Hi, my name is LadyTiriki. I’m new to The Mighty and look forward to sharing my story.
#ADHD . I have been diagnosed with fibromialgia costochondritis , peripheral neuropathy ,thyroid nodules (checking now for cancer ) Hashimoto's Thyroiditis,, ADHD,. I have pain everywhere, The pain from the neuropathy is constant and at times excruciating. Because of this and loss of balance it is hard to walk ,even with my cane .I'm the wife of a disabled veteran, also his official (according to the Veterans Administration) caretaker and fiduciary The constant fatigue,brain fog and pain are making it very difficult to care for my husband and do my cooking and household chores . . Both my husband and my adult children ( two of whom live with us ) cannot understand how sick feel and are always upset at me because don't do what need to do.They think I'm lazy and refuse to help me . I am not shy or unable to speak for myself but 'm at a loss of how to make my family understand and how to change this dynamics.
