I'm 24 years old. I was diagnosed about 9 months ago after a long history of almost 8 years going to many different doctors. I had been told I had issues with certain muscles being too tight and early arthritis is my joints. I have been depressed for as long as I an remember. My pain prevents me from doing things as i would like. It's okay to feel this way. You can always talk to us here on this site. I made my profile because I felt so alone and misunderstood. You're not thinking too much into it. This is alot to handle. Hang in there. You're a warrior. 😀
Listen ur not crazy I've heard the same shit my mother said it wasn't a real disease if it ain't real sum one plz tell my body I obviously missed the memo.

Depression is inevitable, we have a diagnosis that no one can explain nor treat to cure. As you see your life passing by and your unable to keep up you can fall into a depression. I did. Just learn to accept your condition and make the necessary changes to make your life easier. I have done several changes big and small and live a satisfying life. No, it's not as I had or wished for, but I pit myself in control and refuse to give in. Talk to me and tell me your biggest o sticles and I will help you overcome with changes that I would never known about if I didn't reach out for help.
I'm here for you.
Yes , when I finally found out that I had fybro it was a relief to know what was the cause of all my ailments . But I did go thru depression for awhile after. It's the fact that you can't do what u normally do, in my case I had to retire from a job I loved for 24 years. And just the change of yourself . And the limits, and what my family will think , or understand . They still don't get it or friends. I have always been so independent and liked to make my own money . A go getter kind of person . I dislike change . And hate feeling that I have no control over myself . Or what day I will feel bad or good . I went on Zoloft finally and it has helped a great deal . I still feel bouts of depression . But not as intense . Finding this support group helped as well , knowing I'm not crazy , others have the same symptoms , ect
Yes its all real..its painful..I have had Fibro for 16 years.What I found to be helpful is to fine Fibro friends so you can talk and be real..and not have to put a fake face on..when your feeling down.No-one understands how it feels everyday..better than a person who has it..I met women through Fibro meetings we exchange numbrs..and on a good day maybe we can meet and do something..and if we can't that day we understand why..they don't get mad.they understand..just talking on the phone sometimes helps ( you don't have to get dressed to do that LOL My name on Facebook is Claudia Alice Wey..message me and I will give you my phone number..it is important to share how you feel having Fibro..and not bottle it up..Love You gentle hugs !! ( Mention in the message your from our Fibro group ) Hugs ♥ ♥
