20 November 2012
So, this is my first journal entry. I'm 17, and I have fibromyalgia. I've only been properly diagnosed for a year now, and I'm not sure how I'm doing?
I suppose I have to say how I feel today?
Well, my left leg has had cramps all day because I have Restless Leg Syndrome, so I'm trying to be as still as possible. I have a headache the size of Africa, and being in charge of a noisey dorm is not helping it. My jaw and back are in pain, but I've sort of gotten used to that, it hurts like hell but its always been there.
Tomorrow can't come fast enough, the stress from exams have made things a lot worse, but I'll be going to physio for a little relief.
The depression has hit me hard this past month, and even with the antidepressant I've had tiny little breakdowns all over the place. This morning I burst into tears because my closet door wouldn't close, only to find that there was a strap in the way. I haven't been able to study all day, no matter how hard I tried...
How long am I gonna feel this crappy?
