Having a chronic condition such as fibromyalgia is a problem for you, especially when you have many other things like mine. It grows and decreases, but it never disappears, at least it doesn’t suit me. At the moment, I must say that it is as serious as ever.
Due to fibromyalgia it has reduced me so much that even my positive attitude suffers. I’m so sick of being sick with fibromyalgia. My only escape is the dream I sleep in, but now the pain of fibromyalgia misrepresents my dreams and now I can’t even escape. I wake up so much that I want to scream just to move. I’m so tired when I wake up and when I go to bed. The relief seems to escape me these days.
Exercise more, that’s what they say. They do not know how difficult it is to do it when each movement makes you want to tan with the pain caused by fibromyalgia. When you walk a certain distance, the spine feels as if it collapses and disintegrates. I do what I can, I walk short distances, I lift my legs in the chair, but it is difficult. I would like others to understand how difficult it is to lose weight. I really try. Without being as active as you want, it is very difficult to do so. I know that my weight, which was taken after getting sick, aggravates it. It also aggravates my self-image, which does not help things. I wish I could lose it and I try hard.
Take your medicine. I do, I promise, as they told me, but it doesn’t help me enough. I miss them and I was lucky not to spend the day on a ball on the ground, so I know they help, but they don’t do enough. There must be something to help me return my life. Depression? Of course, I am fighting depression. When no part of your body doesn’t hurt all the time, you can also be depressed. I think those of us who are working with this are much stronger than people attribute to us.
I can’t even eat without experiencing symptoms. As something, they make me run to the bathroom. There is no aspect of life that fibromyalgia disease or the multitude of coexisting conditions do not touch. You call that, there is a bad effect that goes with that. The symptoms feed each other, and each one worsens the others. I try to stay positive. I know it will happen and I will feel better, but still I will not feel well. I have good luck, but there is still fibromyalgia pain present, depression, stomach problems, etc. However, there are better times when I can do more and enjoy more, but what should I do in the meantime? I am exhausted physically, mentally and emotionally. I am losing hope that good morning arrives and relief is found. I must not allow myself to be like that, I must always believe that there is hope, but for now, it is difficult. I have to keep the idea that this will also happen. I just hope it goes fast.
