Thank you! It is nice to know we aren't alone in this. Finally a friend with fibro who is close to my age. It's sometimes difficult where I live because there just aren't many women under 50 that I've met in the same situation. I also start to feel guilty when these older ladies are med free. But then I start to think how different their days are. Most of them are retired and do not work 40 hours a week. They rarely have children still living at home, and if they do it's older or adult children they aren't required to taxi around to various after school activities. I might be physically better if I could exercise more, sleep in, and didn't have the additional stresses of raising a family and working full time. All those factors play a huge role in my pain levels. I'm in no way attempting to lessen what they are experiencing I'm only pointing out how different and often more flexible their day to day activities vary from my own.

Hi Jeni! I just responded to your recent "guilt over pain meds" post on the boards. I really understand some of what you're saying! I am younger (35) than most of the fibro patients I know on here too, and I often feel like a big baby because I am functioning at a much, much higher level than some too -- so why "dope myself up" if I don't "have to," you know?

Anyway, I want to wish the best and say I am sad you're in the same (similar?) boat but glad you're here on Spark. I've added you as a friend! emoticon
