Make bullying illegal
So I know I haven’t blogged for a long time but this topic is really important to me so I will be hijacking my fibromyalgia blog for this short time. Recently a group of parents have been urging the government to make bullying against the law. I am completely for this as I was bullied ever since my first day at secondary school. Here’s a little background about my experiences:...
Long time no update?
Hey so I haven’t posted to my blog for a really long time. The pregnancy towards the end made me extremely tired so if I wasn’t working I was in bed pretty much. I left work for maternity leave on the 11th of Jan and on the 20th I had my lovely baby boy :). We had to stay in hospital for 3 days as he was a little poorly but, 7 weeks later and we are enjoying our days around the flat...
The final stretch....
Hey so I’m now beyond 35 weeks and have been having a few days where I’ve been getting regular contractions. No sign of waters breaking or any other baby time related signs but I think he’s getting ready to say hello to the world. So since my last update I’ve had an eventful time. We had worries that I had developed preeclampsia a few days ago so went to see my GP. No...
Nearing the end....
So it’s been a long time since I posted an update, sorry for that! I’m now almost 32 weeks and been having a lot of pregnancy/fibro issues. We discovered that my chest pain and heart problems were due to being anemic and the doctor possibly thinks the fibro may have played a role. I have ballooned since my last update and with that the aches and pains have got worse. Both pregnancy...
It’s been a fair while since I posted an update so this could turn into a long one… Since my last post at almost 15 weeks I have moved out of my flat into my boyfriends parents. Although cramped fitting all 4 of us under one roof it is quite nice and I have got to know his parents a lot more since they got back from holiday. We have found our perfect flat and are currently waiting on...
1 week til I meet my consultant...
So I’ve had a tough ol’ time recently, thought that I would do a bit of an update about it… I’m now in my second trimester, 14 weeks and 4 days to be exact right now. And it seems my body is coping less and less each week. I had to go to hospital again last Thursday as my heart started racing and would not go slower no matter what I tried. Luckily nothing majorly wrong...
10 Weeks already?
So today marks 10 weeks into my pregnancy….There’s so many things that I knew happened in pregnancy but I didn’t know they happened this early on!! For example, I’m so out of breath all the time it’s getting annoying. I walk upstairs and I need to rest - part of that is the fibromyalgia, but it’s definitely noticeably getting worse. My body is changing every...
So which of you is causing what?
Today is the first day since finding out I’m pregnant that I’ve felt really awful with the fibro too. I can’t tell what symptoms are the pregnancy and what are the fibro?!! I’m so tired that I swear I’ve fallen asleep with my eyes open a few times today already. I can’t stand for more than 10 minutes or my knees, hips and tummy start aching severely. To...
So it’s been a little while since I’ve done an update, and what a big bit of news I have. The past couple of months I have been super stressed, and super cranky. Then the last 3 weeks I have had continuous nausea. Thought that it was all because I was stressed but last week I found out I’m pregnant. This create a whole world of anxiety, not just because I wasn’t planning...
A Long Rest...
Sorry for the lack of posting recently. I’ve been ill with bronchitis so have been resting and only recently had the energy to go back to work without feeling like I’m going to collapse in a heap of asthma. So an update on the fibro….seeing as that’s what this blog is for :) I have been have some awful days and some really fantastic days. Let’s start with the bad...
So today has been rather frustrating as i cant seem to hold anything. I lost count by 9am how many times i dropped something. It’s so annoying cause everyone looks at you with that sort of half smirk half confused face. Despite that i’ve had a really good day. Kept positive and tried to just laugh with the joke. Finding something to focus on so you ignore the fact your fingers...
Welcome to a good day
Today has been a brilliant day. My boyfriend has been massaging my back with a gel he read can help, i’ll have to post later what the name is. Anyway, its really helped. I have had a lot less pain today, could walk without a limp and had a great day at work. After a few days of excrutiating pain this is a welcomed good day.
The most frustrating thing I find with my pain is the perception of others. A lot of people at work and in my personal life know I suffer from a pain syndrome that I will have for life. Yet on my bad days when I come in with a limp or can’t lift something or reach up to a shelf I get a look of surprise. I’m asked ‘What have you done?” and everyone thinks I just have yet...
Welcome to me and my life..
Hi there, So I guess I should introduce what this blog is about and who I am…. In this blog I will be posting about how my life is, what I do, how I feel, my good and bad days. There will be positive and negative posts. If you don’t like reading negative things then don’t check back here - this is going to be a brutally honest blog. My main reason to start this blog is my...
