Hello fellow fibro people, I was at hydrotherapy last sunday & I have been advised by the physio there to claim for a disabled person freedom pass & a blue badge. My husband got me the forms & I haven't been able to fill them in as I get too emotional. I guess I saw myself as having an illness & not as a disabled person, if I qualify for the pass & the badge then it kinda confirms I won't get better & i'm only going to get worse.
The physio that I see agreed with the hydro physio, I feel so down at the moment & my family just don't understand & then you get told to lose weight as well by the doctor. The doctors say you need to take your medication which causes your metabolism to slow down causing the weight gain, but you can't stop the medication as the pain gets too bad, & if you don't eat your body tends not to function so well.
