Hello everyone. I'm not new here, been a member since I think 2008, but I haven't been on here much in the last 2 years. I had a hard time with the change of this site, but also I've been in counseling for 2 years so I haven't used this as my outlet. Also I am almost NEVER on my computer anymore. I keep myself busy with TV, Youtube watching, not recording, although I'd love to figure out how to make a Fibro awareness video with music and pictures. I'm rambling...
I'm reintroducing myself for those who are "new" in the past 2 years. I'm 42, female, divorced, no kids. I have a very dysfunctional family (mom, dad, brother, sister) My extended family has never been part of my life, they are basically strangers and live really far away anyway). I have Fibro and CFS, disagnosed in 2007. My husband left me in 2010. We were married 10 years. I was 33 when he left me. We had no babies, no house, just rented. We were STILL trying to start a life. I have PCOS and infertile because of it.
Diagnosed with Fibro and CFS in 2007 after about 10 years of doctoring. I worked full time since I was 18 but at age 32 I had to leave on disablity and I really thought I would come back, thought I just needed a lot of rest and let new meds work. Didn't happen. Went on Long Term disablility and Social Security disability and basically life has been on pause since then.
I want to connect again with fibro friends. We are the ONLY ones who truly understand how debilitating this can be. I just want some friends.
Take care everyone.
Not a good way to start my work week. Sitting in my office crying. Just feeling so sad about work, about not getting to take my girls trick or treating (ever again, ex has custody the last Saturday of October), about being bullied by him weekly. He nagged me for two weeks and refused to buy them Halloween costumes. He hung out at my house for an hour playing outside with them yesterday....
