I Would Like A Break, Please and Thank You

This is just a short post to update you on my health. I went to my doctor today and was formally diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I’ve been battling the symptoms for some time, and I can’t even begin to tell you how many tests and appointments I went through until we could definitively name it as fibromyalgia. This means I am now bipolar II with major depressive disorder, chronic migraine and fibromyalgia.

Considering how bad my depression has been of late, I am honestly handling the diagnosis well. I pretty much knew that was going to be the  diagnosis, so I was prepared. I’m glad we can now begin the task of getting me back to feeling good. I’m still really tired, physically and mentally. So much has been going on and I really need to focus on self care and not worrying about things beyond my control.

I’m incredibly grateful for the people I’ve “met” through the WordPress/online community. You have all become a part of my support system. Take Care!

  1. Thanks so much for the update, Lisa. Although I’m far from happy that you have fibromyalgia, at least you know your diagnosis and you can get better! I’m VERY proud of how you’re handling the diagnosis ,and by the tone of your post, I can tell that you are doing ***so well*** considering this news!

    Yes, focus on self care, and let us know how you’re doing when you can.
    (But no pressure/rush!!! You have enough going on!)
    sending you big-but-gentle (((hugs))))
