Hi everyone, well after two sleepless and pain filled nights I caved in and called in sick for work today 😔 Thank goodness I'd made my 6 year olds lunch last night cos getting upright was a mission! GP has put me on 10 days of steroids to 'settle inflammation in the spine'. I told him I've been doing a lot of research recently into FM and natural supports therapies which may help. He was supportive of that and admitted that it's not a disease that most GPs find easy to discuss or treat so he seems quite content to support me with what ever I want to try. Not sure if that's a positive or negative to be honest?!! Thoughts from anyone? 😊 Two more days off work - I've got great managers but I always have this underlying fear I'll lose my job which is part of the reason I push myself so hard and don't let myself rest even when I know I need to.
