Learning to Live with Fibromyalgia

A Fibromyalgia diagnosis changes everything, but not all of those changes have to bad.  It’s hard to adjust to not being able to always do the things you’re used to doing, like going out with friends, cleaning, cooking and taking a shower without feeling like you’ve just ran a marathon.  It’s easy to let yourself get depressed, but a pity party only makes things worse.  So what do you do?  Suck it up buttercup.  This is your life now so it’s time to embrace it and make it work for you.
The first thing to do is make sure you’re as healthy as possible, because other illnesses and afflictions will have a negative impact on Fibromyalgia and make you feel way worse. You already feel bad enough so there’s no need to add to it.  Taking care of yourself and exercising is a way to have some sort of control over this evil illness.  That in itself will make you feel a little better.
