hi im lynn
i have had fibro for years now
i feel my illness has got a bit easier to deal with
at first for a couple of years it was really hard but i have found with painkillers which i try not to take every day and anti-depressant which actually do help with the pain do make things easier ...i had to give up my job which i loved as a carer ..thats the worst thing cos people think cos you look well you feel well and theres nothin wrong with you...but its too difficult to hold down a full time job..even driving can be painful...so you feel like a loose end cos you use up all your energy just tidying up the house doin washing etc....but its very frustrating cos you want to go out and work...
i feel ive lost my identity havin this illness...thats the worst thing....and i cant get it back!!! also you are stuck with it its not like its goin to go away....anyway ive done my moaning for the day...hope you all are happy and keeping as comfortable as you can ..if you want to ask me anything please fire away....thanx for reading my post.........lynn
