That is how I look at the problem a lot if us have in being that we have more than one ailment going on at any given time. I was asking myself this just two days ago 'Would I cope better if I ONLY had FMS?' And the answer is yes, I probably would cope better. But right now I think I am in about my 10th week of a fibro flare, about 7-8 weeks into a COPD flare, which exacerbated the early hours of Xmas morning and resulted in me siting in the bathroom for an hour running hot water and filling the room up with steam. And now although I have eaten very little something has irritated the stomach and duodenal ulcers as well as forcing the Hiatus hernia up into my gullet, extremely painful right now. So now when something happens with my FMS I say to hubby 'Well I never, Fibro has another fancy woman around' and he just laughs. But I have been very ill since 4.30am Xmas morning(hence me not being here much to support everyone) and have had to go one, which is what we do, we carry on regardless. We hear all the time people saying slowdown, take it easy, relax a while, but to be honest I do not think we are made that way. So I am herenow bolstering up the side lol and wishing you all well xxxxxx(Oh and my daughter got another UTI for Xmas, I should have offered to wrap it up eh)moan over
