    I am 78 yrs old, and have suffered with fibromyalgia for about 35 years. Sometimes I can forget about it, but walking is a nightmare – I hurt so much and although I will plan a trip to town, by the time I get there and have found 1 shop, every time I have to come home and sit down. Am so frustrated by this nightmare situation – my son lives in Lanzarote and begs me to go over. It was ok when my husband was around – unfortunately he died last year. He was my carer, so now I’m very much on my own. Today is a feeling sorry for myself day, so I apologise for the whiny tone of this writing!

    I often rock forwards and backwards as no pain killers ever work, I also lightly tap myself where it hurts, about 50% of the time it helps, heat pads are from heaven.

    I was very happy to read this article. I often try to explain how fibromyalgia affects me to my family and friends, but I can’t seem to find the right words. They believe that if I eat right, exercise and get sleep (yeah, right), that all of my issues will get better and go away. But. that is so far from the truth. I am in a constant struggle to maintain my mind and to fight the pain so that I can just get through another day. I do find that on my “good” days, I feel as if I can do just about anything, but I pay for over the next few days or even a week. Nevertheless, I still continue to push forward to find my own path of healing and happiness. I will not allow fibro to take my life away.
