I've been on the site for 6 months, shortly after being diagnosed with Fibro. The roller coaster that has occurred in that time has been horrendous. I know now I'm not alone in coping with this pain, but still finding it difficult to cope at times. I've always been active, running around between here and there and making up parts in the time spare. I've been having regular CBT sessions which have helped immensely and now just waiting for appointment for pain management as my GP won't give me a strong painkiller as they are addictive??! I had acupuncture and reflexology yesterday, a birthday gift, which I found very helpful for the lower back pain that never normally eases past 7 (1 being good, 10 I can't walk) . Still taking each day as they come, as pain and mood vary. My husband is super supportive and don't think I could have endured all this without him. I know all are stories are different but the pain remains the same... Excruciating at times, just nagging at times... But essentially always there. Our strongest days are our most painful. Gentle hugs to all and have a peaceful weekend
