I just wanted to say hi. I'm new to this community. Diagnosed last year with fibromyalgia, degenerative disk disease, three herniated/ruptured lumbar disks, arthritis, spondylitic something or other, and various additional things that I either had already or have developed with everything. My disability just got canceled leaving me in the lurch but I'm speaking it. My pain doctor refused to fill out my abilities forms claiming that wasn't his job, but I didn't know about it until my denial letter. My primary care physicians assistant however has picked up the ball and filled then or and my shrink (major depressive disorder, panic attacks, social phobia, agoraphobic etc) also filled out the psych part. Sorry for writing so long, but I'm scared and still having trouble accepting that this is my lot? It hurts, I can't ever get away from the hurt and even with my family and bf's support I don't know how long I can do this. Dies it ever stop hurting? My mom has fibro and she stays medicated, so I have a choice, medicate into a coma or be in constant pain. I know there are far worse situations I'm just.... I guess I'm in a poor me mood. I'm sorry, not a great first impression. It's been a particularly bad day. I hope that you are all having a pain free evening and doing as well as possible.
