Nov 26, 2017 6:38 PM

35 illness started when I was 29 and I am newish on here too. I've not really stuck to these chat rooms before as I like to stay positive and find they can be really draining. This is the longest I have lasted on one as it's more about sharing what works for people which is more positive. So welcome and I hope you find it useful x

I'm 17, I've been dealing with chronic widespread pain for the past 7 years and I've been in and out of hospitals for the past year and a half due to VH, CFAP & SMAS.

Dec 02, 2017 1:26 PM

I am 56 going on 90 or at least I feel that way. I have had chonic pain for at least 15 years but the last two years has reduced me to a little old man. I was a really tough guy, but some days I feel like a pool aching jelly, totally emasculating. My bad days out way my good days. I have not given up yet, but I feel it is close.

Jan 17, 2018 1:23 PM

I am 40. I've abused my body through working too much, ignoring pain until it destroyed me. I've spent most of the last year immobile due to a laundry list of autoimmune diseases.

Jan 30, 2018 11:25 AM

56. Last year going into this year, was my worst ever.

Jan 31, 2018 12:35 AM

Diagnosis with RSD at 19. Who would have thought 20 years later, 4/5 name changes that I still would be suffering. I was told it would burn out in twenty. What happen to my burn out???? LOL

Feb 04, 2018 4:31 PM

15 and have had chronic pain since I can remember. Diagnosis relatively new tho. So far nothing but ungodly amounts of painkillers works.

Feb 04, 2018 6:15 PM

These posts are amazing and so are all of you. So much strength and determination humbles me greatly. I've spent most my life egnoring the plight of others telling others to suck it up and move on. In 2014 my wife complained of back pain which turned into degenerative disks that turned into surgery. I pushed her throughout the ordeal to suck it up and provided little mercy. In 2016 I broke my back from underlying osteogenesis imperfecta type 1. My whole life changed and my eyes opened wide to the world of pain. By God's mercy my wife had been by my side. I've fallen in love with her all over and now we take each day by day protecting each other. My sincere respect to all of you who has suffered more and for longer then I. I learn a lot from your posts and support.
