Hello everyone! Just wanted to post a quickie to say a BIG THANK YOU to you all for such a warm welcome to the forum and for all your advice and kind words, it really does mean the world to me! :-D :-D :-D :-D
I'm due to have another appointment with my consultant at some point (they're sending it through the post) and will also book an appointment with my GP to talk things through a bit more with him. :fingerscrossed:
I don't remember much about my appointment with the consultant on Friday last week as was so anxious and nervous about it, but I do remember he said something about getting me onto a course to help with pain management, etc and also something about getting an occupational therapist and some physio, although I don't know much more than that, sadly.
Hopefully things will start falling into place soon. I hope so.
Must admit, my friends have been brilliant with me this weekend and very supportive. I told my mum earlier that I had been diagnosed with Fibro and she wasn't really bothered about it. :( :( She was more worried about losing her sympathy within the family and all the attention she receives, even though she has it herself! :swear1: :shooting: :face-slap: :facepalm: :nono: :-x Didn't expect any compassion or anything from her anyway, to be honest, but it still hurts that she can't be more supportive! :( Ah, well, her loss not mine.
Am feeling a bit grim today, :sleep: :sick: it feels like a combination of doing 10 rounds with Mike Tyson, being a zombie and being drunk all at the same time, even though I haven't had a drink in ages. :wine: :wine: (I dare not with all the meds I'm on!) :needhug:
Anyway, I hope you're all having a good day in spite of the symptoms, etc. :-) Many thanks again for all the info, advice and the warm welcome. :-D :-D It's nice to be able to feel like I'm not going :crazy: :crazy: :crazy: for a change!
Sending you all lots of love and big gentle hugs. :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: :blowkiss:
xxxx :-)

I got paid off last June when it was apparent I was incapable of doing my job, by that point I couldn't do very much at all. I felt if someone had punched me in the guts, it hurt.
Four days later I lost my dad, the colour was now out the world, to be honest I don't even know what world I was on, it's all a blur.
To get to the point, I felt immense overwhelming loss. I missed my dad but I felt if I had buried my old self too.

So just want to say thank you for this thread as I now know that I wasn't going crazy and I think I've realised I might be coming to terms with how much my life and I have changed.
I even think I can see some colour coming back into the world.

For me, it's taken me a long while to accept that I'm in pain 24/7 and to accept that there are things I struggle to do every day and impact it has on my emotional health.
it took two hours of non-stop crying to realise the other day that I couldn't take my jeans off because of the pain. I had to wait till the flare had passed and then I could so I get into bed. I felt like an utter fool, embarrassed even there was only me in the house and I was angry with myself because I'm a 31-year-old woman, I have undressing/dressing myself for 30 years and now in 2018, I'm struggling to get pyjamas on and gather enough energy to lift the kettle up to make cup of tea.
why can't my body just behave for gods sake?
