So, today was a high pain day for me.  Yesterday I was diagnosed with fibromyalgiaI have been experincing a lot of pain, and in the beginning I thought that  my arthritis was increasing.  And I had been told that due to my PTSD there was a chance that my body hurt due to "conversion syndrome".  I understood, conversion syndrome made sense, and for that matter so did fibromyalgia.  I worked with my doctor and my psychitrst to reconsider my daily medicines.  It is difficult to get other people to understand why I am not as involved this year in outdoor projects, and that it is merely depression, so I should just be able to just cheer up and see a postive side of things.  But this is more than that, when your feet actually ache from touching the ground, it is just not fun to be outside.  Is there anyone out there who understands ?
