I woke up this morning to so much pain that I couldn't move. I'm in a severe flare because I am worrying about my wee g/daughter as she is in hospital. They don't know what is wrong with her and the last I heard, they were testing her for meningitis. Poor wee soul doesn't need this. Please, if you are a praying sort of person, pray for her recovery.

So today I had to be helped to dress, couldn't even hold a cup and had to be helped to the bathroom. For me, who is a fiercely independent person this has humbled me beyond words. I do not want my life to be like this. I feel like a burden on my partner, who, God bless him, helped me without a mummer of protest. But I do not think that I can carry on like this, so I hope this flare passes very quickly. I also have numbness all down my right leg which I am putting down to FM. It is not painful atm, but it feels very very weird. Does anyone else have this? All I can say is thank the gods for wheelchairs!

  • Thank you folks. They gave Miya a Lumber Puncture last night, apparently there is 'something growing in her blood', whatever that means. She is clear for meningitis but atm no-one is sure what is going on. I will keep you all posted as to what is happening. Thank you all, again.

  • Hope you are feeling a bit better now.

    My prayers are with you both hope Miya is getting better and stronger.

    Gentle Hugs

  • yes i will say a prayer too, no-one likes their grandchildren ill, i hope she gets well really soon, and you feel better too , soft hugs

  • It turns out that Miya has a urine infection which caused an infection in her blood. She is on 2 types of antibiotics and has to stay in hospital for 3 weeks. Thank God that her mummy moved quickly on this as it could have been much much worse! Thank you all again for the good wishes and prayers. Now, if only my flare would back off! :)
