Feel isolated and alone with Fibromyalgia/CFS

Dawn1948 - March 2

Can't go anywhere much, or the pain and exhaustion starts. No one seems to understand, even my relatives and the doctors I have been treated by. Get stressed easily by even ordinary life occurrences. Find it very difficult to perform household duties. Brain fog, balance problems, chemical sensitivities, food and pollen allergies severe, sensitive to most medications, can't exercise much, can't concentrate, can't stand much noise, lights, being around people much. Do these symptoms sound familiar to anyone else?

VERY FAMILIAR!! I don't have the sensitivities that you have but the rest is all too familiar. We are going to try moving out of Alaska to The Spokane Washington area in hopes that the climate will give me a better quality of life. I know that when we go to Texas each year I always feel soooooooo much better its like a whole different life. Not saying that I expect all the problems to disappear but even being able to get outside of the cabin more will help (I hope!)If you can find something that makes you feel better emotionally it will help. A hobby that doesn't require abilities you don't have, or a pet help a lot of people. For me its my horse. I cant ride much but just hugging him and letting him lick my hands calms me and helps because it gives me some form of relief. I am also lucky in having a husband who has supported me in every way thru thick and thin for 37 years. Without him I wouldn't be alive today. Try not to expect anyone to truly understand and you wont be disappointed. Strangely I often feel that even other pain sufferers don't understand because I have chosen to take traditional heavy pain meds and that isn't politically correct these days.
