Crab apple out the front of Toad Hall.
I've just been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. We're not 100% sure of the diagnosis and shall get a second opinion but the chances are it is right. The good news has been the definite ruling out of far worse conditions. Slowly over the last year or so I've found things more and more difficult day by day. The final straw for me was the day of the V and A preview when I wasn't sure I could make it up the stairs from the ladies loo. I did, but I doubted my ability. I crowned that with having to crawl to the door of the London cab to get out of it. Sometimes the pain makes me feel like crying, sometimes it's tolerable and just there in the background.
A Facebook friend sent me in the direction of this site as a way to explain this to others as well as myself, here.
I lie in bed most night with plans for the next day. Tomorrow I will this, tomorrow I will that and sadly often nothing gets done. I'm hoping I WILL get better and I WILL make more quilts. I'm hoping.
