I know this is like asking how long is a piece of string, ha ha, but I'm trying to be hopeful! So, tell me, what's the shortest flare up you've ever had. Started on Saturday so I'm hoping I can rest my way out of it today to get to work on Tuesday...... Anyone got any clever techniques to stop a flare up? Or once is starts am I stuck with it til it burns itself out? I was so well over the Christmas holidays. Always get a bit complacent then and think maybe it's gone away! Beeping awful illness!

Morning Apple4me, I haven't see you on here before, .if you are new "welcome" ...I think it largely depends on each individual, mine seem to be getting longer each time, mind you I have had it for over 50yrs so maybe I deserve it to get longer LOL , I think maybe if you give into it and rest it could be shorter, but I never was the best for taking my own advice, hope u feel better soon, just rest and look forward to some time off work, ....sending you a handful of sunshine and a healing hug....Dee x
I just wanted to tell you that since joining this site, (diagnosed on 27.12.13) I look forward to reading anything you have written!! Always positive and cheery, with good advise for everyone!! Thank you.. X
The thank you!! Was for cookie72!...xx
Thank you so much ninjanna, it's nice to know that you are helping someone else isn't it, how are you today, you should listen to your mum, mum's are always right, lol, seriously tho time and sleep are good healers, ... You take care, this is a bummer desease and all we can do is rest and pace ourselves and learn to live with it I guess....sending you a hug and a handful of sunshine ....Dee xx
Hi Dee. I have been on here for a while but I only just put my mugshot up, so maybe that's why you don't recognise me! Feeling cheerful just because I do have the chance to rest at home today. Will do a bit of tidying up but mostly lying in bed, reading or watching BBC iplayer (Sherlock Homes is on!!!! Whoopeedoo!). I think I'll be OK for work tomorrow, though I will ask my hubby to drop me off instead of my usual cycle to work. By the way I agree with ninjananna below. You are always wonderfully positive. Sometimes fibro folk are (perhaps understandably) negative. I'm not that keen on fibro groups for that reason. It is good to hear a positive voice. I guess that's how you've survived 50 years with this!
