Fibromyalgia Action UK



Hi I have just been diagnosed on Wednesday after 10 years. At least I know now I have a condition not just plain crazy.😳 also under threat of redundancy and it's a very stressful time . Out campaigning for hours on my days off to help save our jobs (but in reality will still lose out) I will be penalised coz I was off for 3.5 months with Stress and uncontrollable blood pressure and the worrying is making me suffer more. 😢

Still feeling sorry for myself as I don't think it has quite sunk in yet tomorrow I go to doctor to start pain management

It has been comforting reading everyone's stories I know I am not alone now and can express how bad I am feeling as people look at you see you look healthy and think you are pulling a fast one .... If only

Sorry to hear you have so much stress it does not help.

Hope things good ok. Pain management is useful.

Actually I have noticed that we do look different but that most people don't look carefully enough. I change colour.

Gentle hug and welcome
