Hello Tomthumb

Sorry to hear of all your pain and suffering and everything you are going through at the moment.

There is a Fibromyalgia Benefits helpline. It's not Freephone, it's normal rates. I think it is open 10 till 12 on Friday mornings. If you phone before then and leave your number on the answermachine, I think they call you back. I will look it up and put it on here.

Also there is a Fibromyalgia community forum on this site you can join as well as this one. So, if you wish, you could put this post on there as well.

Are you taking any medications for your pain or conditions?

Have you got a severe migraine now?

The Fibromyalgia Benefits Helpline is closed now until 10am Monday 8 January (according to their website)

Number 0300 999 0055

You could try phoning the Fibromyalgia Association National Helpline tomorrow. That close at 4pm on Friday 22 Dec and opens Wednesday 3 January.

Number 0300 999 333

How are you feeling now?

Hi again Tom

When did you last see your GP?

Could you call them out tomorrow or go and ask to see them?

Have you phoned MIND or anyone today to ask for help?

URGENT

Tom

Please phone the doctor now or 999. It sounds to me like you need to see a doctor.

I looked up Popofol. I think you need urgent medical help.

I think it's the new drug - the Propofol - that is causing this confusion.

How long have you been taking it for?

Could you phone one of your kids and tell them you are ill?

I only just read this.

I just replied below because I only just got notification that you 'liked'.

I did not get ANY notification of THIS reply from you from 4 days ago. Sorry.

So how did it go at the George Elliott pain clinic?

Will Dr Subrarmo and his team be helping you?

Were you given some new medication? I ask because you sound more confused now than you were 4 days ago.

Hope you are feeling better today. xx🐥

Hi Tom. It is good to hear from you.

Now you have flu bug on top of everything else. Are you able to keep warm and eat well. I had flu just before Christmas, better now.

I know what you mean about the way they make you feel, forms, ESA, tribunals - very intimidating. All too much. Very stressful.

There is no shame in being ill.

It is the system that is an outrageous disgrace - for the way it treats people.

You are unwell - you haven't done anything wrong.

You have been through a lot.

Just hang on in there and keep in touch.

Can you see a GP on Monday morning or the practice manager? Ask if they can contact someone who can help? Are they any good in your GP practice?

Did you phone Tamworth Changes?

Also, I don't know if you know this, but the Tribunals are not part of the DWP. They're an independent body, and they're pretty pissed at the DWP. 68% of PIP appeals were decided for the claimant in the last quarter....

I have been diagnosed with migraines and fibromyalgia as well as depression myself. Its quite a battle to feel better, but you can do it if you set your mind to it. Personally, I'm trying to change my diet and get off of as many prescription meds as possible. Stretching my body with chair yoga and tai chi 2 x week really helps. It's quite a journey, but 1 worth taking. Best of Luck to ya

Don't worry about other people ridiculing. That has happened to me. They are not worth worrying about.

You have lots of things going on at the moment.

When this happens to me I try to make a list of things. And try not to worry. We can only do one thing at a time.

Hi the best advise I can give you is to visit your local Citizen Advise they helped me a lot with sorting out my debt which my husband left me when we parted they are full of very good advise they also helped me sort my ESA although I am now disputing it and it looks like I will have to go to a tribunal but I will seek their advise before or if that happens I hope this helps you x

Hi Tom

How are you feeling today?

It IS hard accepting all these things that happen to us.

We just carry on and then we get exhausted and something else comes along - and it's all too much.

Sometimes I think we need to get some rest.

Then take things one at a time.

Making a list and putting the most urgent " things to do" at the top.

I'm not sure what is happening with the eviction? Is it really happening or has it been mentioned as something that might happen?

I will look up Tamworth MIND phone number and put in another reply.

Take care Tom.

Please keep in touch.

Hi Tom

It's good to hear from you. Don't be concerned about not being able to express yourself. I too, have had struggles. Doesn't matter if it comes out wrong - as long as you keep in touch.

Are you still at home.

Are you OK.

Did you get any help from Tamworth MIND or anyone.

Keep in touch.

God Bless

Love Mary x
