    Just one more issue to deal with

    In addition to chronic pain in neck, back, hip and shoulder, asthma, arthritis, severe anxiety , now I get to add eczema to the list. Not severe in that it comes and goes. But bad allergy season so far and it's making this flare up. Skin gets red and hot areas that then start to itch uncontrollably, and if i scratch, it gets way worse. If I don't scratch I practically lose my marbles! So here I am at 3;45 am wanting to scratch my skin off my body and wantng to scream from neck pain, generally miserable.

    No real question or anything. Just venting and letting others with these issues know that they're not the only one! Hang in there. I'll try to! #Anxiety , #Arthritis , #chronic pain, #Asthma , #Eczema , #Insomnia

    TODAY I TOOK A BAD FALL

    Today I took a bad fall on the sidewalk while walking back to my car after work. I had to park two blocks away, it was the only space available. I used to be able to walk that distance with no problem. I fell down hard but didn't hit my head. I managed to sit up, but I wasn't able to get back to my feet. Fortunately, a group of evening dinner goers saw me and about 6 people came over to help. With their help I was able to get up and they walked me over to my car. I have fibromyalgia and am also DID with many "inside persons" who daily fight with me. I still want to believe that I am quite capable on my own (I walk with a cane) but lately I keep getting worse. If anyone has advice how to recover from a fall like this with fibro and arthritis, I would love to hear it. Also, any advice about feeling so vulnerable in this world. I am grateful to the group of people who came over to assist me. I am in pain daily, yet still can manage to go to work, for which I am grateful.#Fibromyalgia #Arthritis #Trauma #Anxiety #Depression #PTSD #Abuse Survivor#Diabetes
