So.. I’ve been told for a little while that I should write a blog about my battle with fibromyalgia. Even if not for anyone else to read, just for myself. A bit of a public diary shall we say.
My name is Kate, I’m 36 years old and live in Sunderland, UK. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 3 years ago after years suffering from pain in various parts of the body. I had physio on my dodgy knee, then got TMJ, then other things and finally we realised that it was the dreaded fibro.
And here we go…
What triggered me setting up the blog today was the fact I’ve been suffering from the worst flare I’ve ever had. It’s been bad for about 10 days now, and today I finally went to the doctor. Right now, it’s maybe not the time to write war and peace but hey, the first step is complete. And it feels pretty good!
