I'm getting no treatment I have fibro, had surgery to detach my tethered spinal cord, it reattached. No ins, have to lay down all the time

I'm just really giving up, when I can get to the Dr I get no help. #Noinsurance #Fibromyalgia #TetheredSpinalCord #cantwork #painisrelentless #treatedbad

New H.R. process.

So this was fun. I got handed this today as part of my attendance management program that I’ve been on for over a year now. Which basically means everytime I’m sick I have to go to a clinic doctor (I would love to see my doctor for this but it is so short notice) to get a stupid note saying I was sick. And you get harassed here by the clinic doctors because it’s non sense they aren’t assessing you just writing a note. I get it but that’s not my problem. I’m made to do this or I face disciplinary actions at work and can be fired. So I go pay 20-25$ each time which the company then reimburses me later. Silly stupid process. I’m just feeling angry because society forces shame on those in the community who are sick. This is degrading to be matched on paper like this and turned into a thing. Their words they used are trending down. Wth. I feel like a number. I hate this job. #Sicknotes #Attendance #cantwork #doctorsnotes


Help Me Help A Friend #help #shortnessof breath#exertion #chestheavy #restrictivedefect #weakrespiratorymuscles #cantwork #walkingisexertion #help

Can anyone say what these symptoms may be. My friend is suffering and nobody can help. She spent 2 months in Canada recently and no results. We live in Barbados.
She gets short of breath, tight chest, heavy chest with most movement/ on exertion. She can no longer do her day to day stuff at home furthermore work. Her voice goes when chest is tight and needs to rest for 2 days at least before she can even attempt to be up at home after an episode.
They say she has a restrictive defect and her respiratory muscles are weak.
Sound familiar to anybody? #help #weakrespiratorymuscles #restrictivedefect #SOS


What are some of the things you do to help you get through your most painful moments where you are praying to god to die . How do you deal with pain

I have had moments days that are very painful where when I try to sleep I pray that god takes me . But when I really think about it there is so many things that I would miss about life which is why I won’t do anything to harm myself . But this pain is awful especially when can’t take meds to help the pain without it causing more pain but in my stomach instead of my chest ribs and shoulder . #chronicsevereCostochondritis #Fibromyalgia #cantwork
