Fed up of feeling fed.

Firstly thanks everyone for the advice on my other post. Went to see the gp and looking througn everything he said its fibro and is sending me to see a (hang on having a fuzzy head and cant remember what I was about to put. Grrr) pain specialist. He was angry that none of the othee doctors had picked up on it. Any been fed up the last few weeks seem to catch all the bugs going and now my husband has been in trouble at work for taking time off to look after me hes decided to give up work and help out full time at home as we have a 2yr disabled son and im finding it harder and harder to care for him. I just want to be able to get down on the floor and play games with my children without been in pain so for ranting on. Hope everyones ok. Xx

Sending gentle hugs, and many blessings hope you feel more peaceful soon xx



I'm so sorry you're having such a terrible time. I can totally empathise with you.

I'm sad that there's nothing I can do to help you, but please know that my thoughts are with you.

Sending you lots of gentle hugs your way.

Try to keep your chin up as best you can. You have lots of friends here who will be sending you their thoughts and best wishes.



Fingers crossed the pain clinic will help you.

I've not been yet, but have an appointment in a few weeks time. I've been sent some blurb and was skeptical at first, but it looks like they really could help as they are concerned with improving the quality of your life. I think just seeing someone that understands what you are going through will be a big help.

Keep you spirits up and keep fighting for all the help and/or answers you need x


Thanks for keeping us up to date with what is going on. Glad at last you have a GP who has given you a proper diagnosis and hope that the pain doctor will be able to help you. It is such a pity that your husband has come to the decision that he has to give up work but that will be a big help to you and he will probably feel better as he must have been worrying about youall the time he was at work. Keep us updated on how you are doingx


I manage to get down and play with grandson at least 3 times a week but do suffer after but it`s worth it x

Hi Chrissiebee

I am so sorry to read that both you and your husband are having such a difficult time at the moment, and I genuinely hope that you can both find some resolution and relief to these issues. I will keep my fingers crossed that things pick up for both of you when he becomes your full time carer.

I was wondering if he is receiving or have heard about carers allowance? I have pasted you the link below to the GOV.UK page called: 'How To Claim Carers Allowance'.

I also want to wish you the best of luck with your pain management clinic appointment when you get it? Please keep us updated with how you all get on?

All my hopes and dreams for you

Thanks everyone for the kind words and advice. I love this group I feel less alone knowing u guys are having some of the same problems with fibro. Thanks again everyone. Xxx


So sorry sweetheart, but you should feel better after seeing the pain specialist. Hang in there honey!!! xxx Mitzi


Hi Chrissybee, hopefully now you have a diagnosis you will get to grips with the fibro and the right medication will help with the pain. It does take time to get the right combination but things can improve so hopefully you will get to play with your little boy once more. All the best


hi chrissybee pleased youhave found a good doctor sending you gentle hugs x


My thoughts are with you chrissybee. I hope you can do OK with finances while your husband is not working, and I hope you find a solution to your pain. You and your babies deserve a ittle playtime on the floor. Rant on. Feel better.


So sorry for you - be gentle on yourself.
