I am new here. I found this app after getting fed up last night with my fibro after 7 years.
I have a child with SPD. We homeschool now, it's better for both of us.
The relationship between my husband and I is rocky but good. He is a support that trys to understand but gets annoyed by the constant pain. I know that if he could fix it he would.
I know opiates are what some of you chose to take but after having them put me in a wheelchair due to the reaction my body had, I will not go back. I have tried so many medications , doctors and treatments. There are still a few I am willing to try and new ones being developed. I try to keep an open mind. I have people tell me about diets, allergies , reset your system , take this and that... I have or am... I try not to let it bother me but it does. 7 years of feeling like a failure is tough.
I didn't have fibro from birth, I am survivor from a pretty terrible disease and surgery that left me with this.
My in-laws said your prior military get over it. Move past this. It's in your head, your not hopeless . Other days when I can't attend something or help move something, or play a sport anymore - I am faking...lol
My chronicly ill (cancer ridden) paternal side of my family stopped talking to me.
What they all don't know is: I push through 99%of my day with only my gabapentin and toprimate. No actual pain meds... Even when I want to die. I keep going . Why because if I don't whobis going to show my son that even when you get tested you need faith (in whatever you want - we choose God) , support , and belief that you can make it..
I suffer from PTSD, Anxiety Disorder , Panic Disorder , Debilitating Migraines, Complicated Migraines, Fibro, Brain Damage , Memory Loss...what else...lol
I was close to completing my associates in Chemical Technology but now I can barely remember atomic mass.... But Art is another thing. The surgery , and the chemicals used to save my life progressed the brain damage just enough that art is now a BIG part of my life and passion.
That's all for now.
Haha as if it wasn't a book already .
