Feeling Sad :-(

Never did I think at the age of 45 I would be in constant pain and spending most of my days in bed ! Today I managed to crawl to the toilet My right leg is almost unusable due to another condition but fibro gives me chronic back pain , Weakness in my arms and legs , Painful wrists and almost no grip or strength , I often wonder whats the point ! But I am a single Mum to a 12 year old boy who I love dearly ! Him coming home from school every day to me keeps me going x

Hi your not alone big soft hugs keep your chin up we are hear for you


Hello there Sue, you certainly aren't alone. I am sure many of us can relate to all you say. Our lives are radically changed by having Fibro, things can become very difficult and yet we plod on because we have to, because we have children. Thank goodness for them!

Have you spoken to your GP recently about whether your meds are helping you sufficiently?! Sometimes we all need a meds review to see if our meds are helping us the best they can. When our Fibro evolves and changes, sometimes our meds need tweaking, the doses altering or even changing altogether. It might be worth you popping along to mention this, update your GP on all your symptoms, tell them you're struggling at the moment and finding it all very difficult. Hopefully something can be done about this for you.

Wishing you all the best, we are here for you and we do care. If there is anything we can do to help or support you, please let us know. Always happy to help where we can.

Take care. (((hug))) xxx
