This is just a short post to update you on my health. I went to my doctor today and was formally diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I’ve been battling the symptoms for some time, and I can’t even begin to tell you how many tests and appointments I went through until we could definitively name it as fibromyalgia. This means I am now bipolar II with major depressive disorder, chronic migraine and fibromyalgia.
Considering how bad my depression has been of late, I am honestly handling the diagnosis well. I pretty much knew that was going to be the diagnosis, so I was prepared. I’m glad we can now begin the task of getting me back to feeling good. I’m still really tired, physically and mentally. So much has been going on and I really need to focus on self care and not worrying about things beyond my control.
I’m incredibly grateful for the people I’ve “met” through the WordPress/online community. You have all become a part of my support system. Take Care!
