Agree about the weather - it's unspeakable!

Sorry you're feeling so bad. Most of us agree that getting adequate pain control is the most important thing with fibro. If you are comfortable and can get some rest, the depression will usually lift.

Maybe you could visit your GP with a written list of your main probs, and get a review. Tell her that you need some decent pain relief and then take it from there.

Don't worry about the BBQ - let others do the work - it won't hurt them, but if you think there will be a 'situation', then cancel it. If it's not going to be fun for you, then why bother? If you're doing it for the enjoyment of others, then they must all muck in and help with the work - why should you do it all?

Feel free to come here and let off steam any time - we all do it! Join in with a few laughs, too, when you can - we find it cheers us up no end!
