- DX FIBRO
Hello everyone. This is my first time posting in this forum. I really need to talk to people who understand chronic pain. I feel so alone. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and CFS about a year and a half ago. It has completely rocked my world! I am no longer the same person. The transformation was swift and still has me reeling. I was a very athletic person who always had a strong capable body. The only pain I ever had was brought on by over training. Now I am a shell of my former self. I also developed a bad case of Plantar Faciitis not too long after the Fibromyalgia. I deal with so much pain and lose the ability to even walk some days...like today. I’m having a flare up of both my Fibro and my PF now and have been in so much pain and unable to walk for 2 days after coming back from camping for a couple of days. I am so depressed and don’t know how to live my life anymore. Im unable to work and unable to get disability so we are struggling financially. I think the stress of that makes my fibromyalgia worse. I don’t know how to enjoy life anymore. How do I live with this condition? I’ve begun using marijuana to help with the pain and unhappiness of life but their is still only so much this amazing herb can do and besides I cant just stay high the rest of my life. I have a family who now has to take care of me and wait on me so much and I HATE that. I feel so useless and invaluable to them like this. I’m just helplessly hoping something changes and my life gets better.
