I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia yesterday. It's a relief because my pain is validated by a doctor who wants to help. But I am a nurse who cares for babies on ventilators at home and and struggling to keep my job because there is rarely a good day anymore with this pain and suffering. I have a husband who I've been married to for one year. It also relieves some of his concerns just because I have a name for my disability. I just want to know that other people are having as much pain as I am. And, I'm afraid I am going to have to stop working and just be cared for. I'm only 24 but my fibromyalgia is in an active acute phase. Will someone share their stories and maybe some hope that I am not doomed to be a burdon on my family or even some insight on how to continue being a nurse because it is so important to me. Thanks.
