Hello from ShooShoo

Postby ShooShoo » Mon Sep 06, 2010 9:52 pm

Hello, my name is Rita and I was recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia after becoming progressively more ill for the past several years. So I am new to the diagnosis, but not new to the symptoms.

I am 59 years old, divorced, have one grown son, and 3 1/3 beautiful grandbabies. I work full time, although I am off quite a bit. And spend the rest of my time recuperating to return to work the next day. My home looks like a cyclone went through it... twice.

My friend, Sadie, was diagnosed the same week that I was and she is a member of this group. She pointed me here after I told her I was not having much luck finding an active, positive support group here in the USA yet. So, hello from Texas. Yeehaw! :blowkiss:

I enjoy the computer, watching old movies, crocheting, reading, and spending money that I don't have. Due to the limitations caused by FM, I currently spend most free time playing games on Facebook while listening to the television keeping me company.

I live alone, am my sole support, and am very happy to finally have a diagnosis for all the dozens of unrelated symptoms and problems that have been stacking up on me for the past several years. I thought I was a hypochondriac and I think all that know me feel that way, even though some know how my health has deteriorated. After all, I don't look sick. :(

I have widespread pain, altered vision, walk into walls, have impaired cognitive functioning (ie: trouble communicating effectively, forgetting words or using wrong words, forgetful), impaired sleep, hypersensitive to chemical smells and medications, grind my teeth, impaired digestive functioning, deep chest pain, and on and on. <blah blah blah>

My physician, an internist, started me on Cymbalta - but I had a severe and unpleasant reaction. So, I am only using medication for the pain until my next appointment in October. Those meds include Tramadol, Darvocet, and Flexaril. Only the Flexaril seems to give any relief and I can't take it and go to work. So it is a bedtime only med.
'
Please excuse me if this is rambling, in absurd order, or nonsensical -- I'm sure you'll understand. But mostly I am happy to be here, thanks to Sadie.

Hi Rita,

It must help having your friend Sadie to talk to? Trouble with me is my friends try and understand, but I swear most people think i'm a hypocondriac as I'm ALWAYS complaining of either pain, headache or bowel problems etc and really its about part of the same thing!!
