Debbie in Oregon City, Oregon
I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Terri and I am 51yrs old. I live in Oregon. I first started seeing & feeling the symptoms of fibro when I was about 20yrs old. I never went to the doctor because I am obese and didn't want to hear them just tell me to lose weight no matter what. So, when the pain started I started taking over the counter meds and as the pain got worse, I increased the meds only to end up in the hospital because I was vomitting blood. I had to have 6 units of blood transfused and was in the hospital for 17days. By the time I got out of the hospital, I could not walk so I am no longer weight bearing and need to use a wheelchair. After being in the hospital, I was then in a Rehab & Care Center for 3yrs. I have now been home for yrs. For the most part, my pain doctor has my pain managed, but I still have pain everyday and some days are worse than others. I am having one of those bad weeks right now. Thank you for the messages I have already received making me feel very welcome. Hope Everyone has a Happy, Pain free Day! Terri
