JW - October 9

Is anyone else fed with your life? I am so tired, stressed out and I keep getting worse physically. Why do I keep getting worse and getting more diseases when I already suffer so much? I feel worse everyday and I don't know what to do about it. Now besides fibro, I think I have arthritis and a few other diseases I don't even want to mention. How does everyone cope everyday?


TERESA - October 9

I know what you mean! I not only haveFMS but I have lupus too! I feel like I get everthing coming down the pike too!! That's why I was interested in the answers to the flu post. I think I will get my flu shot tomorrow! BUT if there is a bright side to this, & you are trying to get disablity, the more you have wrong with you the greater your chances! I don't know if Lupus is going to help qualify me but I'm going to look into it!! I have to find some way to cope everyday, because I have to WORK !! Most days I just TRY to ignore my aches & pains and go on, I feel like the turtle "slow and steady wins the race" or I my case finishes the race eventually. This site helps !!! JUST VENT!!! Hope this helps!!!

JW I know how your shoes feel, I don't know about anyone else, but my fibro keeps getting worse and the doctors say it wont? I beg to differ.
I have Hidradenitis Suppurativa also, and it wrecks havoc on my system also.
I'm like you I am fed up too.

I too understand.. I was told a few months ago that I shouldnt progress or feel worse than I did at the time. . well amazingly I do.. I am also fed up.. But I have a little girl who needs me and keeps me moving and motivated, This is hard, because sometimes my worry and pain consumes me, and I constantly search for answers, sometimes I feel guilty for complaining because I know there are people who are suffering with horrible painful diseases and cancers, and I have something that will not kill me.. But its just ALWAYS there.. and as hard as I try to keep a positive attitude, hoping it will help, It often does not.. Im sorry, I guess take comfort in knowing that you are not alone, and like teresa said, keep talking. . we are all here to help each other out !!

You know even though we all have aches and pains it could be alot worse, im sorry that Teresa also has lupus i was tested for that and fortunatly i dont have it, ive had lots of wierd things in my life and im thankfull i dont have lupus....maybe there are people out there that are thankfull they dont have cancer or aids and there are people who can not even feed them selves, it could be alot worse and to keep positive thats the best way to look at it no matter what ailment we have we can also have something worse, if we are in pain than at least we know we are still alive, and the more you worry about the worse your fibro symptoms will get worse becuase even if you dont realize it is putting stress on you. It takes getting used to , i know that one and it took me years to be able to just sit back and relax. i used to be such a neat freak and it was so bad i actually had roomates move out on me becuase i was allways cleaning lol....i thank god that i figured out how to slow down before i got the fibro becuase with two boys and a husband in construction i would go crazy . I know its really tough sometimes but you really need to stay positive and if you need to you need to find a support person, i have this forum and it helps because my husband has no clue about fibro but when i need him hes allways there for me and helps me stay positive.
