I am single and have been for 18 years now, I did not date while my daughter was growing up, mostly because I had just started with fibro and could only cope with my daughter and myself for a long time and also because if I wanted to date it would be difficult for a non fibro person to understand my illness and be sympathetic or understanding when I was not even sure about it myself.
This is the thing I have noticed: Whenever I meet anyone new and end up dating, then kissing, and eventually moving on to sex if all goes well I am in agony for about 2 or 3 weeks. I think my body reacts to the virus's in his body and I end up being all inflammation everywhere and cotton wool headed, and pain through the roof and all I can do is wait for it to settle down, till my body adjusts again. I have found I also react in, usually but not always a lessening of the above symptoms, if I eat out or get moved into a new office with new people who all carry their own virus's.
It is so frustrating! I also get tendonitis when I move to a new work station for the first few weeks lol.
Does anyone else have any of this stuff?
