Posted by @daisyd in Bones, Joints & Muscles, Nov 10, 2013

Hi, my name is Daisyd, and i have fibromyalgia for 15 yrs, then i got diagnoist with diatbetes, arthorities and a buldging disk, i am in so much pain every day i take my pain meds but only help for a while, i feel so week and fatig (sry bad speller), because of my medical condition i had to stop working and i had a good paying job, but i lost my house and i had a private insurance that i paid and know they wont honor my disability, which makes my pain act up, i even break out on singles. My family understands but i feel like im just a burden to them, my poor daughter helps my with the cooking and cleaning and my two sons are in college i have a lil 3yr old grandaughter that keeps my comany and a lovable husband that takes care of me the best that he can, he also went threw a kidney transplant and needs knee relpacements so it hard on both of us. I just needed to get this out of my chest. My other family and friends think im faking it so we don't have much friends but thats ok i guess cuz im always in pain and not up to them telling me its all in my head and for me to go out and it will magical go away....ummm.

I have fibromyalgia and spinal stenosis and arthritis; however, my husband is fairly healthy, so he helps me. You really have a bad situation. I'm so sorry that you and your hubby have such health problems. At a time like this, you two really need family & friends to be helpful, not condescending. I hope your situation improves.
