The unknow

The unknow

I have 2 kids and 3 dogs. I love animals. I worked with horses for many years then went into dog grooming and canine psychology.

I have had chronic pain for past 9 years after my 2nd C-section went wrong but few months ago got a Fibro diagnosis on top of that after changes in physical and mental health changed. Back under pain team to change the cocktail i currently have.

Feeling in limbo in life at the moment as having a flare up and a reality check as to whats happening. Trying to pace and do things but its really had at the moment. I don't understand the system either. I have always worked and tried. I get DLA and was getting EESA now they tell me I have to go for Job seekers. I want to laugh and cry because if i could i would but somedays my legs wont work and i cant move. I know im not alone but feel like hitting head on a wall as the system doesn't seem to fit me in.

On a positive I try to work with what i have and find ways around whats hard. Trying is definitely me :D. Still not sure what to write here and feel like im waffling on

  • Hi is fine! I understand your spiritual way, I find it fascinating. We all need an open mind.

    Do you have Fibro? Has it been diagnosed or are you still going through the process? Tell us a little about your medical delights. It's always good to meet a new member of the Fibro brigade 🐸

  • I thought you said Fire Brigade then Sorebones duh! ☺ xx

  • Yeah! That's a great idea! We are the Fibro fire brigade! Fits lol xxx

  • BlueMermaid3 , Lu, Slow down my friend. You could be thinking all kinds of things, lol We wouldn't want that!! your friend, Peck❤

  • Hi, Yes I have fibro, chronic pain which was the onset of it. Started 9years ago when my C-section went wrong. Diagnosis only came for fibro few months ago

    Thing i'm finding the hardest is we all have so many symptoms and likenesses with fibro suffers yet not many doctors are that clued on it

  • I like the name you've chosen!

    I love animals too, some of the best therapy.

    I hope you enjoy being on here, lots of good people here.


  • Thanks Terry, new to all of this. Animals definitely help along with sense of humour which is hard at times

  • I think maintaining a sense of humour is the hardest of all...

  • Hi WW...I am the same as I love dogs too. We have a Greek rescue who we named Maximus (Max for short) and one of the many things I hate is not being able to play rough house with him and take him on long walks.....Fibro has a lot to answer for.

    Do you have fibro or are you just thinking that you may have it due to your symptoms? Whatever....I wish you a happy day and would love to see a photo of your dogs. Trikki. x

  • Hi, with you all the way with walking and rough play. I have a boxer, Denzel and 2 Lhasa Apso's

  • Hello :)

  • Hello, Its lovely to meet you. I am sorry you are having a difficult time at the moment. It's awful that you are struggling to get what you are entitled too, we work for years, pay our taxes, and when we need help ourselves we are treated like we are asking for a government handout that isn't required.

    This forum is fantastic, the people here are so kind and supportive. You will also find that there are always people on here who have 'been there done that.' And it's nice to speak to others who 'Truly' know how you feel.

    I am here any time you want to talk or even just have a rant. I am one of the Forum admins and I am here to support you in any way I can.

    Hope you feel better soon,

    Holly xx
