Thought i would say hi

Postby barbara1972 » Sun Sep 11, 2011 1:49 am

Hi my name is barbara i am 39 years old and have been living with fibro for about 7 years.

My fibro is one thing that is just added to a very long line of medical problems i have had or still have over the years.

I have underactive thyroid have had for nearly 20 years.
I have Scoliosis of the spine have had for 25 years since diagnosis.
I had epilepsy from the age of 10 till 14 short spell they put down to head injury.

I have glue year had 13 ops in 18 years now got two Perforated eardrum and have to wear hearing aids.
I also suffered a lose of my daughter soon after birth 11 years ago. (placenta abrasion) at 26 weeks. Charlee-ann died 5 days after birth.
I suffered bell's palsy xmas day the same year 6 weeks after her death.
I have hpv none cancerious and had two treatments in the last year.

I have been involved in three car accidents in lest than ten years.

I am a fibro sufferer and no wonder my body and brain has had its far deal of trauma.

When i was first diagnosised with this i sat down to it let it take me and my life over couldn't do anything to stop it.

The biggest thing in my life is deporession had it since the head injury at the age of ten been on 7 different anti-ds in ten years. Now i am on mirtazapinebest one i have ever found. My life is now my own i am fighting everyday to sty fit and healthy even on my worse days i no longer sit down to it. I have suffered pain and mobility problems all my life. I now run a charity for the disabled. It is often refreshing to see others who suffer survive and have a life and it lets me see everyday that there are people out there who do suffer far worse things in life than pain and fatigue. The way i bet my fatigue is through getting up and moving about getting out in the fresh air and gentle exersise. Swimming go find a pool with heated water it will do you wonders. hydrotherapy ask your doctor for it.

I am a sufferer but i will not suffer. I fight each and everyday with the demons within my life i will not be beaten.

:welcome: to the forum barbera :wave: :wave:

With it being a while since you joined the forum, hopefully you'll know how much info and support there is on here.

You've certainly been thru the mill with trauma and physical things :facepalm: :facepalm: Have you managed to get the epilepsy under control with meds or has it just gone dormant??

It sounds like you have a really positive, proactive approach to managing your FM, hopefully you'll have some suggestions that might help some of us on here :wave: :wave:

Sounds like you've got a decent GP treating you, which makes a huge difference :) :) I like your analogy of fighting the demons in your life, I often think of mine as some sort of malevolent force that is trying to take control, it can be difficult at times tho can't it, keeping it under control :facepalm: :facepalm:
