Hey Bluehope72 like yourself I've been recently fibroised Feb this year, I've only just joined this page and found advice, suggestions and humour among the caring fellow fibromites, I wasn't sure about this page as it was, to me, admitting that I had this condition and my life was never going to be the same again and that made me very angry, resentful and frustrated
I am still greiving for all the abilities that I have lost, but am slowly, very slowly comin to terms with it, my fellow fibromites have helped me to do that. Thru reading the chats among them, has encouraged me to start to concentrate on the more positive aspects in my life. I will always miss what I have lost, no longer being able to drive my motorbike, but maybe I'll be able to manage a trike, 3 wheels instead of 2, not so bad! I can no longer do my embroidary, annoying
but I'm gonna try wood carving
Not being able to continue with my job as a nurse is more difficult, I'm still trying to get used to that one.
I'm use to being the one that looks after other people, not the other way round. I think the key is take one day at a time, continue with this page to not only get info but to keep in contact with others that know what you are going thru, remember you are not alone. To get a idea of how fibro is affecting you, keep a diary of symptons, pain, fatigue, what activity brings on problems, what helps, it is very very confusing to start with
I'm still learning and trying, never stop trying, what works for one doesn't always work for another. I'll stop there as you'll have brain dump before long,
come back soon take care Snoozyowl
