I'm not coping at all well since I last posted. I have been in the most horrible pain and the fatigue I have is so draining. The only positive is that I finally (after years of tests) have been given a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia. I had an idea I had it but when I looked on their website I realised I've been suffering with it a lot longer than first thought. It has taken over my life. I can't do most of the things I used to as I have to think ahead all the time. Even playing with my grankids can leave me totally exhausted. There are days when I cannot even dress myself so I slob around in my jimmies. I'm not feeling sorry for myself i'm just so bloody angry at how useless I feel. I lost my job through it. Frustration is now my middle name. There is a positive. It has made me rethink how I can spend my days. I bought a sewing machine and i'm learning how to use it. My grankids end up with the soft toys/ragdolls I make and hopefully when I get a bit better at it I can pass stuff on to charity shops. I even buy old stuff from them to make the toys, cute eh? So that's me folks. Someone not quite ready to say die. Big hugs all xx
