I am barely making it through the day now, I am terrified about symptoms getting worse before they get better. Now that my kids are older or grown, I am reconsidering taking the plunge. Fibro hit full-on in 1999- 16 months after a traumatic event. How long should I expect to be worse after starting the protocol? How long can I expect to be down because it gets REALLY bad and I am maintaining a livable baseline now.
