Welcome jayey and you are truly not alone. It is hard dealing with our illness’s but please chat night or day there will always be someone to help or listen. I too am like yourself but I’m not letting this beat me I’ve been unwell for many years now and am 40 this year but I think support help understanding from those who also have similar experiences is a key in helping with the conditions we have. So welcome and nice to meet you and you are no longer needing to feel alone. Gentle hugs 🤗 xx

Hi sweetie no you are not alone , most of us on here have multiple illnesses to cope with . My hub works long hours my friends work so I spend a lot of time alone so I know how you feel. It’s worst when things are really bad and you feel really ill. I think anxiety must be horrible and depression is still so misunderstood you will be ok on here we are all loving supportive people . I forgot to say welcome welcome xx🤗🤗😇

Morning Jayey,

You’ll find plenty of people to chat to on this website. It has been a saviour to me in many ways and provided me with an outlet for the thoughts I struggle with when I get low or have a bad day.

Everybody here is so supportive and you will always have someone reply to you who understands and wants to be there for you.

We’re all in this crappy journey together.

If you ever want to have a chat, I’m only a message away 💕

Hi jayey

A warm welcome to the FMA UK community 😀 .... There's always someone around to chat with, so hopefully that will help you to feel less alone and isolated while your husband is at work. Xxx

I have things very similar to you besides Fibro, like chronic fatigue which could be due to Epstein Barr, a virus that can be dormant but mine is active. Being 74 I tend to blame everything on age but have had social anxiety and depression since age 12 but marrying my wonderful hubby at 18, and having our babies gave me joy, along with pain but when that tended to stick around in my 40's I got suspicious and foundt out about Fibro. Chiropractor wasn't much help but massages were great plus the ultrasound therapy. It just doesn't last tho. My Dr. dx me with depression..we tried several meds., .then Fibro so I've been on Cymbalta for years and Norco for pain. I take Dexilant for Gerd and one of them caused raising of blood sugar so I take another med for that. Xanax helps for anxiety but I only take it at night, or Ambien for sleep. Then there's carpal tunnel that causes intense tingling, numbness and itching in hands and feet. maybe caused by small nerve irritation. I get blood spots under the skin on hands and wrists from scratching. Going out isn't easy anymore either. I Just don't feel I fit in anymore. It's just one thing ir another, isn't it. Also my hubby has Parkinsons so we go to his support group once a mo. I used to be so busy with kids and grandkids. Welcome here and I hope it helps.
