Decided no matter what today is beautiful. So yes I woke up with pain, took hot shower then my flexeril, norco and neurontin and began my day! Ok, hurt like no other, but still seeing beauty today. The weather change in a nightmare as it gets colder but remaining positive at least for today. Hugs to all of you amazing, strong people.View Thread
Well for me fatigue dies not mean that I'm feeling sleepy, it is more a feeling of being completely drained of energy. This may seem a strange analogy but I keep thinking of a sponge that is full of water then it is squeezed all of the water out of it until I get the very last drop.You feel weak and sad.
After months of going through pain, sensitivity, numbness and so many other things, I get a diagnosis, Fibromyalgia. Fantastic, I look perfectly fine yet I can't be touched, have problems walking, and can't even complete a simple household chore. Some days I wake up crying and don't even get out of bed. How do you go about getting a job if your not sure that you can get out of bed in the morning? How do you explain to your family what this does to you? I feel like I am being judged when I am not looking. I have always been the person that would get up in the morning and look in the mirror, smile and say good morning to myself. Lately, I can't look at myself and most mornings, really not good. I think I'm angry at this point, maybe sad and disappointed in myself as I cannot push this pain and fatigue back. It's overwhelming. Am I over reacting? View Thread
Nancy, Thank you for the words of encouragement. When my doc checked trigger points, he was floored as well. He said he needed 11 to 18 for diagnosis but found well over that amount. I appreciate that I have a place to go and vent! I am also creating a journal; to release my feelings, it has made a difference. This dragon will learn not to bit so hard daily!
Good Morning Mimi, Thank you for your response. Your words help me to realize that I will have go to "tools" yo help me through the rough days. I am looking into whether or not I have vitamin deficiency, and looking into support like this one to get info and ideas from those that have been dealing with this dragon. I know that one thing that really helps me is music. For me it is a focal point that takes me away from the pain. I wish it made a difference when I do house work! House work is a whole other nightmare! If I do housework I pay for it for the next few days. Thanks again, This has amde my day.View Thread
