Hi, my name is Deidra and I'm new to this app. I have had Fibro symptoms since 2003, but was not diagnosed until 2008. Many of you can relate, since it takes so long to figure this out after you have to be poked and tested until they have exhausted all other conditions. I didn't want to believe it at first, because there is no cure all for this, so I was diagnosed by three different doctors before the reality sunk in. I have, over the years, have found many different things to manage the pain, diet and exercise, but then I moved and moved again, and now I live in a place where the weather never seems to calm enough for me to get on top of it, and the fatigue takes over. I have never seemed to be able to overcome the fatigue. I have never, since I've had this, had to motivate and push myself so hard just to move everyday to take my kids to school and take a stupid shower. I just want a shower without feeling like that is the only thing I will accomplish in the day. Thank you for letting me rant, I know many of you have gone, and are going through this.
