Quick question. At work today someone asked why I was going part time. When I mentioned I have Fibro and have paid they said Fibro is not that serious, it's part of ageing and not anywhere near as painful as other conditions? I wished I could have given them my pain for a week just to feel what it's like.
Unfortunately for over 10 years I had a GP that didn't believe that Fibro existed. Then I changed GP's and got referred to the hospital where Fibro was confirmed. I have struggled now for over 12 years to go to work full time. I'm now 60 and lucky enough to have a deferred pension that I can take which is allowing me to go part time. But I have had so many times when I've been in absolute agony struggling to go to work that I crash at the weekends and can't do anything.
