Back to Spark and Fibromyalgia
Tuesday, February 26, 2013
Well, I've been gone approximately 140 days and have managed to gain more weight...putting me at my highest weight of 426 pounds. I'm not going to lie and say I'm happy and everything is going to be okay because I don't know that it will be. I found out today I have fibromyalgia. I've been in pain a very long time now but thought I was crazy for hurting EVERYWHERE...Thought my doctor would say I'm just a hypochondriac...But today when I told her where I was hurting and for how long...and how I've pushed through just to get through my school bus runs every day, she said let's check you out. After gently applying pressure to seeveral areas of my body, she determined that I have fibromyalgia as with every touch, she was causing me additional pain. That said, we have a plan of action that includes medication, Savella, and acupuncture. I refuse to let this thing get to me. I can still lose weight and get healthy and that's why I am here. I need help. I need my SparkFriends and I'm sorry I left at all. Holding my head high and moving forward with a good attitude, I refuse to be defeated!
