Ready To Move Forward Again


I was taking to my husband yesterday and how this year seems like the worst year of my life. I’ve had other horrible years in my past thanks to crippling depression but something about this year just makes it feel so much worse. Strangely I am not dealing with severe depression right now even though I have never been through as much as I have been this year. Sure I’m a little down at times and frankly that’s to be expected. I’ve read that Fibromyalgia is rarely present without depression and anxiety. I am shocked that this is the least depressed that I have been in the last 5-6 years. The beginning of my year saw me hospitalized for 2 weeks and out of work for 8 weeks. My kidneys were failing me and I was severely anemic thanks to an allergic reaction.
Even though my kidneys recovered and my anemia is long gone, I’ve been left to deal with fibromyalgia for the rest of my life. Fibromyalgia is a condition where the sufferer experiences chronic, diffuse, aching pain all the time, disturbed sleep, chronic low energy, and a host of other issues. I have to visit yet another specialist on Monday. This time a urologist to be evaluated for a bladder condition called interstitial cystitis, which can commonly accompany fibromyalgia. I could let this depress me even more but I’m trying not to let that happen because there is nothing I can do to make it go away. I can just manage it and stay strong.
You’ll be hearing a lot more about my fibromyalgia and how it effects my life on this blog. I requested a book from the library about foods that help with fibromyalgia, I am waiting to get it but I’m interested to read it. I’m ready to move forward again with my life.

  1. {{hugs}} I do want to ask, can you elaborate on the fibro and how you deal with it after surgery? I dont see it followed how having the life changing surgery works with different issues we have to deal with. It would be insightful if you did that and very helpful.

    Just hang in there and always keep that positive attitude working. The doctors can treat you but only you can really help yourself. :) All the best!
