    Gosh Tiggers;  yes you do have a good reason for feeling  low.........it's enough for you to not be well, and it alone would set your Fibro off.....and with your  daughters having major health issues too, you do  have a good need to get some TLC from ALL of us.............I reckon you need at least half an hour a day to come onto Forum and tell us how things are progressing   (bit like using a diary, but hopefully getting some-one to write back)..............wink​we all have days when we feel we Can't get any worse, then we read how much others have to bear............will be thinking  of you and your daughters.............Bron

    Hi tiggers

    I do so understand how you must be feeling, being unwell and having so many family problems at the same time, tell me about it.

    I myselfe have M.E. and fybro with it, had our son end up with appendix op which of he nearly could of died cos his gp failed to diagnose him after many trips back and forth to the drs. in the end he had to get himself admitted then left all night till next morning till they did the op, found he was gangren inside and full of yuk and his appendix was un reconisable as an appendix, they had to do open surgery, the staples never held his wound together, they gave him the wrong antibiotics, sent him home with an open wound to heal which needs dressings changed every day then expected him to walk to drs and back every day to have this done! he can hardly walk, nurses refused to come to him.

    Had a brother who we thought might have cancer and they made him wait  a month to find out, then said actually there is no growth, we will see you in 6 months time!

    Heard last night my nieces ex tried to strangle her after keeping her prisioner in her home for 2 hrs and repeatedley hit her, all in front of her 10 year old son who is deaf and cant speak, 

    I know when you already have illnesses it certainly doesnt help does it. At least with our problems we know they will go away aventually, I am so sorry with all whats going on with you and your daughter, a real worry for you both, must be very daunting and heart breaking.

    No need for apologies on hear, glad you felt you could vent hear and use us all for moral support.

    Warm hugs to you as well

    Sue xx

    Oh wow, Tiggers and Sue....you both make me feel so fortunate, and I should never feel sorry for myself again!  All I can say is my thoughts and prayers go out to both of you and your families.  Hard to cope at the best of times, so be kind to yourselves and it is especially hard to watch your children struggle and not be as much help to them as you want to be.  My heart goes out to you!  It is good to have this outlet to talk some stuff out or share, then back to our lives.  I think it helps us all at least cope, when we share.  Lots of hugs!

      I always think because most people can't see our illness that it doesn't exist, because we don't have visible disabilities ( well some of us) then your expected to act and react like a normal healthy individual and sometimes you want to scream. It does help to speak what's on your mind on here, because there are thousands of us who totally understand each other.

    HI tigger,

    when it rains it pours. When life overloaded on me with so many major issues at once, I recognized that I must take care of myself first. I had so many people and my children dependening on me. Like the pressure never seemed to stop. 

    After finding a good therapist I was better able to sort things out and cope with better techniques to help organize my life. 

    I wish that u too can find a good therapist to lead your life thru all the ups and downs with a better perspective on how important it is to take one thing at a time and put yourself on the top of the list.

    PEACE & HEELING.

    HOPE
