Hi welcome to a lovely supportive site - you are not alone we are here - you are not useless - we do what we can in life - and when dealing with chronic pain - life becomes more challenging - I am sure your daughter understands - hope you have pain free day (if that's ever possible) take care. Neese. x


Please don't feel alone. You have come to the right place for support and friends. How old are your daughters. From what I surmised they are still quite young. I have 2 granddaughters aged 10 and 8 and they understand Nana cannot always do stuff but I plan visits before hand and then supervise!! When I need to rest they are happy to sit on the bed and do crosswords, puzzles or just chat. They know Nana has "Achy Bones"....

You certainly have many health problems which I hope in time will ease off for you....

Welcome to the site. I am presuming that all these operations have caused the fibro I flare. I can imagine that the spinal operation is very scary to contemplate. Have you had a look on the mother site Fibromyalgia Action UK as there is a wealth of Information.

Havea look on the right hand d side of your screen about locking your posts as that way only he fibro community will see what you and any members who reply say. That way you will get more replies as people feel they can be more detailed with their help. There is normally someone around to talk to, please come on when you need to. The Admins are extremely helpful if you get stuck. Look forward to your future posts.x
