I suffer with fibromyalgia, and osteo arthritis and irritable bowel syndrome. I started off suffering from Graves disease which was the beginning of my nightmares. Some medical professionals can be cruel with their words and "being knowledgable". I have worked all my life, putting my daughters through private education yet I was a single mum. Now that I am long term ill I find that I am told that I have this "in my mind". How sad this is! This is an illness which takes over one's life and creates havoc at will. I can exchange this for my previous life any time. I have never been kept nor have I failed to look after me and my family in my life. Is it a crime to be ill? I say to all the Fibro sufferes, "Stand your ground, fight your own corner"I never applied for it nor wanted it. I say to anyone suffering with this illness, take care of yourself, we have been called all sorts of names but only we know that we fight every day of our lives to do diferent things. I would like to encourage you all for being so strong and brave. Live your life the way you want and try to help those around you. I have been told that "It is all in your head, if only we can take away all this medication and reduce this drugging of you, just imagine what you could achive. This is simply phantom pain and nothing else." What can be worse than that. I was depressed, cried a lot but I have decided that I am braver than that and I AM AN OVERCOMER AND A WINNER" Chin up
