    Can someone relate

    #Fibromyalgia #FibroFog #fibrowarrior #FMS

    This seems to be the sampling of experiences that we have found. Being new to chronic illness we joined this place and community to learn more and to relate. We are thankful for this community and as of now are in sure how to answer this question. When It began there was debilitating pain weakness and we used a Cain. Now there is less pain (Meds) however weakness and fatigue are the challenges? This is our first year so we have no idea what our illness looks like all we know is we are not able to work not able to keep up and if we try to hard we lay in bed.

    Maybe this sounds familiar to you. For us we cycle 🔃 oh look we are better we can do this then exhaustion and couch. Oh look we are having a good day then couch. Oh look we have had a good few days couch all weekend.

    This is how we now experience life. Can anyone relate?


    Normal with fibro???

    Hi. Is it normal with fibro to lose blocks of time? My fibro fog has definitely been getting drastically worse in the last 6 months and now I'm finding I'm losing blocks of time during the days, when I look back on the day. #Fibromyalgia #FibroFog #RheumatoidArthritis


    We cycle through recovery dose anyone feel like the up and down back around again and again?

    So we get feeling well we start to get some traction and feel like the world is coming back then the next day we have trouble trying to get out of bed? #BrainFog #Fibromyalgia #FibroFog



    Hi, I'm new here. I suffer from depression amongst a few other mental health issues and physical issues. It's been a downward spiral for many years now. My one hope was to fulfill a dream of mine with my education. However, it's been nearly 2 years now and nothing has worked out. I have lost interest to do anything with my life even though I finish my day to day tasks. Somehow this makes me wonder if I genuinely have depression. My dreams have been crashing around me for many years now. I don't have hope anymore. It is hard for me to write this down, not just because of vulnerability but also because my brain just fogs over and I forget things.

    My mind needs a rest 🙌🏼🤼‍♀️

    Pushing through another day #Fibromyalgia #FibroFog #MentalHealth #BipolarDisorder


    Rough day

    Today was a rough day. Yesterday I fell cut my side and bruised it pretty good. Not what a person with fibromyalgia needs. Tired of hurting when just trying to rest. Tired of hurting when just trying to work to provide for my family. Tired of hurting when just trying to go to sleep. Will it get better? How do I live with this every day? I’m scared, don’t know what to say to my family and don’t know what to say to my job. Just need some prayers as I’m feeling pretty down today. #Fibromyalgia #FibroFog #Tiredofhurting #Hope


    Today is hard

    Had my counseling appointment, it went okay. We discussed things if I don't feel I can keep myself safe, the mammogram (not scheduled yet), #Selfharm stuff, #SuicidalIdeation stuff and things.
    I kinda want to self-harm now, #Depression is high. Trying to motivate myself to do stuff. I'm really depressed and don't know why 😔 counseling didn't help too much. I feel like my life is one big distraction lately.
    I miss my grandma a lot 😭 she died in 2019, she was more of mom than my mom could be it seemed. It's better now with my mom, a lot better but I can't discuss mental health issues with her or any other family members really. I didn't really with my grandma but I knew she loved me unconditionally and we agreed more on a lot of things.
    My case manager called from my doctor's office about a different rheumatologist. Having issues getting in with one. She also called me back cause I called her about the depression and stuff, I don't know how that made me feel. I'm kinda numb and have fibro fog badly. Everything seems at an arms length and I'm disassociating a tad. I'm not doing great.

    My cat Lint!

    My purpose for life lately is my cat Lint. She helps me a lot. I'm her only constant. If I did anything I'd be abandoning her.

    Doing a little better today

    Called the crisis line again today 😞 have not self-harmed or anything. Just panicked. Playing a video game and listening to music right now to try and stay calm. I kinda wanna self-harm still just stating distracted. Staying safe though.
    Doctor's office called today and said the imaging place will be calling soon to schedule the mammogram and I'm freaked out about that. More tests results came back normal so they still don't know what's wrong with the other stuff.
    Have counseling tomorrow and I hate explaining I'm suicidal. It scares me to, I don't want inpatient. I'm trying to keep myself focused on the good and things that help. Just unsure how to bring things up to my counselor tomorrow...
