i have been diagnosed with fibro back in 2006. I have had it, i dont know how long it seems like for ever. I finally got the dr to get me back on lyrica and cymbalta to help with the pain. I dont tell alot of ppl about this because they think its all in my head. I am not able to talk to my husband about this because he doesnt understand and i don't think he wants to understand. It causes problems with my marriage, my ability to work, and my ability to take care of our son properly. This condition causes depression and sometimes it can be so severe that you just feel like you dont want to get out and do anything or talk to anyone.
I have been going through so much this last 3 months and the stress of all of this has caused the fibro to act up in a manner that i have never dealt with before. there are so many things i want to do and no energy to do it. I feel like such a failure as a mom, wife, and human being. Mostly i feel like i have let myself down. If anyone out there has been through this, any positive feedback would be wonderful. I really need some friends, and i sure could use a hug.
Oh, my husband is in the army and deployed to iraq, has been gone for 8 months now. 3 boys in the military also.
