    MatchboxLizard updated the condition Generalized Anxiety Disorder

    • First symptom:
    • Diagnosis:

    I think this is part of my fibro, not necessarily a separate condition. It was diagnosed because it was a piece my doctor had a code for. Having said that, anxiety is and always has been part of my genetic make up, like the color of my hair. It is a necessary component of hypervigilance, which will be the death of me. My body is in a permanent state of alertness, watching for danger. Hard on the organs...

    I am no longer working, and this eliminated a ton of external stress, plus I am regularly practicing positive affirmations.

    I'm having kidney pain today. To my knowledge I have no diagnosed issues with my kidneys, but seem to have this pain from time to time. Am I missing something?

    • First symptom:
    • Diagnosis:

    More than a year since my last entry, and the primary treatment for my FM has failed miserably....denial of my condition is not an effective treatment. The meds that I am on seem to be doing there job, but more important than that, I must get quality sleep, and I must get a little exercise each day. Just walking a little more than I normally would during a routine day helps dial down the pain, and improves my mood.

    Welcome to my life. There is a symptom that needs to be added....detachment. I am numb, and know I need to shake this off and get ready to go to work, but I could care less. Liesa is going to be upset about another missed day, but I can't get up enough energy to care. So tired....

      Current flare has ended, and I got a decent night of sleep. I am a little achy all over, but none of the localized bonfires that go along with a flare. I am very concerned about money, and cannot seem to stop worrying about it.
