Since I was diagnosed with fibro gradually one by one I have lost friends as I was the lively fun loving party girl now all I want is to get home feet up and p.j's.
When I do make the effort to go out I normally feel so exhausted I'm not able to enjoy myself . I miss the fun of going out but I know I just can't do it so i concentrate on the things that make me happy and spend my time with the people that understand and care . The people that are no longer in my life or your life are not worthy of our friendship .
But ... Sometimes all I do is work come home work come home I get very lonely and very down . I totally understand what all my fellow fibro friends are going through. It's so hard to be positive but never ever give up hope be happy with the present the past is the past and no one knows what the future holds but we all can have a fantastic time finding out making new friends along the way X
I know how you feel I have lost all my so called friends and even family members think I am playing the victim I won't love my old life back but try as I do its just not going to happen it's so hard to make the adjustments when you are in the dark ast to what will come next I have ra and secondary fibromyalga this group has been a godsend to me I wish you well
To lose the support of friends is difficult but family members must be upsetting . Have you given them reading material I fibro as non of my family had ever heRd of the condition and having all the information to read about the condition made it so much easier for them to understand and support me.
I really wish you well x
Well I understand what you say but I should not have to explain my self there respect and love should have been all that was needed
Family love should be unconditional I know it must be very difficult not to get that when you really need it the most .
