I was diagnosed in 2010 with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue along with a long list of other things. In the beginning I thought I would blog about issues to keep track of my problems but there are days I just don't feel well enough to blog or read blogs. Who knows maybe someone will stumble across some of the posts and it might help them or they might have some suggestions that could help me.

13 things you don't want to say to people like us!
I saw this on Facebook the other day and thought hmmm...yep that's me and I get so tired of it...
From Fibro TV
I think this applies to anyone with any type of debilitating chronic
disorder. I was so depressed when I had my first major flare up of the
chronic fatigue and Fibromyalgia and heard this crap from coworkers,
family, and friends. I went to see my doctor cause I was rapidly
approaching a decision in my life and Dr. Merrill apologized to me
telling me that he and his partners had grievously misdiagnosed me for
over 10 years or better. I had heard him arguing in the hall trying to
get the nurse to come tell me what he had decided to diagnose me with
and then he came in and told me I had CFS, Fibro, and some other
disorders. He told me it was no wonder I was majorly depressed but it
was the disorders causing the depression not the other way around.
Needless to say having a doctor, husband, and family that understand and
support you makes a big difference in life.
