Living with Fibromyalgia..

How Depressing
I have been living with fibromyalgiafor the last 10 years..wasn’t diagnosed for the first 4 years. It’s one of those medical situations where it’s not considered a disease or recognized by all medical field. For the first 4 years I went back and forth from emergency rooms to doctor appointments to be told that there’s nothing wrong with me. I have even been on a cane not able to use my leg and still told it was all in my head, Once I was diagnosed at Methodist Hospital in Brooklyn, NY I felt a sense of relief..”Im not crazy or a hypercondriac”. The doctor explained that it is a hard illness to diagnose and that it does exsist, fibromyalgia attacks 12 different points of the body

12 points of attack
12 points of attack

When these attacks accur it is one of the most painful and depressing things I have ever had to deal with. It interferes with my sleep, activities and spirit.

  1. I have Fibromyalgia,I was told this this year and just have come to the point in my life that I can somewhat talk about it. I thought that blogging would help me deal.I had no idea so many others are suffering from this as well. I’m new with blogging and I hope to meet many who can understand what I am going through.

    1. I agree blogging is very useful and helpful to those of us who are suffering from anything to be able to write it down and send to someone else is always helpful. I see it’s been a long time since you left this comment just curious to see how everything is going for you in your new endeavor as well as situation. As I finish this reply I will check your blog and leave a comment. Keep your head up.
