I can still work most days without too much problems, but sometimes I just get really sick, I work outside and sometimes that means working in 110 degree weather with humidity, I seem to really bad on humid days, and we do alot of pick ups which include sofa's, glass table tops, marble tops, tables, refrigerators etc. everything that is in a person's home and some of it is heavy as hell. We pick up at mansions and that is where the really heavy stuff is. But some day's I can do it, but then I have times where my muscles just knot up and don't want to work, they get really painful and stop working for me and it can be so painful it can cause me to scream. Muscle problems aren't no fun, I don't mind the other stuff so much but the muscle problems are the worst. Also have bouts of great fatigue, so I work and on my day's off I am on the couch trying to get my energy back up. It limit's a person's life, so they have me on anti depressants also. But that is all the dr's seem to be able to do until I collapse at work, california is not to keen on diseases especially this one. So they can't make accomadations for my line of work. I have been thinking of everything I can tell my boss, but the only thing I can tell like I always have is I have good days and I have bad days, so you can see there frustration also. I wish I had an answer but I don't, this is my life right now. They gave me 3 months disability to get my body back in shape, I guess it wasn't long enough. anyways there is no length of time which one recovers from what I have gotten from everyone, everyone is different in there stories. That is what makes this disease such a pain in the butt, it's hard to evaluate. I am frustrated which makes me sicker and I don't know what to do, but just one day at a time. I pray for those of us who have this disease everyday and hope something better comes available soon. But the fda process is so slow. Take care, I am just going to do my best.

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...
