:cow-wave: :cow-wave: and :welcome: to our little sanctuary Tara.

You'll find lots of info and advice on here, as well as mountains of support and understanding and a bit of fun along the way. With you just being dx'd and wanting/needing to find answers to questions you have found whirling round and round, you could start by having a look thru some of the posts and topics across the boards. You may come across some ideas to try out that could be of help to you.

WRT pushing your body, forcing your way thru and doing things is something that we try to avoid doing as much as we can as doing so can actually make us feel worse. Instead, working out how long you can do something for without it making you feel too uncomfortable and taking regular breaks so you can pace yourself thru the day and hopefully not have too much taken out of you is how most of us manage things. It can be a bit awkward and frustrating at first, but once you get into your groove, it can help make a difference to how you feel. And with the ages of your children, getting them to help with things can also make things a little more manageable for you. I do know from my own own experiences that it's easier said than done to get the kids involved and helping out tho :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm:

Anything that you want to know about, just ask away and we'll try to help you with it :cow-wave: :cow-wave: :cow-wave: :cow-wave:

Hello Tara.....You have your hands full with 5 children besides fibro. I have been dealing with fibro for 23 years, if I can help anyway, I will try.
