Hi! Thanks for looking at my mod. I'm new to the scene but I'm loving what I can accomplish so far. If you have any suggestions please let me know! This is designed to be a more specialised version of my spoonie trait.

What is fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition that causes widespread pain across the body, along with a whole host of other symptoms including IBS and extreme fatigue.


Autonomy is uncomfortable and lazy. This means they autonomously take naps. There is a 2x autonomy modifier so that Sims sleep more often, but I'm unsure if it truly works.


Energy decays 2.5x faster, this is because many fibromyalgia sufferers have chronic fatigue as well.
Bladder decays 2x faster, this is because many fibromyalgia sufferers have IBS.

Relationships, both romantic and physical decrease 1.5x faster. This is because it can be extremely difficult to make friends if you are constantly having bad pain days.

Sims with Fibromyalgia have an athletic skill modifier of -2. For example, if they are level 3 fitness, they will act as if they are level 1. Fitness skill also increases at half the rate it usually would, as it can be extremely difficult for people with fibromyalgia to exercise even though it's good for us.

A Disclaimer
Even though I myself suffer from fibromyalgia, this mod may not be accurate to your daily life if you also suffer from fibromyalgia. Everyone suffers differently, and if you'd like me to add something let me know!

Hi! Thank you so much for making this mod, it's truly one of the most in-depth and complex Trait mods for the Sims out there and I appreciate it a lot. <3
I have one question/request though - I have a sim with your fibromyalgia Trait and he is almost unplayable for me. During a one week period my sim had to sleep for almost 16h a day and when he woke up it was only to eat and shit and he was uncomfortable all the time (not in the mood to do anything). The set chance percentages of all the possible uncomfortable statuses so high that ALL days are the bad ones for one reason or the other and even sometimes the bad fibro statuses overlap. Could you maybe make a 'slighter' version of the mod where all those statuses are less likely to appear and the multipliers of bad energy and bladder aren't so high? It would boost the playability of the sims suffering the conditions. Thank you!
