With Fibro, there are good days & bad days. When you have a good day, don't overdue it or you will pay for it. I find esp the 2nd day after working hard it hits me bad with pain. If there is an activity I plan to attend, I try to "bank" energy for several days b4, then plan down time several days after. When you are tired, sleep. Don't let people make you feel guilty for being "lazy". They do not understand! Fibro will not cripple you (although there may be days u feel like it) & it will not shorten life span. Do things that are nice for yourself everyday! Little things that don't have to cost money. Try to stay relaxed, less stress, upbeat if you can (it is tough!) Knowledge is power, research as much as you can. Many try to alter their diet to eliminate processed foods, pop, tomatoes, citrus, sugar,etc & say that it helps. We understand what you are going thru. I hope you have better days & learn to adjust to live with this terrible disorder/condition/illness. Sorry for your pain, no fun to live that way... Just know there are people who care & do understand! Hugs...Joni

Hi Lillian: The answer to your question is most difficult. Fibromyalgia will stay with you but it is up to you how you handle it. Stay positive, get on the right combination of drugs and talk to a friend or family member or even a psychiatrist. It is a very frustrating condition for all concerned but you can still live with it once you understand it and the people around you understand and most importantly how your doctors understand it.

New to this forum. Jean What is the right combination of drugs? Is there anything that takes the pain away. I have been on Tylenol 3 and ibuprofen for the last two years and they do not help.
