    Bad Dream Forever

    For about the last 14 years I have had fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and major depression. Sometimes getting out of bed is a major feat for the day. But beyond that I am currently working 2 jobs to pay all the bills for my family including college tuition for my...

    I was diagnosed with Fibro in 2010

    when I was 15. My symptoms started back when I was 10. I started getting worse when I was 17. Flares became more frequent and fatigue got worse. So I now think I have CFS but doctors don't really want to help me. I'm on a big wait list at a doctor but may not be getting in till...

    I was diagnosed with Fibro

    and CFS around 2010. I am on two medications which help with the everyday pain and keep that pain to a bearable amount. However, I am struggling when the flares bring about the migraines and bone pains. I am considering speaking with my pain specialist about switching from one...

    I've had this since I was 12 years old maybe

    younger... I'm 18 now and it's unbearable some days, I'm rotting in this bed because everything I do causes a flare and I can't seem to remember much most days, it's horrible but I'm trying really hard to get better and get it under control

    I have had FMS since I was 8 years old.

    It gets worse with the years. I've had to give up my dream of having children, a career, a full life. I don't think I can live the rest of my life like this.

    My doctor was finally able to pin down the

    problems making my arthritis worse. We both thought it was my anemia doing something with the arthritis but turns out we were wrong. Just so happy to rule out far worse possibilities. Better to live with bad health issues than looking at the worse option.

    I got ill in 2003, and one of the suggestions

    was 'chronic fatigue syndrome' but I am glad I never got that label as it is a dangerous dead end and a 'get out of testing free' card for bad and lazy doctors. I finally got a diagnosis of M.E. (which is often wrongly called CFS) in 2013 and Fibromyalgia in 2015. If you get...

    People just think I'm being lazy

    or making excuses. It takes a lot out of me to do some simple tasks. No one gets that.
