I'm not a young person but if you haven't already, please have your parents talk to your School Counselor about a 504 plan. You can receive accommodations allowing for rest breaks, extended time, refuced assignements, or many others to help reduce the stresses at schools. Having a 504 also sets a precedent for accommodations in college or tech school after HS. If you have questions about 504 plans, I'm happy to chat with you.

Hey! I'm 25, and have dealt with fibromyalgia since I was around 15. It's good you got a diagnosis so quickly - I was only diagnosed this year. My mum also has it, and swears by exercise. Physiotherapy can really help, as they can set you up with a guide on what kind of exercises are good for you.
Best advice I can give is don't overdo it. Build up slowly, and educate yourself really well on how fibro affects your body, and what therapies are known to be effective.
