As well as fibromyalgia I have degenerative disc disease and am riddled with arthritis.
I am an avid reader (fortunately) which to me is a lifesaver, as I cannot do much housework, if any, when I have a fibro flare up. I also have a small dog, which my husband and I take out every day. Going out helps me mentally, as does stroking and grooming my dog.
