I'm new here!

Just wanted to say hello. I was just diagnosed with fibromyalgia in February. I'm pretty new to all of this. I'm happy to finally have some answers. I don't have a support system at home. My husband refuses to believe anything is wrong with me. According to him, "I don't know what real pain feels like." "I'm just lazy." So I'm hoping you all can help me with a support system. #FibromyalgiaDiagnosis #supportsystem

Rheumatologist diagnosed me and then discharged me?

I went through the whole process of diagnosis with suspected rheumatoid arthritis or some sort of autoimmune condition. Eventually the rheumatologist diagnosed me with fibro but didn’t actually tell me. My gp informed me after it was found in his notes nearly 3 months after. The same day the rheumatologist diagnosed me, he discharged me. What do I do? I know there’s no cure as such but should I still be under a rheumatologist for management?

I’m in my last year of high school so I’m struggling to pace without falling behind. Any tips would be appreciated! #Fibromyalgia #FibromyalgiaDiagnosis #ChronicIllness #chronic

Hi. My name ic kidcat20, most just call me cat. It taken me awhile to say hi. I'm normally really shy, but will talk if I can give advice. So stepping out of the shadows is a big step. I have been lurking for some time and find these groups really supportive and something I need in my life. #ChronicDepression #ChronicPain #FibromyalgiaDiagnosis #Migraine

Family life with Fibromyalgia

I am newly diagnosed with fibromyalgia, 3 years ago finally treated properly for anxiety and depression (which I have lived with all my life undiagnosed and unmediated). This year was tough on me and my family with ….one attempted suicide, one serious thought of suicide and 2 hospitalizations due to my mental illness. My husband and 3 grown kids have emotionally abandoned me. My husband first of all doesn’t really talk to me or help me with my medical issues. He talks to the kids about my lack of energy as I’m lazy. He forced me to take a job and I’m struggling to work my best at it because of fibromyalgia issues. I feel abandoned and all alone in this world. I need suggestions to help mend me and my family. #FibromyalgiaDiagnosis #Family
