I’m in another flare up #Fibromya

I went for a 10 minute walk for the first time since having covid (I deliberately made sure not to push myself for the whole month). I sat down multiple times, I made sure that I slowed my pace down and walked slow. I made sure that I paced myself. It didn’t matter, I’ve been in extreme fatigue since. I can’t think straight, I can’t focus on anything or retain any information. Even better I’m still waiting on my rheumatologist letter from early December! I’m exhausted and in pain. I’m also scared that I won’t be able to continue working. I just started an apprenticeship for teaching. I don’t want it to take away that dream, not when I’m so close. #Fibromyalgia #ChronicIlless #ChronicFatigue #ChronicPain #Flareup

Seeking diagnosis support

i've struggled with chronic pain, fatigue, and mental illness as long as i can remember. i was raised in an emotionally abusive situation that denied me early medical intervention. i'm 21 now, on year 2 of being on my own and am finally seeking diagnosis.

i potentially have rhumetoid arthritis, lupus, or even EDS, since my pain is very localized to every since joint in my body. i meet with a new GP soon to pursue diagnosis and real medical care for the first time in my life.

im feeling really scared that its not going to work out yet again, im anxious as hell, i just wanna skip to the part where i at least know what i have so i can pursue medical intervention. im sick of being in pain all the time and im grieving that i cant work right now and that my parents never got early intervention for me. i know it gets better but for now everything is scary and im just seeking more support from other disabled people.
