My mum has Fibro

Postby Buggles2012 » Thu Sep 08, 2011 9:25 am

My mum was diagnosed with Fibro earlier this year. She had a fall at work which we believe is what has brought out the symptoms (sorry, I don't know if she will have been born with it or whether it is something that develops due to an injury)

She is such a strong woman, takes whatever life throws at her. I know she is in constant pain, she doesn't want to live this way (who does!). Working the 3 days a week that she does (18 hours) is hard work for her. She gets 4 days off together, just to recover from the 3 days she does do.

I'm just so sad for her, that she is in so much pain. I want to be able to cure her, but I know I never will. The thought of her living the next 25-40 years in pain is terrifying for me and her.

:welcome: to the forum Buggles :wave:

Sorry to hear about your mum having FM :? :?

The fall she had at work could have been the trigger for FM, altho finding out the exact cause or if it's something we're born with is still unknown despite research :( :(

What you've said about her being strong and taking whatever life threw at her is one of the things a lot of us share. It's as if it picks us out and sneaks up on us as we're so busy with other things in life :facepalm: :facepalm:

It is upsetting when you see someone so close to you reduced to a shadow after them being so strong :hugs: :hugs: Just as it's upsetting and frustrating that there isn't a cure and that your mum could be, as you've already said, in pain for a long time to come :facepalm: :facepalm:

Now you've found us, I hope there is some useful info and advice on here that could help your mum. Maybe getting her to have a look thru things on here with you could be helpful, and you can always ask about anything either of you want to know about, I can't guarantee we won't come up with a :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: answer, but we will try and help you with it :clap: :clap: :clap:
