So this is me well the shell that contains what used to be me....
I'm 37 and was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia Oct 2014 and Dengentive disc disease in two places last month...I had problems before my diagnosis which resulted in a hysterectomy Nov 2012 at the grand old age of 33, it was soo bad I collapsed in my car whilst driving as a cyst on my ovary had burst, apparently I managed to park the car before falling out the door (not that I remember this)
When I got my diagnosis for the Fibromyalgia I had been training with a personal trainer 4x a week doing walks of about 7 miles at a time had lost alot of weight and finally working in my dream job and Fibromyalgia has destroyed all of that I'm now 7st heavier as exercise makes it worse or should I say the exercise I like (kickboxing and fast walking) I had to give up my job as I worked with elderly clients and I was proved to be a safeguarding issue because my hip kept giving way.... My partner doesn't come near me anymore because he's scared he will hurt me :( my 14yr son is Autistic with ADHD and can be quite a handful, none of the medications have helped this far and right now I've had enough .... People keep telling me there's light at the end of the tunnel but after all this time I'm really struggling to see it :(
Any advice , coping strategies etc would be hugely appreciated before I go stir crazy !!!! Thanks for listening to my rant :p
