Good morning! I just added myself to the group in hopes to meet other moms facing the same issues as I am. I was diagnosed with fibro n 2006 after i gave birth to my son. I believe the symptoms began before the pregnancy but were really mild. I've been doing everything in my power to maintain work but I've been on the decline in the passed 2 years - especially since a car accident in April 09. I know have arthritis in my hips, spine and sacro joints. Its hard enough for me to walk, sit , stand without numbness and nauseating pain, but since I'm not working, we had significantly drop the hours in our sons preschool program o 4 hours a week!!! My doctors have tried everything - medications are making me VERY tired, forgetful, vacant and moody. Physical therapy only works while I'm in the session. I need help all around. My family DOES NOT seem to understand how bad it is for me from moment to moment. The whole thing is getting me pretty depressed - I try not to show it - but I'm ready to explode from lack of support and answers.
I'm hoping to be able to share some positive feedback with you all, but today....I really need to hear something positive from someone who knows what I'm going through. I'm 30, not working, unable to exercise with any significant attention to loosing weight, and I really don't know where its going from here..... Thanks for reading, if you got this far! Best wishes to all of you!
