Welcome to our group, Amanda. Just remember, although your doctor said you need to be more active, you must limit your activities. The only way to control fibromyalgia is pacing - whether you use a pedometer, a timer or other device. www.cfidsselfhelp.org/library/2-find -y our-limits

"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm! P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!
Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL
Hi, my name is Amanda and I am a 33 year old wife and mother. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 2 weeks ago. I was told by my doctor that becoming active and losing weight were two keys to controlling pain. So, here I am trying to find a way to enjoy life again and become more physically functional. I have to start a new medication that can cause weight gain; that is a bit intimidating, but as the doctor said, I do control what goes into my mouth. I hope that with the support of this group I can adapt to this part of my life. I really want success in order to be the most active and joyful person I can be.
