Yet another newbie....

Postby happyshopper64 » Sun Mar 27, 2011 10:43 pm

Hello there, I have recently been diagnosed with fibromyalgia - I have ahd symtoms for about 6 years noe, getting worse and worse. I was dx with breast cancer 7 years ago, went through a reconstruction surgery with implants, and after that I started to feel unwell. Who knows?! I have pain and tiredness all the time, most of the time this is manageable, but then I seem to have spells where this is really bad, painful, exhausted - I could just lay down and go to sleep anywhere sometimes!
I am finding it a struggle working - had to change from shift work to working until 1400 hrs - but by about 5.30 p.m, I'm absolutely done for. Also, I have the memory and concentration span of a daffodil most of the time.
Any advice would be gratefully recieved!! XX
