About Me: Female, 36, middle of nowhere, IA, member since Jul 2006
I am a 29 year old mother of 2 little boys, ages 12 and 7. They keep me very busy. Its really hard for me to keep up with them because I have fibromyalgia, cushings disease, a pituitary tumor, arnold chiari I malformation, osteoporosis, severe vitamin B12 deficiency, an
[More]d a few other things goin on. It seems like every time I go to the doctors they slap another diagnosis on me and its really starting to tick me off. I was first diagnosed with fibro about 4 years ago and in my opinion this **** is progressive because I am 10 times worse off now than I was 4 years ago. I tend to feel really guilty most of the time because I can not keep up with my children like I want to. If I had one wish in the world it would be to have the old me back. I would just love to go one freakin day without pain or having to take pain medication.
Interests: researching information on fibromyalgia, pain managment, depression, anxiety, neurology, and endocrinology, hell...Lets face it, Im pretty much interested in anything to do with medical issues since I have so many of my own health and medical problems.
Hello. I was just reading the info on you. I'm sorry that you are going through so much and I pray that you are redeemed from this. I don't know how it feels to go through so much, but the many things that I am going through are very tough to deal with, so i can imagine. I personally am dealing with endometriosis, herniated discs in my back, knee dislocations (from injuring myself in martial arts when I was younger, but don't let that scare you from letting your kids do martial arts. It's still Awesome!!!) lol. and I'm dealing with lots more. I do hope the best for you though.
