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 ?

It is nice to meet you!   My name is Ronni, and I am 35, and I live in VT.  I am owned by 2 ferrets and a Boston Terrier.  I have three children.  I am a CNA (Certified Nurses Assistant) and I work at home, thanks to a wonderful program my state provides.  I am able to take care of my loved one who is in a wheelchair.  I was on the Care2 website years ago, but unfortunetly was not as active as I would have liked to have been.
  Well, that is all for now, hope you have enjoyed your weekend.  Happy Father's Day!
