I am seventeen and I have been tenatively diagnosed with fibro. I have my first meeting with a rheumatologist today and I finished up my list of preparation research topics with "Look up source of help on the web." I found this site and am hoping to get some advice on some of the general problems I'm having.
Firstly, my sleep schedule is terribly messed up. It's about six in the morning where I am and I still haven't gone to bed. My next issue is the pain. I'm still have several things that I haven't tried yet, but I'm open to suggestions for more stragedies. Finally, I was a really good student, on track for valedvictorian and all that, but now I'm having trouble just passing my classes. I'm currently out of school for a month. I'm in my junior year and college is looking more and more hopeless.
Anything you guys can tell me or advise me about would be appreaciated. Being a teen is really stressful and having this fibro stuff isn't helping at all. Thanks so much!
