A couple of good articles

Sorry I haven't posted in so long. Again. The last couple of months have been busy and difficult and I can't seem to find the motivation to do much of anything. It's something I'm working on, so I hope to post more frequently in the near future.

Here are a couple of interesting articles about fibro. Both of them validated some of the odd things I experience so I thought I'd share them.

The following article probably has the best description of fibro that I've read, so far. I was surprised to see difficulty in focusing the eyes listed. I definitely have that, but I hadn't read about it anywhere else. Anyway, I thought this article would be a good one to bookmark to send to anyone who wants to know what having fibro is like. (Or, even if they don't want to know but you think they should :)


Here is another one that explains (a little bit) the effect the weather can have on our symptoms. I definitely notice the worsening of symptoms in December and an improvement in April or May when it starts warming up. I also feel it when low pressure moves in. It's good to know this is normal!


Does the weather effect you in this way? What about low humidity, does it worsen your symptoms? (I'm just curious - it's very wet here so low humidity isn't something I have much experience with.)
