I wish there was a magic wand musselsuld b used to let others know how painful Fibromyalgia & Interstitial Cystitis truly is. I hate that others think all it consist of is having to pee more & sore mussels as if all I have done is had a little to much water & had a hard workout. When I was diagnosed 10 yrs ago I had no idea how these conditions would progress so rapidly & change my whole world. How it would steal me from not only me but my family & friends. People dont understand that we were forced to learn to work & smile through the EVERY day pain. Just because we look like we are fine doesn't mean we are. We should be at the Oscars accepting the award for best actress. I went to school for a nursing degree & cant do what I luv because my bosses doesn't want an employee that spends more time in the bathroom or at a dr office then with their patients. Or being so tired because last night I couldn't get any sleep cause between getting up every 20 mins to pee & the insomnia ( no matter how tired I am) & the pain through out my body. I sometimes feel so alone just cause no one understands what I live with day in & day out. Theres NO escape! All I can do is pray tomorrow will b better & know that theres others that have it worse then myself.
