Hi Mitzi! We understand how the constant pain can influence our outlook on life. (((gentle hugs))))

Welcome to SP! We are here to listen, encourage, and support you on your journey. Don't apologize....this is where we are honest since we all understand and can relate.

There is another SparkTeam for those with restricted mobility issues who help each other with the exercise part of having a more healthy life. You can find it if you click the Community tab and then SparkTeams, if you are interested.

Blessings upon your journey!

Blessings,
Heidi

Proverbs 3: 5-8 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones. "

Hi there. My name is Mitzi and I have had fibromyalgia for 10 years and rheumatoid arthritis for 17 years. I joined SparkPeople after seeing a link on the Arthritis Foundation website. Currently I am taking the max dosage of Lyrica and still have pain and fatigue. When I started the Lyrica, I gained 30 lbs in 2 months - which I did not need. I have read many of the posts below and can relate to so many of you. I don't talk about my disorders either - because people who have not gone thru what we do on a daily basis cannot understand. I am here on Spark People to lose 95 lbs and connect with people in the same sinking ship. Sorry, that is very pessimistic - I am also trying to be more positive and have a better attitude but most days are a challenge.
