This week I have spent almost the entire days in bed. I know there are others like me who have so much pain or are so tired that it's hard just to make it through the day. In the past, I joined other Fibromyalgia communitites, but I did not get much helpful feedback. I hope to be more fortunate here
My pain started in 2001, that's way before I got the official diagnosis. When I look back at my life I see that I probably had the precursors for most of my life, with people thinking I was just making it up. Even today I meet doctors who look at me sideways, because they don't even believe that it's a serious disease, just some people making a big deal out of a little pain!
I have created a drawing of my pain to better illustrate what I am feeling: card.catchmypain.com/XQSolM...
I'm glad to be here!
