Janet ,
I have had rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia since 1989 and it can get VERY bad but you have to keep a good attitude and try to continue to do most of the activities that you always enjoyed even though it can be difficult. I have lots of headaches, "all over" body aches, depression, and severe fatigue. All you can do is try to live a healthy lifestyle and try to exercise and be as active as you can be. Your mental attitude can help a lot, even when you feel so bad that you are really down! On the very "bad" days take a well deserved break and other days try to do something that you enjoy, I sew, quilt, and craft and it helps me. I hope this little bit of info helps and remember you're not alone, lot s of people suffer from this condition...............BackwoodsTess
