Hello everyone! I'm new here to Circle of Moms and I'm loving it already. I guess misery loves company sometimes. I'm 35 and I have two children, ages 6 & 4. Thank our God above that I have a wonderful husband who helps me get through the really bad flares.
Right now I'm doing pretty good, I just had spinal injections performed last week and they kicked in almost immediately. I'm not pain free by any means, just free of the lower back pain. I don't know about you, but when I get free of pain in one location, another location pops its ugly head up and says, "hey, pay attention to me now!"
Does anyone else suffer with extreme guilt? Well, other than what us ladies carry most of the time anyway? I work full time and by the time I get home I'm totally exhausted. There are some nights when I go straight to bed. I feel soooo guilty about it too....like I'm a horrible mother who doesn't get to run and play with my kids. I just wonder how others deal with guilt??
I look forward to your responses from those of us that know Fibromyalgia is NOT in our heads. (If it were, I would take an aspirin!)
