me and I wonder why me? AGAIN This is just unreal. Who does this happen to? I am so frustrated. I don't know how much more I can be handed. I am a strong person but it is starting to take it's toll on me. It's hard to be happy when inside you are so mad and frustrated. I am glad I found this site and look forward to reading into what I can do to make myself feel better. The med's I was given make me very dizzy and kinda like a drunken feeling. Hard to explain. I am still in pain... it has only been about 4 days I have been taking it so hoping it will kick in once it is in my system. Thank you so much.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
