Hi Recently Diagnosed but been coping with it for years

Postby Tammy » Mon May 30, 2011 11:14 am

Hi all,

I have recently been diagnosed but i have had symptoms since the beginning of 2005. I have IBS and chronic tiredness. When the syptoms 1st came out i would have a flare up for 10 days or so and the symptoms would disapear for a few months. Last year the symptoms started again but this time have never gone away and have had to increase my medication. I have recently started yoga as i and determained to live as much of my life as i can as im only 27 and want to have children with my hubby atsome point in the future.

I would love to chat with some people maybe as penpals to have someone to talk to because they understand and i would it would be nice to make some friends.

I'm from South Wales and would love to see where you are all from.

Thanks for reading

Tammy :wave:

Hi and welcome

You'l find most of us have lived with the symptoms for years before getting a diagnosis. I've had fibro since before 2005 but diagnosed 2007 . I have managed to carry on and have worked up until this year when it all went pear shaped. I had to reduce my hours back in 2005 but by doing this managed to carry on working and I had an okish quality of life. Like you I would ahve flare ups that lasted a few weeks then would disappear for a few months.

Most of us are wives and mothers, it can be hard but a supportive partner really helps. So dont despair families are possible.

Unfortuneately I had an accident last year and it had a really bad effect on my fibro. This time the few weeks didnt end and the flare ups are much worse than before. I've given up work now and rest as much as I can .

I think the key is to listen to your body and to rest, rest and rest some more. Don't try to overdo it even if you feel ok and if you need a shoulder to cry on or a sounding board were all here all the time.

:goodluck2:

Good Luck
