Fibro Motherhood

Fibro Motherhood

Does anyone else have mother’s guilt when not being able to keep up with your kids all the time? How do you manage that feeling on missing out and wishing to be well enough to enjoy it all and how do you say no to your kids when you really need to? Come to think of it, I’m sure this is part of motherhood even without health issue to some extent!

Does anyone else have De Quervain's Tendinosis, and how have you treated it?

Does anyone else have De Quervain's Tendinosis, and how have you treated it?

I found out yesterday that the horrible pain I've been getting in my thumb is De Quervain's Tendinosis (also called De Quervain's Tenosynovitis). Has anyone else had any experience? My doctor recommends against corticosteroid injections at my age (I'm 21), but I've read they can be extremely helpful and I'm going to see a specialist next month. I already take anti inflammatory supplements and wear a brace at night (and most of the day… read more

Good Careers For Fibro

Good Careers For Fibro

I've finished University and I'm starting out my 'adult' life. I need to have a good think about what career is best for me. I've tried some teaching but find it too physically and mentally exhausting.

I was just wondering if anyone had recommendations on good/sustainable careers for Fibro sufferers.

I'd welcome any suggestions.

Thank you everyone xxx

Something you could do from home so you could rest as needed. Or a part time job with flexibility. Good luck.

Breast Reduction with Fibro

Breast Reduction with Fibro

A little off topic, but not really! Let's just be blunt: I have huge boobs. lol Soooo...I have a LOT of neck and shoulder pain. My shoulders roll in, it's hard to stand up straight (I'm going to be a hunchback by age 45 lol).
Last year I requested surgery and my insurance denied me. They wouldn't tell me their reasons, but I was stumped because the plastic surgeon I saw said I had more than enough breast tissue to take out to qualify. After doing my research, I lost 30 pounds (I'll… read more
