Hi everyone. I am new, just got the app. I have been dealing with chronic pain for about 10 years(Fibromyalgia, Spondyloarthropathy, Osteoarthritis, etc.). I am hoping the app can help identify pain triggers and that the community can be a support tool for me and that I can be a support for others.
Welcome to our community Woodyswife! You'll find lots of support here. I'm 54 and have been dealing with OA since my 20's, and most recently multiple chronic illnesses; fibromyalgia, sjogrens, hypothyroidism, and many others. I'm fighting fatigue right now, hoping it's not another flare. Hugs, love, & prayers you'll find all the support you need! 🙂💕🙏🌼
Thank you so much Flappysladys. I am also struggling with fatigue this past month. I think mine is partly the fibro and partly depression(I'm bipolar). I am sleeping pretting much around the clock lately. I just got up and git dressed to go out for a walk...hoping that helps. Oh, I am 54 too :)
Greetings Woodyswife! So glad you found your way here. We've been waiting for you to come join us. You will find support that you don't find other places. There's sharing, understanding, empathy, encouragement, many listening hearts, and compassion that is out of this world. So feel free to be transparent. Oddly enough I too have been dealing with fatigue. And fighting feeling a little down. I have been thinking about my future... BUT I know I should be taking things one day at a time. My current health (chronic pain) wasn't anything I ever seen coming. I feel I have a lot of nerve to complain because I am fairly new to this illness compared to many here. Anyway... Didn't mean to make this about me... I was welcoming you... Stay awhile... Could I offer you some herbal tea or a tall glass of water? Sorry I don't drink coffee... That caffeine isn't good for us anyway!
We are so silly! Welcome Woodyswife 💗💐 I have CREST syndrome disease. Fairly new to all this as well, but yet I fit right in! I am also fighting more fatigue than usual these days, & my depression is creeping it's gnarly head again...
