Welcome! I have Fibro! I was diagnosed many years ago. I get a lot of pain with my Fibro and right now I am in a flare up!

Jul 16, 2017 8:47 PM

@Christmas7 I also have fibro and m.e, Sorry to hear your in a flair I'm in one as well unfortunately, it was one of those flairs where it just came out of know where!

Mine began when I moved in June! It is getting Harder and harder for me to move! The packing up is getting more and more difficult Each timeI move! We have resorted to hiring movers ! My husband also has cerebral palsy so it makes things so much simpler! I hope your flare up is short lived! Feel better soon!

Thank you I hope so to, That must have been really hard I can't imagine trying to move in a flair moving is already such hard work! Hopefully your flair will ease off soon 🀞🏻Enjoy your new house 🏑

Thanks! I am now in a new place with an elevator and underground parking! Although we had to let our dog go to move in here It was a decision we had to make. I miss my little Dog though! He was a great support system for me! This will make things easier for me physically! Everything is on one level and no more stairs!

Jul 16, 2017 11:31 PM

I bet your so glad you have a elevator must have made things much easier, it's such a shame you had to let your little dog go but I'm sure he's Very happy, I have a little yorkie called buttons it's so nice having her around, I really wish our house didn't have stairs in it I am finding them more and more difficult to get up it's like they get longer each day!

Jul 16, 2017 11:57 PM

I found the stairs harder and harder each day! That is why we needed to move! Carrying groceries and bottles of water etc. Was getting to difficult to do! Now we have a grocery cart down in the garage to use so I no longer have to pack groceries or water. It is making it much simpler!

Jul 17, 2017 12:07 AM

I can't even carry shopping or water anymore because I'm so weak and it hurts my arms so much, I bet it's made things so much simpler it must be such a relief!

Jul 17, 2017 12:24 AM

It absolutely has! That is why we made the move that we did! It was time for a much needed change. My Fibro has gotten a lot worse over the last little while! The older I get the worse it gets. I am trying to change up my eating as well. That is a new thing for me as well!

Jul 17, 2017 12:29 AM

I'm trying to eat healthier at the moment to it's just so hard when your so exhausted to eat good! My fibro seems to be getting worse and pain killers are helping less and lessπŸ™„

Jul 17, 2017 12:33 AM

I understand completely! The pain has been getting worse! I hope that you can get some relief soon! 😊Hugs!

Jul 17, 2017 12:38 AM

Thank you 😊 I hope you do πŸ’•

@littlelola. I don't mind you asking . I had surgery to fix my chronic pain. Now I just fight my mental health issues. Bipolar. Ptsd . Anxiety and depression. So Honestly I don't feel like I still belong on here .

Jul 17, 2017 1:33 PM

Of course you still belong on here! Your mental Heath conditions are very hard to deal with, and just because your chronic pain has been treated you suffered from it for I assume many years and you can give such good advise about mental health and chronic pain!
Your lovely replys to my questions have helped a lot, Please don't feel like you don't belong hereπŸ˜€

Jul 17, 2017 3:48 PM

Thank you 😊 I am happy I was able to help 😊 Thank you for reminding me that mental health does matter . πŸ€—πŸ€—

Jul 17, 2017 4:02 PM

Of course it matters! 😊

Jul 17, 2017 4:16 PM

For some reason a lot of people don't recognize mental illness as a important thing . I lost my job 6 years ago because of it and I keep to myself for the most part because soon as people hear the word bipolar they go the other way .

Jul 17, 2017 4:19 PM

You definitely shouldn't have lost your job over it πŸ™„ People can be very judgemental!

Jul 17, 2017 4:22 PM

I very much agree . But I learn to except it. Part of our life . People say they are different but not in my experience.

Jul 17, 2017 4:22 PM

Not in my experience either!

Jul 17, 2017 4:32 PM

I look at it as it is there lost . They are missing out on knowing good people.

Jul 17, 2017 4:51 PM

Yes it's there loss not ours!
