Default Cuz I need more [email protected]#$%& problems!

Okay, so I've had pretty bad pain for years now. I always assumed it was fibromyalgia as my mom has it and our pain is similar. Now that I'm working, the pain is so much worse. standing all day=blow.

As it turns out I do have fibromyalgia. (yes I posted over in the dieting with obstacles forum ) and maybe also myositis which causes your immune system to attack otherwise healthy muscles and causes pain and inflamation.

She says it looks like I have that, but I don't WANT to have it, cuz over time I guess it can cause your heart and lungs to fail....???? AUGH.

I'm so sad right now.

I WENT hoping to get something for the pain, but she refused me pain meds saying that giving me pain meds would 'take the edge off' but ultimately be a 'disservice' to me.

I cried when she said that. work is so hard. at least she gave me a note saying that i could sit at work.
