My family were racially abused by local people for a period of four year, there was over 20 police incidents and to date we have been to court as witnesses over 15 times.
The last incident was a year past September where five people forced there way into our home and brutality attacked us in front of our three screaming children.
That was breaking point for us we couldn't take anymore so we left our dream home, business family and friends and moved 30 miles to another area. We have found the "system" in our country to be appalling, and we were yet again victimised for having our own property and business when trying to apply for benefits.
During the attack two people had hold if my head and were repeatingly banging it off a radiator, I was left with severe neck and shoulder pain as well as my face badly bruised and swollen.
This pain in my neck and shoulder wouldn't budge, I was given tramadol, imbrufen, codamol, and put on fluoxetine.
The pains started spreading through my body and the doctor kept saying it was all stress related, after visiting a therapist they confirmed I had PTS.
I'm unsure of when the pain "settled" in my legs, feet and hands, but it has made it's self at home and lives there 24/7.
Some days are worse than others but the nights are never ending and I feel so desperate and frustrated when no pills can take the pain away. I'm now on pregabin and duculoxine, since being di agonised with fibermyalgia at the pain clinic.
My consultant said there is no medical evidence that it has been caused with the PTS but she has willingly gave evidence in court that she blames the attack on my condition now.
My life has been snatched away from me and I'm finding it very difficult to cope with this new painful, constantly tired existence.
My legs get so painful and hot and feels like someone is sticking a thousand pins into them, my feet are sore and weak and sometimes moving my toes can be horrendous same with my hands and fingers.
Most days I just want to stay under the duvet and in the time we've been living here I only go out to see to my children and hospital and doctor appointments.
After a battle and having to go through two traumatic appeal tribunals. " I get so angry that I'm being judged and questioned over this condition and having to constantly convice others that the pain does excist". I am on ESA work group ( but only been called to one interview the guy said he could see my head was all over the place, as we still have court cases to attend, that last thing on my mind was looking for a job) I have also been awarded standard rate pip daily living.
I have pain clinic this week so here's hoping the have found a magic potion to give me my life back.
Sorry if I've downloaded to much information but once I start I can't stop, there is so much went on in my life that it would be a best seller should I write a book.
My three year old daughter is the best medicine for me most days and in truly blessed that i have her to keep me going.
So just wondered if anyone else developed fibermyalgia through a trauma in there lives.
Thank you for listening and I wish you's all a pain and stress free 2016.
