Hi lynne09,


I hear exactly what you are saying! It has got to be so difficult to realize this all was likely a problem for you since your childhood!


If you were able to get a good nights' sleep, you might just feel like you've slept on a cloud, I would imagine.


Fibromyalgia certainly doesn't allow for a decent sleep pattern. I was diagnosed in the 1980s with Fibro, so I have great empathy for you. It is amazing how we tend to adapt to the hands we are dealt, isn't it?


Your second to the last sentence, I can relate very well with:

"...I ache all over, I have fever and chills and am exhausted more so than normal".


There are pain medications that are available, one of which has given me the opportunity to be able to sleep at night.

I'm sure you have been using one for years, but I know the memory foam really helps to relieve me of painful pressure points while working on sleeping.


I haven't done so yet, but would also like to take this opportunity to welcome you to this wonderful family of ours! This "family" is loving, caring and supportive. When folks have like experiences, they share.

I so appreciate everyone here and I am so glad that you have found your way here and are posting!

Special Hugs,
