Fed up, Frustrated and Alone!

Hi all, I'm new to this site but have been reading everyones blogs and it has helped me through the last few weeks for which I am very Thankfull to you all : D

I have 8 health issues as well as Fibro and over the last 18mths of fighting the Benefit system and trying to find the right congcoction of medication,sitting/ sleeping positions,becomming practically bed-bound and recieving an ever-increasing supply of equipment - for which I am gratefully recieveing - and working through frustration from my family and wonderfull hubby who has been on the receiving end of my mood swings and careing for me while having to undergo 5 operations of his own over the last 3 yrs.

I don't feel so alone with this Fibro now. All the side effects hat make you think you're going insane or doctors shaking their head as though not believing you!

I have to tackle my Doctor - who is actualy very nice and now understands me -

about the swelling of my face and the burning of my ears, throat and face now that I have read of some of you who are experiancing the same I know I dont just have to except this and there may be some more help for this.

The other thing we need now is fora new home to become available that I can then have an electric wheelchair in or outside so when I am feeling a bit better to take advantage and get outside because right now hubby cant push me in my manual wheelchair.

So Thank you EVERYONE! poppy xx
