Hi my name is Amanda im 34 a single mum to 3 boys and im disabled, iv got fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, asthma, thyroid problems, ventricular tachycardia, slipped/ bulging disc with oseo-arthritus im on a cocktail of medication every day which helps but i still get bad days my doctor has put me on antidepressants because im finding it hard to cope with all my illnesses and finding out my middle son has chronic fatigue syndrome aswell he is 16yrs old i see him suffering and i can't do anything to help him.
I went to see my gp yesterday and she has told me i could also have epilepsy iv got to have blood tests and go to a specialists im so scared that i will have this other illness to cope with on top of all my others.
My 10yr old son is a little gem he is brilliant and helps as much as he can i feel guilty because some of the things he does i should be doing his smiles keep me going and his cuddles. I don't get outside help just my 3 son's and my mum and dad. My mum is amazing she does all my ironing to help me i know it upsets her seeing me so ill she cry's when im in pain because she can't get rid of it for me . I think that's what mum's do they worry, feel guilty for not being able to help get rid of the pain but they also love and her hugs help alot. my dad helps with all my bills setting up direct debits and pick up the boys from school if im having a bad day.
It would be nice to chat with anyone
