Hi everyone, just thought Id "introduce" myself. I left my job in June and my Fibro has been really bad since. Ive been put on ESA and have to regularly send sick notes from my GP. Must say I'm not looking forward to my health assessment whenever that will be. I hurt literally from the top to the bottom of my body, it hurts to drive, walk, sit, lie in bed and am not sleeping properly either. I'm also feeling pretty depressed at the minute and wondered if others feel like me?

Thanks. x

  • Hi mummytrace....Oh yes you are not alone anymore. So glad you posted cos you can get lots of info from the links all about fibro and related conditions.....not only that but they are a nice bunch of people and we do have a giggle over stuff as well. I am sorry you are in so much pain....are you on meds to ease the pain and help you sleep? I know they don't take the pain away but I think they help....Have you spoken with your GP about how you feel..I think you will find some of us are on anti depressant tabs as well...After all it is a pretty depressing condition!! You call yourself that your name or a daughters? Nice name though!!! We also have a Benefits advisor who may help you sort through the complexities of benefits....Take care and I send gentle hugs xx

  • Hi mummytrace,

    I'll join in and welcome you to our forum.

    If you haven't already done so, you might like to look at our mother site, where you will find lots of evidence based information, and lots of other info, including how to contact Janet, our own Benefits Adviser, although she is on holiday just now until early Oct.

    There's pretty much someone around 24/7 on the site, so anything you need to know just ask.

    Take care.

    GP. 😊😊
