I think the subject says everything. >.> For years and years, I've been tested for various pains. Pain in my abdomen, pain in my head, pain in my legs. I DO have chronic migraines (I think that diagnosis still stands?) and while I was always wishing they would find SOMETHING to treat in every MRI, CAT Scan, or X-ray, I also didn't want them to find anything. Who wants something bad in their brain?
I've had my Gall bladder and Appendix out (the gall bladder with reason... at 21 years old, I had gall stones. ^^; The nurses would say to me, You're far too young to have these problems!), but the pain persists. Lately it's been my legs.
Then, my grandma died. She was my last grandma... everyone else was gone, but that had happened when I was very young. She was born on Nov. 13th. I was born on Nov. 14th. You can imagine that we were close. She even bequeathed her $3,000 topaz ring to me, before all the arguing over jewelry could begin.
That's when everything got worse, though. I was paralyzed with pain, everywhere. Yesterday (June 17th) I went to my doctor for help. I'd had a migraine for 11 days and needed some sort of relief. I told her how much pain I was in, and how it had begun when my grandma passed away.
And that's when she mentioned fibromyalgia. Finally, a diagnosis! But I'm so afraid. What does this mean? Did I do something wrong? Why is everything happening (I must also say that my mom, after 17 years in remission, was again diagnosed with cancer)?
How do I deal with this? I'm sorry for the long, rambling post. I'm crying right now. I'm 26 years old, and most of my life has been lived in pain and fear. I have Asperger's Syndrome as well. Trust me, typing all this to you guys (though I'm sure you're WONDERFUL people... people just frighten me) is very difficult.
Well... thank you for reading, and putting up with me.
