Advice Please, since 2009 I was told I had Fibro.....ouch... also diagnosed wth diabetes and neuropathy, I have since cut down my hrs at work due to bad pain, general fatigue and awful forgetfulness, not to mention very bad nausea/ vomitting and depression which when I did complain to my GP she one day told me I was just stressed and needed to exercise or do more walking. I have two children, a 7 yr old who was born prematurely diagnosed with mild scoliosis in the neck and has beeen referred by the orthopaedics for physio, she also has speech and language delays and has no stoppped receiving much needed SALT at her school because of NHS cuts.......arrggggghhhh!! Im so forgetful and in constant pain that I forget appointments and have not been able to take her to her hospital apppointments and this I feel really horrid about.
My 17 yr old daughter has helped me since 2009 when I began having the flare up and now she has just been diagnosed with depresson and anxiety and has been put on antidepressants, I feel worse as I think it was too much for her to cope with as she was only 15 at the time. I need some help as its just us three, my eldest still tries to help me alot but I know its so much for her at the moment...... but hey its her LOVE for her mom.... I try to not ask for too much though. I applied for some help from DLA but was turned down last year, right now its my last lifeline, I really need some advice on what to do, just a little help will make a difference. I dont want to stop work but sometims it feels like I will need to reconsider my hrs (currently doing 33 hrs p/w). Still loving being there for others and the kids. Comments welcome.
