I am 42. I live with Fibromyalgia, severe mental health issues, and was recently diagnosed with functional movement disorder. I need support. Right now, I feel alone and scared. All of this is so overwhelming. I have been getting stress headaches every day for a week. The stress only makes the movements worse. I will be hospitalized in the near future to learn how to cope with my recent diagnosis.
I tried to reach out to my church and no one will return my calls. This makes me feel sad and hurt. I am crying a lot. I might have to switch churches if I don't get any support. I love my church right now. I met some good friends. But the pastor hasn't gotten in touch with me. I left three messages.
I have been on disability since 2004. If anyone has questions about disability, please feel free to ask. It is not an easy process. I might be able to help.
I am in counseling and will go through a mental health program starting Sept. 11, 2017. That should help a lot. The program is three days a week (Mon. Wed. Friday) from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM.
I am struggling with finding transportation. I cannot drive due to the movements. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I look forward to getting to know everyone.
