Hi! I am new to this group and so glad that I found other folks that are havings the same problems. I am really frustrated that I don't have a lot of good days right now. I was recently diagnosed with FIBRO. I also have peripheral neuropathy in my feet which has caused a bad fall a couple of weeks ago and I ended up bruising my ankle bone and partially tearing 4 tendons. I also sprained my shoulder. I got up to go to the restroom and lost all the feeling in my feet. I also have Degenerative Disc Disease along with 7 buldging disc in my back and neck. I am in the process of an Appeal for my Disability claim. I am really angry that this has happened to me and my family have had to become care givers to me. I have say many days looking out the glass sliding doors at my pool and wondering will I ever want to do anything again. I am depressed, anxious and I can't even begin to tell you how many medications I am on. I do thank GOD every day for my family. I just wish I could do more. I need someone out there to tell me that it's going to get better. I left my career as a health care provider at a director level and now most days I sit in the recliner and watch tv because I am in this big black hole and can't get out. In addition I have a boot on my foot and my doc told me not to walk on it to much until I see him tomorrow. Sorry to ramble on. I just had to get this out of me becuause I havn't been able to find a group that would understand. Thank you for anyone who reads this and can respond back.
