Just Not Accepting The Label

2 years ago I went in to see doc for unbelievable exhaustion and weird, but sporadic body pain. My skin sometimes feels like I have a sunburn, it's tender and crazy sensitive. I get up in the morning and I'm so tired I have literally cried because I have to go to work, take care of my kids and keep a household up and running. I have areas all over my body that get pain in them at no specific time, and nothing seems to prompt the pain. I don't have swelling or anything you can physically see. It's all internal it seems. I feel like I have bricks tied to my legs and every step is a chore. Doc wanted to send me to a neurologist that is 3 hours away, no way! Not going. He said he's sure I have Fibromyalgia, but to properly diagnose me, I have to be seen by the neurologist. Grr I'm still not going. I'm not accepting this plague! I'm going to fight this w God by my side, I refuse to let this be who I become!

I really understand. I also fought it with faith,but there came a point I became bedridden because I had no energy left. & lots of pain. They do have medication that can relieve some symptoms. If you don't want to go that route, I think you could help yourself to learn how to naturally take care of your needs. Eating right, getting enough sleep, at least some activity without doing too much that can make the symptoms flair up. There is a lot of support out there now. Reaching out & learning all you can will help. Take Care, WM
