I wish that were true; I have read research as I have gone through my dissertation revisions that emphasize the role of stress and managing fibromyalgia. Maybe the theory is our lives get easier as we get older. If that was the case they did not meet my adult children.

For some reason, I thought I read that fibro gets better with age. Mine has definitely not gotten better.

It's possible is the best I can say. I know in the research emotional/mental/physical trauma has been theorized to promote the onset of fibromyalgia. I know mine was a lot of physical abuse that just tore away at the neurtransmitters. Add the fact when I was in Bible college my gf and I chose to wear formals heavily sequined formals that weighed up to 50 lbs apiece to sing in for my ensemble. They eyes of youth is raving havoc in older age today let me tell you.

I sometimes wonder if the emotional trauma I experienced in my marriage contributed to my fibromyalgia. I left my marriage of 25 years 29 years ago.

20 years ago....

I was in a domestically violent marriage; working a job I hated because my then husband did not hold a job. I was trying to be the perfect little wife with a brad new diagnosis of a syndrome most doctors did not want to even mention let alone treat. Times definitely different today at least in my life.

What was your life like before fibro?

20 years ago, I had a full time job & a significant other. Rolland liked to travel so we flew several places & also took lots of road trips. I got up early to go to work & often worked late. I loved to cook so cooked from Taste of Home Light & Tasty. I had no prescription bottles in my cabinet & took just a few supplements. Oh, how things have changed.

Has your life changed?
