Welcome back. Although I am new to the forum I am not new to fibro. I had been dealing with it on my own for so long. Family and friends try to understand but they can't possibly know how it feels!!!! There is no explaination, description, symptom that makes any sense. It has been frustrating and sad and lonely at times.
I have found a lot of great posts here and it has ben wonderful. Symptoms that I'd been having that I didn't even know how to tell the doctor about because I thought "this is crazy, I just need to get tougher." My husband says I need more exercise which I know I do but how can I exercise when I can't even hardly move????
Well I know I'm not alone anymore and neither are you. I love the closings on a lot of the posts and will steal it now for you.
Sending gentle hugs....
I think reality hit you LittleMissSunshine- and it is not easy at first to come to terms with. On occasion it is still surreal that this has happened to me. It's hard to let go of the old us. The good part of getting a diagnosis is that you "know" what is going on with your body and that it is not anything terminal or another disease that could be worse. Now it is time to grieve and then get on with your life and living again.
We are all here for you!
