Hi, my name is Veda. I was diagnosed with fibro last year, but I have been suffering since 2006. I have a child and he is 11 years old. I just got married last November of 2013.
I have really been in pain. My whole left side of my body is hurting. Some days it flared up bad and others days it can be light. I can’t let people touch my left arm because it hurts so bad. I try to enjoy life, but then the next day I feel bad. I try to do things but try not to go over board. Sometimes I feel lonely. My mom understands me. My husband doesn’t, but he says he does. We have argued about this a couple of times. I don’t know… but I’ll be fine.
Someday’s I’ll be at work hurting, doing this and that, and I just want to cry. Someday’s I just don’t go at all. It’s sad because I’m used to working full-time and now only work part-time. But I’m going to get a full time job, I have a child to take care of. I get little depressed about it because I want the old me back. It really irks when people says, “Oh, you’re hurting today, you must not be feeling well. You need to go home and get some sleep,” or take some perks, or you need this or that. I’m the one suffering . It drives me crazy. But hey I be okay. In May I’m doing a little walk for fibromyalgia awareness, so people can understand it’s real, not invisible.
