Been having a long, painful flare up over the summer, and hoping Fall will kick it to the curb! I'm really getting irritated over not being able to sleep well, hurting, swelling up overnight for no reason, and generally feeling blah all the time. How has everyone else been faring lately? Anyone having a nasty flare or particularly odd symptoms? Let us know how you are!
Personally, I've been dealing with the first summer vacation as a divorced parent. My son spent most of the summer with his father out of state, leaving me alone at home to work and figure out what to do with all those empty hours. Unfortunately, my FM decided I should spend that time in pain and exhausted. I don't like FM at all! It's a jerk, always showing up at the worst time and kicking you when you're down.
