hi i have suffered with fm for 10years 3 of those years i just thought it was because of running around after the children and a bad mattress was why i felt like i had been kicked round a rugby pitch every morning lol . since being diagnosed i have tended to dismiss the fact that i have fm. this may be because i dont want it and the fact that my family dont understand it ;-( .
i have learned to live with the pain althugh it does make me feel like an old women at times and i am not yet. the symptom that gets to me the most is the extreme tiredness the days when i feel exhausted from the moment i wake up. every day i wake up feeling tired only on some days it is like i havent slept for days and i become disfunctional . i am studying a degree in mental health nursing and this is full time and full on. i have not told the uni about my fm i dont see the point as many off have pointed out noone understands fm and it would be easy to be classed as lazy grrrrr. i have noticed lately that my moods are varing and i can become very down not depressed just feel sad.
thanks for taking the time to read my blog and i look forward to making new friends who have the same understanding of fm and the respect of the effect of fm xx
