Hi. Am new:wave:
Nice to meet you all.
I’ve been having symptoms for? 5years that were thought to be migranes/anxiety, but now developing a lot of quite advanced MS symptoms.
Worsening really for last 2 years when been fighting and screaming for a doctor to do something it feels like.
Rheumatology said definitely fibromyalgia, but probably something else autoimmune and neurological.
Finally seen a neurologist who did Mri which shows inflammation in brain. Having LP this week.
Is there any single parents of teenagers in the same boat? I’ve not explained to them yet as don’t know what type etc in order to give them info. But, have ordered a few leaflets from here, if they’ll read them.
I’m obviously very ill. But, they really don’t seem to care, and are making my life hell.
It’s incredibly lonely being so ill and being stuck with horrid teens, with an abusive ex ‘father’, who actually manage to make symptoms worse daily.
I was wondering if anybody knows of anything that was available for them, like councillors or a different forum? They don’t seem to want to care or listen to anything I say, but, if pushed in direction of something more for teenagers, might actually take notice and behave like decent mini humans.
There’s also the gut wrenching fact that I have to give up my job. Going through ill health retirement now. I love(d) my job. The way people are treating me is disgusting. Treated like a ‘dole bum’, which of course is worse as am also a single parent.
I’m sorry for ‘vomiting’ my feelings all over your lovely thread. I promise I can be happy and jolly sometimes
