I have Severe Fibromyalgia that causes me constant pain and fatigue. I have a very supportive husband and 3 wonderful boys. I have had fibro at least 20 years but was diagnosed in 2005. It came on gradually and at first I thought it was due to getting older. As it progressed I realized that there was something medically wrong with me. It was so severe in 2007 that I had to quit my career to stay home and take care of myself. I spent 2 years in bed with terrible pain and very fatigued. Now I am able to take care of myself, do light housework, get out of the house a little, and I am trying to live life to the fullest.
