I am 58 yrs. old. I have 2 grown daughters and 4 grandchildren. I quit working the last of 2008 because the fibromyalgia and anxiety had become unmanageable and my doctor stated I needed to quit work and try to get a handle on it.
After working at the same job for 22 yrs. and 4 months I had to quit work.
Cold weather makes me hurt worse. Changes in the barometric pressure make me hurt more than usual.
My passion was riding my Harley, which is becoming harder for me to do because I am loosing more strength with each passing year.
June 23, 2010 - I haven't been on here for many months. I just simply have no interest in much of anything. The days seem to pass and nothing much ever changes. I'm so tired of not being able to do any of the things I previously loved to do. I suppose this will pass sooner or later too.
Tried to start a new med for help with sleep a few weeks ago, but could only try it for one night because I was having such terrible back pain and couldn't take anything for the pain with the new med for sleeping. I've been going to see a chiro and he has helped me with my back. I have to be very careful with it now. I guess I will try to start the new med for sleeping again and see how I do on it.
Feb. 19, 2011 - Last April 2010, my daughter was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer and was on chemo. 2010 was not a good year, very stressful for everyone. She has now been given word that SHE IS CANCER FREE!!! I thank God for that.
