Stacey1980 - December 30

Hello, I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Stacey and I too was just recently diagnosed with fibro. (about 2 weeks ago). I am 30 years old and have one beautiful daughter (5 years old). I have been married for 7 years to whom I believe is the most wonderful man I have ever met! He has been very supportive and very helpful during this last year! I have been to a handful of doctors if not more! I started having severe pain in my lower back in early 2010. My x-rays amd MRI's showed a couple buldging discs and arthritis. I have tried everything and I just seem to be getting worse. I have seen my PCP, Orthopedic Surgeon, Chiropractor, Physiotherapist/Pain Management, Psychiatrist, and will be seeing a Rheumatologist next week! It has been a very long and painful year! I have struggled with anxiety and depression since I was 15 years old! As you all know pain doesn't make the depression any better! I actually spent a week in a mental health hospital in August. Not fun! My husband tries his best to understand my pain, both physical and mental! But as you all know, if you have not experienced it you don't really get it! There are many times that I feel my family would be so much better off if I wasn't around! If they didn't have to deal with my sadness and pain things would we so much better off! There are days I cannot get out of bed on my own! As embarrassing as it is, it is also hard for me to wash certain parts of my body! This is not the way I imagined my 30's! I am so grateful that I found this message board and I look forward to getting to know you all. As well as talking to people who understand how I am feeling!! Hope you all are having one of those rare "good days"! [3
