Good afternoon to everyone, I am really sorry in advance for this post but I just needed a bit of understanding from somewhere. I don't know why I am like this its not like me, I am emotional full of pain in my ankles and feet because I have overdone it and its making me really down. The story goes - I have been really busy this week trying to get food in, presents etc & I was invited to go to Manchester to a works Christmas event starting at the Art Gallery I caught the train and walked to the gallery & was walking all afternoon. I knew I was tired before I went and then the following day supermarket etc by the time I had finished shopping I could hardly walk and I am still very bad today. I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, Osteoarthritis of the Knees and Hashimoto's thyroid issues. But my ankles have never felt like this they are burning and aching even when I am sat down.
It is the feeling of hopelessness of everything I try to do something gets me whether its blood pressure, eye problems, wonky blood results, knee pain, fatigue or something else that is getting to me. I was always so very active and trying to get so much done in a day and now it is like I am an old lady (54) as I have to say no to things all the time. I am so sorry for having a rant and moan just so emotional and there never seems anyone who completely understands. My partner is fabulous but I live just with my son, who is not really that helpful or understanding of it. You feel that people think you are a hypochondriac when you say you are not well again and can't do something that is the worst feeling.
