Hello, I'm a 34 yr old artist and teacher diagnosed with fibromyalgia a year ago. I deal daily with fibro, CFS, migraines, carpul tunnel to name a few things and have been debilitated and unable to work. I was a high level athlete my whole life also suffered indescribable abuses. I learned to shut the pain in my body down. I suppose this is why I am plagued with fibro today.
Currently in severe flare due to recent stress and unable to cope with life and most days cry and literally want to chop my libmbs off. I was an artist and teacher turned debilitated by fibromyalgia, migraines, carpul tunnel among other things. Medical prognosis is grim as, I can't take drugs due to allergic reactions. The last time I was on Lyrica and other drugs, I had Serotonin Syndrome and serious complications that could have killed me. Recently, I was told there is nothing more they can do and I was crushed.
I constantly seek out alternatives and support in order to survive daily.
People don't understand that because I look good on the outside but that doesn't mean I'm not being ripped apart on the inside. I hope to find support and give support on this forum. Thank you and I look forward to talking with you.
