Having a chronic condition like fibromyalgia is a problem for you, especially when you have many other things like mine. It grows and diminishes, but it never disappears, at least it does not suit me. For the moment, I must say that it is as serious as ever.
Because of fibromyalgia has reduced me so much that even my positive attitude suffers. I’m so sick of being sick with fibromyalgia. My only escape is the dream that I sleep, but now the pain of fibromyalgia is misrepresenting my dreams and now I can not even escape. I wake up so bad that I want to scream just to move. I’m so tired when I get up and when I went to bed. The relief seems to escape me these days.
Get more exercise, that’s what they say. They do not know how difficult it is to do when each movement makes you want to tan with the pain caused by fibromyalgia. When you walk a certain distance, the spine feels as if it collapses and disintegrates. I do what I can, I walk short distances, I raise my legs in the chair, but it is difficult. I would like others to understand how difficult it is to lose weight. I really try. Without being as active as you want, it is very difficult to do. I know that my weight, which was taken after getting sick, aggravates it. It also aggravates my self-image, which does not help things. I wish I could lose it and I try hard.
Take your medicine. I do it, I promise, as they told me, but it does not help me enough. I miss them and I was lucky not to spend the day in a ball on the ground, so I know they help, but they do not do enough. There must be something to help me return my life. Depression? Of course, I’m fighting depression. When no part of your body does not hurt all the time, you may also be depressed. I think that those of us who are working with this are much stronger than people attribute to us.
I can not even eat without experiencing symptoms. I eat something, make me run to the bathroom. There is not one aspect of life that the Fibromyalgia Disease or the multitude of coexisting conditions do not touch. You call that, there is a bad effect that goes with it. The symptoms feed on each other, and each one worsens the others. I try to stay positive. I know it will happen and I will feel better, but even then I will not feel well. I have my good luck, but there is still fibromyalgia pain present, depression, stomach problems, etc. However, there are better times when I can do more and enjoy more, but what should I do in the meantime? I am exhausted physically, mentally and emotionally. I am losing hope that good days will come and relief will be found. I must not let myself be this way, I must always believe that there is hope, but for now, it is difficult. I have to keep the idea that this will also happen. I just hope it goes fast.
