Hi, my name is Survivalmode. I'm here because
I am struggling to cope with so many symtoms from my illness. Was diagnosed with fms, cfs, spinal stenosis 3 years ago after suffering many years and recently osteoarthritis in my knees and wrists. I was getting next to no help from my last gp , basically just given painkillers and told to get on with it. I have recently changed my gp but have yet to get proper help . I feel like my symtoms are getting worse and daily life has become such a struggle. Like many , I was a very active person, worked 2 jobs , worked out almost daily , walked miles , was always going out and generally living life . Now I'm constantly exhausted, worrying about my dad and trying to be there for him , trying to be there for my daughter who has bpd and trying to make time for my son and grandson . I'm not only physically exhausted but mentally too aswell as emotionally. I'm in a constant battle with myself everyday. Everything seems such a fight to be heard, listened too or sometimes even believed. Unsure where I go from here so hoping anyone can help with tips , or things that have helped you.
