- DX FIBRO
Hi everyone. I am new to the group, please be gentle with me! I have had Fibro and CFS for many years after picking up a nasty virus on holiday abroad. I have had a rather stressful life, having been raised by an abusive narcissistic mother and suffering well into adulthood. We all know how stress plays an important factor with fibro. I believe the death of my dad, my children’s father and a family suicide have all played major parts in my flare ups and pain. An enormous amount of work stress this year has resulted in a very painful year and I am currently suffering big time. I take topamax, amitriptyline and cocodamol when the pain is bad. I work four days a week and am a single mum of four grown up children with two beautiful granddaughters. I don’t really have any ‘support’ as such as no one really understands what I go through.
