Re: Scared of the unknown..
welcome, welcome. take a deep breath. you can do this. your life is always an unknown. each day we do not know what to expect, even if we are healthy.
having fibro is not so bad. at first it is scary, then it makes you angry, then your go thru mourning the loss of your old you, then last of all is acceptance and adapting. you will still have your life. you just have to alter how you do things and how often.
for myself it is a blessing. i learned to slow down and take each day as it comes. i learned to set healthy boundaries and keep them. that took a few years of therapy. giggle.
physical therapy, diet, exercise, massage, swimming, hot tubbing, good water to drink plenty of, attitude and choice. those are my tools for coping with the pain. never found a pill or magic cure. looked for a few years. actually i ran rabid seeking a cure. wasted alot of precious energy.
know that you are not alone. many of us are veterans to this little fibro brat. we all find our own way to live our lives as fully as we can. you will too. have faith in your ability to adapt and evolve.
