I have never written a blog before so I apologise if I am a bit rubbish. I was diagnosed with Fibro 12 years ago and have had to leave my job that I loved and say goodbye to a lot of my independance, which I find very hard to come to terms with. I now walk with a stick when I can walk anywhere, and need help with the stupidest things and I get really angry with myself all the time.While the continuous pain is terrible,one of the things that really infuriates me is the brain fog and the loss of short term memory.I am also having to spend more time in bed due to crippling tiredness and I feel like I am watching my life sail past me all the time. I try to stay positive and have a good sense of humour, but it is great to talk to people who know how I feel.I am desperate to remain mobile because my daughter is going to university in September and I am determined to visit her regularly. It is amazing how will power can keep you going. Long may we keep fighting!
