Hello my names Alice and I'm 25 years old and for 10 years I have been struggling with pain and extreme fatigue to which they gave me multiple blood test and said we put you under the tired category and your bloods have come back normal so it's growing pains or I'm sorry we just don't no what's causing your pain to which I would be angry and upset as they were making me feel I was making it up they just told me to take ibruphen (which didn't work) so I battled every day getting frustrated at my self as I couldn't do what normal people my age could do and was embarrassed that I needed to take naps during the day I went back to the doctors and explained I have been battling this for 10 years and he was amazing listen to me understood me and sent me to a mineral hospital which I now have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, I was upset but also relieved that someone actually understood what I was going through I work 20 hours and I have a 1year old so life is tough but I wouldn't change it for the world I just wish my family understood more I hate being called lazy !! I wish I could but my son in a child care 1 extra day because he loves it but also I can have a restful day and try and get things done at my own pace but child care is so expensive so I wish I could claim pip just to use to give my son that extra day at child minders and do things that I can't always do anyway thanks for letting me moan but no one understands it unless there going through it. I feel for each and every one of you and keep fighting as much as you can I'm not ready to give up yet x
