Hello everyone. This is my first time writing here. I don't know if I will be able to remember to fill this in every day as my memory is terrible and I don't remember from one second to the next lol 😁. I have had fibro and chronic pain for nearly 20 odd years. It started from a car accident I had. I thought it was just my work as I was a nurse who was sore all the time anyway, but when the pain increased and never eased or went away after a length of time I realised there was something more to this pain than just the ordinary being sore from lifting patients and constantly being on your feet all day, as you'd expect nursing would entail.
I saw my doctor who diagnosed me with fibro etc and eventually I had to give up my job which I really loved and I had trained hard to get to where I was because the pain had become unbearable.
Over the years I have developed depression and sometimes I can't get out of bed I'm that sore. I walk with a stick, at my age, but I need it to lean on and steady myself or else I would fall. I wish they would find a cure to this debilitating illness or at least some really good pain relief that actually does something to ease it.
I've ranted on now enough but I would just like to say hello to you all and I hope you are having a better day than I am. X
