Update on my situation

Rahiin - December 12

Hello everybody, I just wanted to let you guys know that, after many doctors and health care liasons shuffling their feet and not doing their jobs, I got an appointment with a pain management doctor on the 22nd. I am optimistic that he will be different than the other dozens of doctors I have seen, who have done nothing to help me.

I am still having major problems with my fatigue, insomnia, and concentration levels however. It is severely affecting my schoolwork and performance at work and my final exams are in two weeks. Do not know what to do about those issues, but I say to myself that dealing with one problem at a time is better than not dealing with any at all.

I am having severe trouble doing daily chores and tasks and do not know how to improve myself so I can function, any tips or suggestions on how to deal with the issues would be greatly appreciated. Thanks everybody, take care.

Hi Rahiin - I really don't have any good suggestions for you. I mostly wanted to tell you that you're not alone.
One thing that I've learned that has helped me alot is to not stress over all of these things. You can't control it....so don't try to. If you can't do something, then don't push yourself to do it. Try to deal with what you can and let the rest go. It's really hard to not be able to do the things you used to do (before Fibro) and you have to learn to live WITH this illness and work with it the best way you can.

Hope this helps a little....sorry I don't really have any helpful tips or suggestions. Take Care, Stacey :o)

Thanks Stacey for your reply. You are right, I try not to stress over these things. Its just that school and work are so important to be able to live your life. When they are compromised by medical conditions, you can't help but say "Hey I need some help here, I'm willing to do some heavy-lifting and not be a drama queen with this stuff, but I need to be able to do basic human functions," you know what I mean?
People think I'm always overdramatic when I describe fibro. If only they could experience it, then they would know that what I'm saying is a huge understatement.
