    4am Blank Spot #Fibromyalgia

    Another way too early morning. Radiating pain thru my core, back, neck, shoulders, hips. Maybe the arms and legs hurt today too (always, not maybe) but not noticing much over the core pain today.
    Still not understanding fibromyalgia except for the helpless hopeless endless pain. #exhausted #Fibromyalgia #newdiagnoses

    Question

    Any Advice For newly Diagnosed EDS

    I've been suffering from pretty much everything in the EDS book, and saw four doctors before one even mentioned it to me. I self diagnosed about three months ago, and now I am actually Diagnosed. I know everything mayo clinic and the Ehlers Danlos society can give me, but is there any personal advice? #EhlersDanlosSyndrome #newdiagnoses #AdviceWelcome

    Fibromyalgia #newdiagnoses #Fibromyalgia

    I’ve just been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and may also have Lupus. My entire body hurts all the time and no matter what I do in order to make the pain go away it always come back. I’m in the process of learning to work with my body and not against it but it’s so hard.

    I'm 22. I've been diagnosed with anxiety and depression for several years but was only diagnosed with bipolar 2 yesterday. I'm not an angry person, I've never done anything dangerous and I've only ever had one manic episode. I didn't realize that it was at the time, but apparently waking up at 4 am and deciding to buy $2,000 worth of new furniture qualifies. (I had a fully furnished home). I never imagined myself as bipolar, even though my biological father had it. I feel like my whole world just shifted a little bit. Now its it's all about medications and therapists and psychiatrists. I haven't been working for about a month because of a depressive episode that resulted in me getting put in a mental hospital. I'm trying to stay positive and remember that this diagnoses does not define me. Any advice or thoughts would be incredible.

    Diagnosis

    Something told me this new psychiatrist would be different. Call it intuition, I suppose. After at least 20 years of being treated for #GeneralAnxietyDisorder and #Depression I received a diagnosis Friday of #Bipolar and began a completely new treatment regimen since I’ve always been treated with “uppers” verses mood stabilizers. I’m still processing a bit and there’s a Greta deal of paranoia about starting a new medication. But overall I feel empowered having a better idea, and in turn, a better understanding of my mental health. So I’m trying to remain positive that this new path will be a better lit path to outrun the darkness.

    Question

    How do I cope with the realization that I've not only experienced trauma, but that it might have developed into a stress disorder???

    So, long story short, I went through a lot of childhood trauma, and it's taken me ages to even call it that, because it's significantly difficult for me to face up to it as a real issue in the first place. I like to avoid things.
    Anyway, a good friend of mine convinced me to see a therapist, which has led to discussion of PTSD but I'd only ever heard of the traditional kind and I certainly don't have that.
    But then they brought up C-PTSD and the symptoms I was exhibiting, and I did more research, and I've been reading things on here and... I don't know. It's got me up later every night.
    I don't even know why it bothers me so much, to know that what haunts me has a name.
    How do I deal with this? How am I supposed to react?

    Feeling like a train wreck #newdiagnoses

    I recently took a leave of absence from work (as a physical therapist) to focus on my health, my daughter (4yo in March), and my mother (who has #MultipleSclerosis ). Since my leave started in mid September I’ve racked up some new diagnoses: #RheumatoidArthritis #Fibromyalgia #Bipolar2Disorder and potentially #SystemicLupusErythematosus. This is adding to previous list: #CrohnsDisease #Spondyloarthritis #Psoriasis #Depression #Anxiety.
    I’m SO over it!!!! Trying to wrap my head around all this and who I am and what TF I’m doing with my life... 😭🤯🤬😞

    I needed this reminder

    With all of my issues and illness I needed this reminder that I am not my diagnosis. Yes I have a lot going on, however it shouldn’t stop me from being me! #notmyillness #newdiagnoses #notendofworld
