I have been living with the symptoms of Fibromyalgia for over 20 years. As with most people living with FM I have spent a lot of time, energy and money on numerous therapies, treatments and been involved in many studies with little relief. It had effected all areas of my life so dramatically that at one point I wanted to check out. I thank God I failed at that.
I look forward to meeting new people that understand FM and the complications involved in trying to live a functioning life. I also look forward to sharing and learning new ways to create a life worth living
" But you dont look sick"...and we hear that all the time, don't we? The stigma of your laziness or you can't possibly hurt like that, is very fustrating. I feel this is a form of a virus, harmonal inbalance or some major intestinal disturbance that prevents the body from utilizing nutrition to heal thy self. So my Doc thinks I'm wrong and I cannot afford to seek testing elsewhere.So I watch my diet, lifestyle and mental health keeping it in check constantly. About the weather? That effect on me is major and I have not figureded that one out yet. I should have been a weather girl, if I dont show up for work, its going to rain in the next 2-3 days.^_^
