i have fibro/osteoarth. i used to be vital, play guitar, go out. now in constant bands of pain, cant lift anything, bathe myself, housebound for many months now. i've tried all the meds, not really working. only have use of 1 arm. have tried running from it emotionally but i cant. my partner mike (social worker) is at hockey games with youth groups, out later and later. he seems more vital as i fade. we have no kids. i feel older than him and he's decided i'm boring/useless. my doctor is discourageing. all i can do is sleep; hate waking up. i have no family and dont see friends much. and no, i'm NOT angling for pity. they say reach out if you need help but no one knows what to say to this so far. o well, thanx for letting me ramble
