:mrgreen: Hiya everyone,

My name is Alyssa but like to be called Lyssie... I am 23 years old and was diagnosed with Scoliosis aged 10. To cut a very long story short I am mainly in chronic pain and have been for a few years now. I'm on a lot of pain medication. I have recently been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia as I have widespread chronic pain (back, legs and feet mainly) along with fatigue and unable to sleep (am on a sedating antidepressant). I have bladder problems where I am unable to empty fully so I self catheterise (ISC - Intermittent Self Catheterisation) I have 3 metal rods attached to my spine from 2 previous spinal fusion ops. I am due to have the posterior hardware out on the 22nd of *this* month eeek! :yikes: My pain Dr's are really lovely so I am very lucky to have a good support network. I am also seeing a health psychologist for some therapy.

I am glad to have found this forum and would like to get to know other people with Fibromyalgia :grouphug:

I hope that's okay :oops:

Thank you for reading and lots of love x x x

The op for you to have the metalwork out sounds :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: On the 22nd, you'll probably have a few more people send some good vibes for the op and hoping you have a quick recovery now that you've joined us :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed:

Wow, :mrgreen:

Thank you both so much for the lovely warm welcome! :hugs:

Just wondering if anyone else finds that when in so much pain- time just drags and I am ashamed to say it but It's like I'm living off the next dose of painkillers :cry: I often feel like a robot who just automatically takes tablets. So sorry to moan so much!! :oops: Anyway I am glad to have found you all :clap:

I am based in Guildford so wondering if anyone else is too?? xx

Lyssie, there was a Google Maps linky saying "I am here" on your post. I've removed it, thinking it might show your home address when clicked on.

It might be an idea to see if you have accepted anything from Google Maps that hows your location and unsubscribe from it so you don't get any strange, unwanted attention.
