I have been battling chronic pain for almost two years. It has made it nearly impossible to do many if the things I was accustomed to doing with ease. I am always tired and everything most of the time if not all hurts like all hell.
I FINALLY got a diagnosis last week and though it was satisfying to know what was wrong with me, it was also gave me a name to describe the thing that I have been battling mostly alone. Fibromyalgia. At the age that I am I was hoping that I got these kind of problems when I was older.
Of course I told a few people at first and it was frankly because I had to accept that this was now a part of my life. I decided to post it here because well, I am not the only one who has this.
I had decided last year that I wanted to go back to school. I received my associates so long ago that I wanted to be able to finally add a bachelors degree to that. The fibromyalgia, is just something else I have to fight through.
I have been not so active on my social media or my writing groups because the pain has been unbearable on some days. With a better diet, rest and exercise I am sure I will be better and I will be somewhat back to my regular self.
Now I am simply playing catch up on the things I have been neglecting because of this. I won’t let this define me for the rest of my life.
