Seems like every time I go to the doc I get bad news, I just want to stop going to the doc. I have been told by my doc that I have trimers, ostoarthritus and fibro.  It seems like I can't get a break. And now I have been having trouble with my eyes, I don't even want to talk to the doc about it because I just don't want to know what is wrong. I am finding it harder and harder to work but I don't feel like I can tell my husband about it. I know I can't tell my mom because I should be helping her not her helping me.  I don't know what to do because I am just so tired, I just want to give up but I don't want to give up. I was wandering if anyone can give me some advice on how I need to handle it, and what I can do to get my mood up.     Thanks obrian46

Hi obrian,

I am new here but I understand how you are feeling, I myself am still trying to determine how this Fm will work into my life, I to work, and I enjoy my job, but it is very physical. I would talk to your husband, just having the conversation about you concerns with work, might ease some of your worries, you may feel better about it just knowing he understands the road ahead. As far as your mom goes I have my mother in law living with us, she is 77 and still very independant and still helpful, she loves folding laundry:) which is great because my arms get so tired so fast folding, There are days she makes me feel 100yrs old, but I worry what if I can't care for her when she may need me. I feel for now, I need to find my way through this, and do what I can for me, to manage day by day. I am confident that I have had Fm for 10yrs but now it is getting difficult and it has finally caught up to me. Keep your chin up.....if your work is a concern, maybe you are able to work less hours, or find something new to fit your new way of life.... as for mom, I to am a mom, and moms are always there for their children, maybe let her know how you feel. If she can only offer a hug, that maybe just what you needed. Take care I hope this helped, I am new at this....I have been stumbling around reading the posts and learning alot about all this so I am prepared when I see my new Rhuemy in Dec. take care hun:)

Obrian avoiding talking to your doc about your eye problems is not going to make them go away, it really is best to know what we are fighting.
It takes time to wrap your head around having osteo arthritis and fibro and accept it and figure out how to live your life with them. I finally had to resort to taking a little vicodin for the pain but it has allowed me to do a lot more. I know it's aggravating having fibro but it is not fatal and we can live our lives just different than we use to.
Hi Miss CK and welcome to the family. This is a great forum to learn about fibro and you will go to the doc probably knowing more than he does about fibro. smilewinkgrin
luv and hugs
