I've had enough

Mar 01, 2016 10:51 AM

I'm so fed up with myself. This flare-up is really getting me down now, I can't do anything without being in pain, even the duvet hurt's. I had hospital yesterday and everyone including me put hope on them to help with the pain. They just told me the same stuff it's fibromyalgia, there's not much that will help with the pain,. It's not going to get better and to do pain management. The only news that was new was the disc's in my lower back is mucked up and the jelly disc is also bad. Didn't understand as the fibro fog is bad, can't remember things. I don't know what to do now. I was hoping that there be answer's. Now I feel like I'm back at the beginning again. I'm usually happy and trying to start my own business up, now I don't feel like anything.

Hugs. You are loved, and you are enough just the way you are. Rest and relax as much as you can for today.
In future, maybe ask doc to write down the info they have, or maybe ask if you can use your phone to record what they say, that you are having a rough day and it will help you to be clear on what is said.
I bet doctors like that, some just love hearing the sound of their own voices, and some will give better info if they know you have a record of it!
