i just had enough

i am feeling very down at the moment, i feel like my partner does not understand fibro, he says he does but he dont , as today i got my mobile phone bill in and it should be 15.50 and it was 57pounds, i was shocked as in dec i changed my tarrif so my bill would be cheaper, at the shop they said it was changed so i didnt give it another thought till my bill came in today, all my partner says it will get sorted, yes it prob will but i tried to tell him that we fibro suffers get stressed more easily than most people, we are also moving next tues, so more stressed, i cant do much but i do try its so b****y hard when you constently tird in pain, i have osteoarthritis in my knee too,, oh my god i am sorry for going on, i just need someone to talk to who will understand, i am also very sorry for not replying to any ones blog, i do read them, i just have not got the get up and go to reply, please forgive me, xxx

Hi there, your partner sounds very laid back ,is he going to sort out the phone bill for you? OH never worries and he sorts things... I,ve been with him 20 years I had fibro when I met him and over the years I have slowly come to realise that he is right, and I have learned to relax more, my sons mobile phone came in this week more than £30 more than usual my OH found out what it was before I even knew and my son was running round like a headless chicken panicking ... I also have osteoarthritis and my OH doesn't say anything he just quietly does things he knows I can't do ... He doesn't offer me continual reassurances he is just there, maybe your partner is the same and just does things when they crop up. Don't worry about not replying on here...and try to relax

Hugs VGx


so sorry to hear of your woes. I truly understand. my hubby doesn't understand my aches and pains either. most of my pressure points get very sore and my left hip too. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia many years back and have learnt to live with it. take care.
