Fibromyalgia affects a lot of 4 million Americans, it is more common in women than in men ,this suffering of a woman with fibromyalgia ,fibromyalgia symptoms in females
“This woman say “I’m only 25, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia about 4 years ago, I think my husband is the only person who knows how bad I’m doing and he doesn’t talk about it. I spend a lot of time in bed because even when the pain is manageable, I’m so physically and mentally exhausted that I can’t even tolerate sitting up on the couch.
A few months ago I quit my full-time job and started working part-time. I thought that working less would help me feel better if I wasn’t so stressed and spending long hours at a computer. I’ve been going to the chiropractor and to physical therapy, but I don’t feel like it is helping.
” she still say “I got my medical cannabis card and I feel a minor improvement, but not enough to help take away all of the pain and fatigue. Because of the cannabis munchies, I have gained a small amount of weight. A close friend and my aunt and uncle told me they think I look so healthy from the weight gain. I told them all that I feel the worst I’ve ever felt in my life. Every time I make an honest comment like this, I just feel like no one wants to believe it because they don’t understand it.
I just don’t feel like anyone understands and acknowledges how bad things have gotten. My family lives 30 minutes away from me and it almost kills me sometimes to drive to see them, let alone have energy for a visit and then the drive home.
On my good days, I can clean one or two rooms of my house but those days are few and far between. My husband works all of the time so I don’t get any help around the house. I know it upsets him that I don’t keep the house spotless and make dinner every night like I used to. He hates that I’m only working part-time, not only because it is less money, but because I’m not putting as much money into 401 k or social security.
I have been feeling very depressed and anxious about the fact that I am not getting better despite working less and trying so hard to get better by going to the chiropractor and physical therapy. Being alone and feeling alone are not helping either, I just want to feel better and enjoy my life.
