I've no idea what a blog is or does but I guess I will just write about life and feelings. I have been diagnosed fribromyaalgia for around 8-10 years although suffered longer, it has cost me my business as I could no longer keep up with the work, it has cost me my friends as I never felt up to doing anything. I have had like many of you out there a mountain load of greif from ATOS and it has almost finished me off as I haave lost the will tto fight them. My last case I won after 8 months of uncertainty and stress so not really a victory. I cannot talk about things at home as I have aa 17 year old daughter who shows all the symptoms of fibromyalgia and is petrified she will end up like me when she gets older, I cannot function properly and by 7pm my day is over even making a coffee is too much and I find staing awaake almost impossible. With no one to talk to I find myself getting more and more depressed and just really want to stick my head in a hole and let the world go past, don't get me wrong my wife is wonderful and supports me the best she can but nothing can stop me feeling like a waste of time while I am sitting on the sofa completely shattered because I have gotten up and sshe is doing all the house work, and as for talking to her about my problems and how I feel I married her to provide for her now I am a useless waste of space what will it aaccomplish by telling her how useless I am and how little I can do, how weak I am that while she iss out I find it hard to stop crying due to pain and the feelings of being a burden and that the only thing I have ever given my daughter could be a life time of pain .
