Fibromyalgia is a perfect day to day reason to live. If you are waking up and able to move, make the most of it. If you wake up and are unable to move, then don’t. Get some rest, read a book and watch a film. Maybe it’s not what you want, but that’s what you must do for the day. It’s a new day tomorrow and may well be different from yesterday. Thank you for having you tomorrow, because many people are not. I know when you’re in constant agony, it’s hard to feel that way, but there’s always something positive to do every day.
Few terms to explain how horrible it is, it’s a living hell, it makes you feel like I don’t have any more time. But we’ve collected only a few of the explanation of pain that our members tell us below.
Here’s what they share with us:
