This is a perfectly natural response you have been hit so badly , first with fibro diagnosis and thex to have a third miscarriage you are grieving for the loss of the old you and for the loss of your longed for child..... I was diagnosed with fibro at 25 ... Yes it was a shock and I thought why me.... I was fit I was sporty......

I know you want children most of us do... But as you are so weak and suffering with fibro right now maybe your body just can't cope with anything else at the moment.... have you been to see your GP and explained and shown him what pain you are in ... I have to state of course I have no medical knowledge and this is purely my point of view .. But I would try and get your fibro under control with meds that suit you best and then when you are stronger physically and mentally.... You need time to grieve for both events..... Then try for a baby. I Had always thought I would have children in my twenties... But having to come to terms with fibro and then get it under control I had my son when I was 32. Also your GP could recommend councelling.. A lot of us have had councelling to come to terms with what has happened to us and having miscarriages as well , maybe talking it over in councelling would be of benefit to you... It's nothing to be ashamed of... We need all the help we can get...

Fingers crossed and hoping you get some help soon... please keep posting on here and let us know how of are feeling

Hi there my love, I think these are very wise words from VG. You have to allow yourself, give yourself permission, if you like, to go through the very natural grieving time, (your OH too)

You are also grieving the loss of a lifstyle.

You then will need to accept your new lifestyle

You are alternatively abled!!!!!!!!!!!!

Once you can begin to know which meds work and which don't, how to pace yourself, how to accept and become mindful you will become calmer and find that with baby steps you can find little shining pockets of loveliness in your life. (they are there but hiding right now till you are ready)



thank you so much guys x i will try anything i am so desperate i have changed my diet and will change most things to get more like the old me x
