    I'm new here!

    Hi, my name is Cricket58. I've been diagnosed with

    #MightyTogether #Anxiety #Depression #PTSD #Fibromyalgia #WhiteMatterBrainDisorder #Chiari Malformation, #Lupus #Osteoarthritis , #chronic Fatigue Syndrome, #hashimoto , Ankylosing Spondylitis and Degenerative Disc Disease.


    Support needed

    With Fibromyalgia, Hashimoto’s, Depression, Anxiety and 4 back surgeries, I found out yesterday that I have to have another surgery and it’s a doozy. My kyphosis scoliosis went from 10 to 40 degrees in a year, and 13 more degrees in 4 months. I live in constant chronic pain, which my medications no longer provide much help. My neurosurgeon told me my spine is basically collapsing on itself. My muscles and tendons are not doing their job supporting it and my only hope to not live in so much pain is to have a scoliosis surgery, where rods and screws will be put in my thoracic area. 3-5 day hospital stay and doc says I will hate him for the first 6 months. I am in my early 50’s, and scared to do it but also scared to have it progress even more.
    Anyone else out there have this surgery? I’m nervous as hell. #kyphosis scoliosis #Fibromyalgia #hashimoto #Depression #Anxiety #Mixed connective tissue disease

    #Spiritual #hashimoto

    Have you ever think about the #Spiritual cause of your #Diagnosis ?

    I think it can be really tricky but exciting to puzzle our #Disease out...

    Let's think together. We're not #alone .👥

    I'v read many articles about #hashimoto (my "friend"😉). As I try to remember the years before the start of my disease, I felt so many times -you know- "lump in my throat" when I've experienced awkward situations and #emotional traumas.🤐

    I'm truly believe that our body, mind and soul are in close connection with each other and you can not abuse any of them without affecting the other. ☯️

    Unfortunatelly I've ignored the smyptoms of my body and soul too long. But noe I'm trying to look inside and fbd my inner peace again. 🌸

    What's your opinion? Share with me, share with us. ❤️

    I have to radically accept that I'm just not travelling so great at the moment. So much so that I needed to stop for a coffee while doing some shopping because my anxiety was so high I could feel a panic attack coming on. These things are real and millions of people are suffering the same way each day. I'm not judging myself today. I'm going to be gentle and lead with self compassion cos God knows it's right and I deserve that-we all do. If your day is going great, enjoy it. If you're struggling a little, be kind and go gently and take it one moment at a time. 💙🙏🏼#Anxiety #PanicAttacks #CPTSD #ChronicDepression #hashimoto #DiabetesType2 #MightyTogether

    I'm new here!

    Hi, my name is Chris. I've been diagnosed with

    #MightyTogether #Anxiety #Depression #Migraine #hashimoto Disease. I am struggling with this diagnosis. My most recent TSH level was 34.18!!!! The doctor has told me this is one of the highest levels she has ever seen. I am a married momma with 5 children, four of them are under the age of 8 and range from 16 to 3. I am tired all of the time and my back always is tense and sore. I've been told I am lazy, unproductive, and overweight. I've been told that I don't care enough about myself or my family. I suffer with debilitating depression, anxiety, and panic attacks. I drift through life feeling like im in a fog 95% of the time and I cannot describe how I feel.

    Fibromyalgia arm weakness

    Good afternoon fellow Mighty’s! I am diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, Hashimoto’s, Arthritis, Psoriasis, and failed back surgery syndrome.
    I have a question- does anyone else experience arm weakness and pain at night? This is a new symptom for me. UGH will it ever stop? Some doctors say Fibromyalgia does not get worse with age, I call bull#%¥+
    on that! #Fibromyalgia #hashimoto ’s #chronic pain


    Hi! I’m new here…

    I am a new member with a few rare diseases and mental health conditions due to an entire life filled with trauma. I’m hoping to find others like me so I don’t feel so alone in this daily fight to stay alive. #MightyTogether #ComplexRegionalPainSyndrome #Agoraphobia #EmptySellaSyndrome #hashimoto #Anxiety #PTSD #OccipitalNeuralgia #longhaulcovid


    Blended families #Depression #EatingDisorders #hashimoto #DiabetesType2

    I'm having mixed emotions with hubby and his kids/their family.
    We have been married for a number of years and still have problems with boundaries with kids.
    I'm feeling trapped frustrated and angry. I've been told I'm the problem with relationships and reason for son writing his dad off by his daughter.
    Now, we are retired and watching great grandkids 3 x a week. I'm wanting to travel with him, take classes and get out more.
    We had issues with grandkids and the demands getting too much and when we set a limit, it ended up a nightmare.
    I guess I just needed to vent , but I'm feeling like I need to run,,,,#Depression #Diabetes #hashimoto #EatingDisorders


    I’m doing horrible in the last few days. I’m almost 30, no work, no relationship (ever). A couple months ago I’ve met someone we chatted every single day all days, laughed it has given me such a sense of purpose I haven’t experienced in many many years… I finally felt like I could get my life together, messages from him were brightening up my day so much.
    A few days ago he said he hoped we were on the same page and he’s not ready to commit to anything because a few months ago him and his gf split up after many years being together but he really wants to stay friends and he understood how much our friendship meant to him.
    It was a hard-to-swallow pill and I couldn’t answer him right away because of the high amount of pain and emotions I was experiencing, but I finally did and told him that I cared a lot and I am fine with it.
    I acted like always (even though it was hurting badly) but he didn’t answer to my last message (regular talk) a few days ago and it never happened before.
    I am literally going through hell now, I am talking different pills anything to put me to sleep.
    I feel like my depression his presence helped me with is back with its double strength.
    I feel like nobody cares about what I am going through and I am thinking about suicide. I feel so helpless…
    I’m feeling unattractive and lost. Like my life literally means nothing.
    Therefore; I have no access to any therapist.

    Worn out from flare up #hashimoto 's

    I have just recently started my autoimmune journey, and I have for the most part been taking everything into stride. I'm really relieved that all of my symptoms have an actual cause behind them, and have been trying to make better lifestyle choices to push the antibodies into remission and minimize symptoms. Even so, I still get flare ups and it's so frustrating. I can't concentrate at work, can't enjoy little things, and I feel like no one in my life can understand me right now. I had to hold in the tears just now at work. If anyone else is going through something similar, I feel for you. I am here too. You are not alone.
