I am a bearer of this horrible condition, it is a debilitating, painful lifetime condition with no cure and very little help or understanding even from the medical field that diagnosis and no real long-term treatment that works.

Fibro has made my life incredibly hard. I can't remember the last good night sleep I had. I can't remember the last time I could enjoy a day out with my friends. Having fibro has caused me to become a shut in, has caused me to lose my quality of life.

I have chronic fibromyalgia. I am hanging onto my job by a thread. I have had alot of sick days as I wake up and I can barely walk or stand due to my muscles ceasing up and the pain throughout my body. Writing this I am fighting back tears as I am a single parent and I am afraid of what's going to become of me. If I go on the dole I will be expected to look for work with an illness I'll have to disclose and no employer will want to hire me.

I live with fibromyalgia along with several other conditions that goes alongside this dreadful condition. Our lives are stripped away from us and the every day stigma from judgmental people is unbearable.
I am unable to do simple daily chores, I can’t go out and feel happy, or comfortable. Outings are drs or specialist appointments.
I had to cease work over 3 years ago because of chronic pain, Chronic fatigue Syndrome, Severe IBS and Hip Bursitis. Fibromyalgia has ruined my quality of life, my happiness.
We deserve real help, NOT JUDGEMENT OR DENYAL.
