I've had a run of what I have called 'rolling mini flareups' this year, but they have been caused by needing surgery (separate problem) and it being constantly changed, dates/times/surgeon/procedure/etc/etc and the stress has been unbelievable and I know pre-Fibro none of this would have bothered me too much other than be a pita. As we all know, stress is not our friend at the best of times but this year these episodes have hit one after the other with no in-between times to recharge, before the next one strikes.
I mentioned to the most recent surgeon and admin lady about Fibro hoping they might be a little empathetic, but that quickly backfired and the admin lady was just plain horrible and I think delighted in her new-found control. So I won't try that again and in fact will seek out another surgeon in the future. Hospital staff were the eye-rolling type, although the anaesthetist and scrub nurse were understanding, so at least I had a small win. Now I'm working of getting back to 'my' normal.
Shelbel I was feeling a bit like you these last few months so truly understand, do you think this whole Covid thing is behind it? Here we've been in lockdown since June and I'm not a social butterfly, but the last couple of weeks have been a bit much, and I put it down to starting to put the whole surgery debacle behind me.
Keep in touch here because at least we understand what you have to live with, whereas other people...well, they just roll their eyes and think 'they' are having a bad day. Huh!!!
