100 symptomer

Det leve med sykdommen Fibromyalgi er ikke noe enkelt. Det innebrer dager som er fylt med smerter og alle de andre problemene som flger med. Ofte er smertene s intense at tanken p bevege seg ut av sengen er alt for mye tenke. Det frer med at man m ta smertestillende for holde smertene noen lunde i sjakk. Med smertestillende s mener jeg ikke paracet eller ibux. Her m det sterkere ting til. Dessverre.

Men jeg har allerede skrevet mange innlegg om hvordan det er leve med Fibromyalgi. Og idag s fant jeg en liste med 100 symptomer p sykdommen. Og jeg tenkte vise dere den listen.

Eg trur ikkje vi som ikkje har fibromylagi virkelig ka forst kor tft og krevande det er ha den sjukdommen. Snn er det nok med alle sjukdommar, ein kan ikkje forst 100% uten at ein har vert gjennom det sjlv. Men det vil ikkje sei at folk ikkje kan prve forst.

Smerter og depresjon er ein stor del av livet mitt ogs, s i ei mikroskoskopisk grad veit eg korleis du har det. Eg kan ikkje samanligne smertene mine med det du gr igjennom, men eg veit vertefall korleis det er ha ein kvardag som er prega av smerter og depresjon.

Som eg skreiv i ein kommentar tidligare, eg kan ikkje forst 100% korleis du har det og ka du gr gjennom ang denne sjukdommen, men eg vil virkelig prve forst! Eg vil sttte deg, at du lener deg p meg nr det buttar imot! Eg vil du skal vete at eg lytter alltid, om eg kanskje ikkje forstr s lytter eg. Og eg lre ut i fr alt du er villig til fortelle meg :)

Du er sterk Sta mi, du gir ikkje opp uansett kor livet mtte butte imot!

Eg er stolt over deg Jenta mi! <3

Det e virkelig en sjukdom. Det e ekte. d e heilt for jvlig leve med. Eg unna ikkje min verste fiende leve me fibromyalgi , men samtidig s e d fristandes la dei som meina vi bare syte f prve ei uke me fibromyalgi. S skulle dei ftt sett korleis d virkeli e ka skade d virkelig gjr p en person.

Du har smerte depresjon , s du har jo en liten anelse om korleis d kan vre leve me fibro. Men samtidi s kan ikkje du sette deg inni d i d heile tatt.

Men eg kan hjelpe deg me prve forst korleis d e. Eg kan forklare alt du lure p alt du vil vite. Eg gjr d eg kan for at du skal kunne forst best mulig korleis eg har det.
