Can't remember last time I posted on here.
I have come so far with living with fibromyalgia. I achieved my goal of returning to work part time. Had only 2 flares in 30 months not on any benefits. Last Thursday my husband collapsed at work with a stroke. Fortunately he has regained full mobility and doesn't need any help with personal care but he has aphasia and some words I can understand. The worse bit is his memory he can't make sense of written words and he just spends all the time on the sofa. We decided that as long as he could take over when I'm suffering fatigue and cooked the dinner that would help me. Fortunately I can draw on my experience of the emotions he is going through and I'm happy to give him all the support and care he needs. He's been home for there days and I have to admit I'm exhausted already it's so draining trying to understand him if he could write it would be great but he's lost that. My firm has said I can do flexible time and if he needs me I can go home. I am worried that I am going to end up going into a massive flare and then how will I cope.
I needed to get this aired and I know what a fantastic community this is.
