My doc told me I'm suffering with fibromyalgia and said it's nothing more than an annoyance like a common cold!! I can't walk very far as hips and back are unbearable let alone the 4 flights of stairs that I have to climb to get to our flat (we haven't got a lift).
He said I need so excersise and said walking is good I said it was too painfull to walk so he said use a bike!!
I'm a single parent with 3 kids and I'm not sure how much more I can take. My kids have become my carer's (helping me get dressed, putting shoes on and taking them off, carrying things for me down to making me a cup of tea as kettle is too heavy even with just enough water for one cup.
I have to sign on tomorrow and just can't face the pain. The last 3 weeks I've slept for about 20hrs a day as was just exhausted and couldn't keep my eyes open. Not sure I would have held down a job if I'd been working.
Any advice or help would be greatfully recieved. Thank you. xxx
