I moved home last weekend and have spent the whole
Week trying to get the pain under control and even though
I am so tired the sleep never comes. I then find myself getting uptight
And angry which stops the sleep even more. Leading to the viscous circle
Us people with fibromyalgia find ourselves in. I have stopped my antidepressants
And am going through the horrible side effects of that even though I did it slowly
But I hated how they made me feel. But now I am back to crying at the slightest thing
This is my first blog on here even though I have posted comments .
I have had fybromyalgia for about 20 years now its now part of me!
The one thing I do hate about this is when you go to the drs and they
Put everything down to the fybromyalgia no matter what it is!
I also have osteoarthritis in my hips knees hands and fingers.
I had a knee replacement privately 6 years ago as I was too
Young to have it done on the NHS! It has never been right and drops me
Constantly but I no longer have private care and the same consultant
Will not redo my knee on NHS so I have to suffer.
When a few weeks ago my boyfriends mother had a new knee after waiting a total
Of 4 weeks and she was still able to kneel and get about. She isn't on the medicines
I am on was only taking paracetamol but as she is 75 she gets it done. I just don't get how that is fair. I have to take morphine to get me through a day!
Anyway I was thinking maybe we should start a tag where we could
Put something positive each day. Now I know this is a tough one for many of us
But maybe it would help in some small way. When I was married I visited America
And actually met a couple of people with the same problems but at the time it was
More recognised over there probably still is.
But seeing the storms this week we should be grateful we aren't going through
What some of them are facing presently. So my positive thought for today is that I have a
Roof over my head and don't have to queue for food or gas or power.
Please excuse how this is written I have no Internet until Monday so am using my phone
Take care everyone and be gentle on yourselves
