Hi all, I'm Tanya. I'm 26 from BC Canada and I have fibromyalgia (of course). I was diagnosed at 22 but I've had it forever really... I was 20ish before I learned that something ALWAYS hurting ISN'T normal! (Seriously, I thought I was terrible at handling my pain...). I'm currently in a bit of a battle with my doctors as I'm hoping to be put on disability. I understand their fears since I'm only 26, but I'm unable to get through the day without tears. I can barely move lots of time, and I do stretches daily and swim and walk when my body lets me. But when I'm working... I can't do anything else!
Making matters worse I currently weigh 304 pounds. I KNOW I need to lose weight, and I really am trying, but it's difficult when all my energy is spent just getting through my day. I'm unable to dress myself sometimes and need my boyfriend to help me... I can't shower sometimes and have to rely on baths (which would be ok if our tub was bigger). I can't grocery shop alone... ugh, it's all so depressing.
I just keep telling myself it'll get better, but sometimes I have to wonder if that's true....
