Here's the situation, I am in contact with a young lady who needs some encouragement. Let me preface her story by explaining to you that she has come into my Fibromyalgia forum looking for help and suggestions, a very positive move!
Briefly, Fibromyalgia makes a person feel like the worst case of the flu you've ever had, if you do too much it will put you to bed for days.
Here's her story:
"What to do? Diagnoised in 08 with Fibromyalgia, since 09, my life consist of nothing. No job, no disabililty, no old friends, have met new people but nothing to talk about, nothing to do, no place to go. If I sit still then the pain is minimum. I'll get bored and try cleaning, pampering me, or get out and try something & then I pay forit...big time. I smile all the time but dont feel good inside. Barely enough for neccessities cant affort any simple pleasures. So what do I do? I'm 37 and live in Eastpointe, MI. I make it to church sometimes, I have to share my mom's truck (that goes to one church with my son) with my sister who work midnights and we go to a seperate church. By the time I get my son to Sunday School, and get back so my mom can get to morning service, my church is halfway thru service."
I ask her about a Fibromyalgia support group:
"I live in Eastpointe, there is a support group in nearby Roseville but everyone there is over 50, so i didnt relate well with them. Plus transportation is big problem. I had a court date in May but it got postponed, dont have a date yet. Wish i could find something that makes me feel happy, the anti-depressant work good but its not enough."
So can anyone help me to help this beautiful young lady? I thank you in advance and pray God's Blessings upon you!
