Living with fibromyalgia

Mar 02, 2018 3:02 PM

Alright so I’m trying to finally get ahold of everything with my fibromyalgia and acceptance of this new thing in my life. So I need yalls help, how do I turn all my complaints and moaning and groaning into positivity and like nice things haha. I just know since I’ve been dealing with this it’s like my pain runs my life and I’m tired of it!

Don’t worry I say that I’ve come to except it but don’t think I really comprehend it I just really hope something happens and it all clicks

Its a lot to take in i find the one thing i have the hardest time trying to deal with is that there is no cure and ill be in pain for the rest of my life i never thought id wake up one day sick and never get better and the frustration that nothing takes all the pain away it only dulls the pain im sure one say ill get there where im close to excepting it but that day is a long way away yet you will get there to its going to take a while though ❤

I’ve recently been diagnosed and I’m struggling. I’m a 19 year old student and I feel like I can’t keep up with everyone else my age. Nobody really understands the pain and fatigue. Advice?❤️

I totally understand redstringsss! I’m lucky enough that I’m already married and was diagnosed after so he’s stuck now haha. he struggles with it just like anyone would but luckily he’s supportive but I know it’s not easy. I’ve quite college but me and my husband also own our own business but I honestly still probably need to go back but anyway... I could feel symptoms in my mid teens I could sleep forever because I was always soooo fatigued but keep your head up there will be better day and enjoy those! Because we all know there are bad ones to come my best advice is find that support it can help more then anything when nothing else will honestly this support and knowing someone else out there feels the same and goes through what I am too

I wish I could give some kind of positive feedback about fibro and chronic pain, but the last 6 years of my life have just gone from bad to worse. The last 6 months I’ve been nearly home bound other than church when I can, and the doctors appointments. I’m 42 yrs. old and I feel horrible all the time. My 88 yr old grandma gets around better than I do. It’s horrible...I have to call on my parents who are in their late 60’s to come and help me do basic housework or grocery shopping...I wish I knew of a way to cope or a support group or something that would help me look on the bright side more often. Don’t get me wrong, I do have a good day (7 instead of 9 or 10) once in a while but they are few and far between.

I understand I’m still just trying to figure it all out but looks like we’re all figuring it out together
