Dear Folks thought that I would start another page.......
As written in a previous thread there is approx 150 sufferers of Fibromyalgia in Cumbria and around 10 people in my home town!!!! then this is why I feel doctors do not listen to our symptoms, I am dreading going to the doctors on monday as my doctor has left the surgery and I am seeing another doctor I had seen once before......... so I am not looking forward to explaining my pain!!!!!
I feel that as we are a minority this is why we are not taken seriously and as I previously said this is why we do not get the benefits that we are entitled to...... I cannot walk easily due to the pain in my hip and knees, I cannot bend forward due to my hip and spine, I have trouble washing my hair and so my husband has to wash it due to pain in my shoulders I can't lift my arms up for too long,I cant get up easily off a chair, in and out of bed....... my arms and legs go numb etc etc....... what kind of life is this!!! I am 35 too and yet my husband says there is many people that have disabled passes on the bus and walk a lot better than me!!!! I think it is absolutely disgusting the fight we have in order to get these benefits and to this is because we \"are\" only a statistic it appears as this is why our condition is not taken seriously and so this is why we are ignored!!!!!!
Anyway just thought I would let all sufferers know my point of view!!! as I am having a good moan today!!!!
I hope you all are having a better day than me!!!!
