Pain is all I ever think about!

Hello all, I am new to the community. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia Feb 2017, and osteoarthritis as well, but actually began suffering from the syndrome in 2015. Some days I can accept my fate knowing that what I'm living with won't slowly kill me, but today however, I don't want to live like this anymore. I feel like my body is attaching me and this is a battle that cannot be won. All I want is peace... I just want to not hurt, even if its just for a little while.

With all of that said, I am glad to have found a community with those whom can sympathize with the frustrations of living with fibromyalgia.

Hello and welcome to this knowledgeable friendly forum

I have only been on here for about 4 months, and only recently been diagnosed with fibro, so only at the beginning of the journey myself and still learning

I too am only existing and not living my life as I was and would like to again. I have lost "Me" the happy go lucky energetic person, I hope and pray she comes back again. Also have other auto immune diseases that I am dealing with, like you I would like a wee break from pain.

Also have osteopena in lower back, and arthritis in knees, oh the joys ๐Ÿ˜ข

I try to have my positive head on, and carry on, but frustration and exhaustion get the better of me ๐Ÿ˜ต

Sure someone will pop up and give you more advice and help than I can


Oops sent before I finished lol

Sending you a big hug (((X))),

Have a peaceful and restful Friday



Thank you ssssoooo much for the encouraging words. I am trying to remember that life is a blessing despite the pain(s) of living it. I am sending a hug back (and I promise it'll be pain free๐Ÿ˜Š)!


Good morning and a very warm welcome on this cold snowy start to the day :) I think for many of us we find our health issues and pain increase in the winter months. It can also make us feel low and depressed. It is understandable but sadly we can't change the weather.

Hi and welcome to our friendly forum, hope you are keeping warm, that's the most difficult thing with fibro I think, every day not knowing how you'll feel. I've had osteoarthritis and RA as well as fibro for many years. so know what you're going through, this cold weather doesn't help does it, I think the only thing we can do is live each day as it comes, which is so hard isn't it, but it's the only way and try and pace yourself not to do too much at one time, do you have family and friends around you to help, take care


Mostly, I have a wonderful, loving, and extremely patient husband and three great, caring, and always oncerned kids. My parents and siblings though, while I know they love me, I don't see or talk to then too often. I truly try not to complain, but I have found that fibro and osteoarthritis are not "quiet," so I think I make them uncomfortable because I have tried to explain that I am not seeking attention and suggesting to me that I should just take something for the pain so that I can stop "wincing, grimacing and moaning," is insulting. I have suggested, and even sent 't them literature on all of the conditions I am having to learn to live with, yet based on the hidden or rather unspoken body language my extended family projects to me that I'm a hypochondriac, so I've pretty uch given up on any support from them... still love then tho๐Ÿ™‚.

Thank you for asking, though because my family IS living with this along with me and you've reminded me to say thank you too them for their loving and patient support.

Please have a wonderful day despite the trouble your body may present!
