my symptoms are as many of us they are way to many to list most of the time i feel like i moan a lot and feel sorry for my hubby that i end up saying iv had a really good day today . when in truth i never have a good day i think it must be awfull having a wife who is always in pain and saying this or that hurts any of the other suffers have this ? (or am i just feeling sorry for myself today?)

thanx for that im glad im not the only one who feels like this have a good night :)x


I'm lucky enough not to have fibro too badly but I get fed up of aches and pains so I've no idea how you ladies cope with it.

I'm sure if you say you've had a really good day, your husband's must be able to tell that you haven't really? They probably know by now how you really feel.

I think we do feel guilty as wives and mothers, all of us, not just us with fibro. It's what we do isn't it :) I'm sure they don't think it's awful having a wife who is always in pain, they probably feel really sorry for you and maybe bad cos they can't help?

Please don't feel guilty, you have nothing to feel guilty about. You can't help having this 'thing'.

Not much help I know but it makes me sad to read these posts, you really can't help being in pain. xxx
