We received this tale from one of our closed members and requested us to post it on “Fibromyalgia Resources.” This is what individuals with fibromyalgia should know about.
Understanding my Pain
It is not your pain that is my pain. Inflammation is not the cause. It won’t assist me to take your medicine for arthritis. I can’t operate or shake my pain away. It doesn’t even remain a pain. He’s in my shoulder today, but he can be in my feet or disappeared tomorrow. My pain, perhaps due to sleep disorders, is reported to be caused by unsuitable signals sent to the brain. They’re not well understood, but they’re true.
Understanding my Fatigue
I’m not just tired of it. I’m in serious exhaustion many times. Maybe I want to take part in physical work, but I can’t do so. Take this not personally, please. You saw me shopping yesterday at the mall, but today, I can’t assist you with yard work. I probably pay a cost beyond my capacity to stress my muscles.
Understanding my Forgetfulness
Those of us that have suffered call its fibro fog. Perhaps I don’t remember your name, but I recall you. You just informed me a few seconds ago I might not remember what I promised to do for you. My issue is not linked to my era but may be linked with the lack of sleep. I don’t have a memory selective. I have no short-term memory at all on a couple of days.
Understanding my Clumsiness
I don’t want to target you if I step on your toes or go into your crowd five times. For that, I don’t have muscle control. Please be patient if you’re behind me on the stairs. These days, one step at a moment, I take lives and stairways.
Understanding my Sensitivities
I just can’t stand it. I just can’t stand it! “It” might be many things; bright sunlight, loud or loud noises, smells. The FMS is called “all disorder aggravating.” Don’t get me to open the clothes or listen to your kids shouting. I can’t resist it, really.
Understand my Intolerance
Neither can I stand water. Or moisture. I sweat, if I am a guy. I sweat. I suck when I’m a woman. Both are equally embarrassing, so please don’t feel obliged to tell me about this deficiency. I understand that. I understand. And don’t be surprised if when it’s cold, I shake uncontrollably. Neither can I tolerate cold. My internal thermostat is broken, and it can’t be remedied by anyone.
Understanding my Depression
Yes, I’m going to remain in bed, in the house or die in days. Depression can be caused by severe, relentless pain. You can take me away from the border with your genuine concern and comprehension. I can tip myself over the brink of your snide comments.
Understanding my Stress
I’m not stressful in my body. I’m not lazy if I need to abandon my job, work part time or take on my home duties. Stress every day exacerbates my symptoms and can totally disable me.
Understanding my Weight
I might be fat or thin. I might be fat. It’s not by decision, either way. It’s not your body, my body. My appetites are shattered, and no one can say how they can solve them.
Understanding my Good Days
Don’t suppose I am good if you see me smiling and working normally. I have no cure for chronic pain and fatigue. I could have my good days, weeks or months. Indeed, what keeps me going are the good days.
Understanding my Uniqueness
Even those with FMS aren’t the same. This means that I may not have all the above problems. I have pain above and under the tail and it lasts for a very long time on both sides of my body. I may have migraines, hip or shoulder pain or knee pain, but I don’t have the same pain exactly as anybody else.
Understanding my Disability
My handicap is invisible, but it is still there. It’s the same as you don’t see the air, but fibromyalgia, its real existence, is present the same thing. Not all of that in our heads, why would I not place something more recognizable, like cancer, in my head?
