Hello everyone that's new here! I hope you feel welcome and able to post on here whenever you need some comfort. We are all here to vent, ask questions and give some feedback! I hope you all have less pain today and more sleep!
Welcome to you both, Louielou & Ilovejay! When and if you feel up to it post a little about yourselves so we can get to know you. I hope you find the support, love, & friendships everyone here needs, from those like us who truly understand! 🙂💕🙏🌼
Hello I am 42 years old, married and have 3 grown children aged 20, 18 and 16. I was told I had fibro in January 2015 after years of being sent for rays and blood tests etc. In the past year my symptoms have rapidly gotten worse. Just last week my legs went from under me whilst walking downstairs and I'm now in a cast up to my elbow with a broken wrist. I was at doc's yesterday about headaches that I've been experiencing and being referred for head scan. My husband is so supportive of me and my children are also but there are times when they seem to get annoyed at me. I'm the type of person who doesn't ask anyone for help and they would sit and watch me struggle. I feel such a burden sometimes to them all.
I'm so sorry Louielou. It's very hard for all of us to swallow our pride and ask for health. I hunk it's because we were all use to helping others. There is a lot of good info on old posts, so when you can just read through them. You can search specific topics by using the looking-glass umbilical; fibro, exercises, pain meds, etc. Good luck and God bless! 🙂💕🙏🌼
Welcome LouIelou and Ilovejay! So glad you have decided to join our family. I have been involved just since this month and find it is such a blessing to be among people who understand and care. And this is available 24/7 365! So even during those sleepless hours this is here!
Welcome to Catchmypain, louielou and I lovejay... You have found a great place for support and friendship.Louielou, I am sorry that you struggle in front of grown children that just watch you struggle. This is the time now in your life when you might have to make other changes necessary to live your new normal...(ie... asking for assistance and setting new boundaries.. Flappylady has a wonderful internet site she referred all the new fibromyalgia sufferers too...and then Alwayzinpain, can tell you about the spoon theory. It is a very good description for all pain warriors. I don't have fibromyalgia. So all I can do is empathize, and share live and encouragement. My issues are spinal and arthritic in nature. Nonetheless, we all help and love each other here. Sending you much love and blessings,Terri
