It’s hit me.

I knew it would hit post birth and was unsure how i would cope with having two children to look after now with one being a newborn,Yes i am in the middle of a fibromyalgia flare and know its only going to get worse before it gets better. I am struggling to hold my newborn son as my elbows, wrists and fingers hurt so much. I am crawling up the stairs by the end of the day as my knees are so painful and feel like they wont carry my weight.

I was diagnosed in 2011 after being hit with unexplained pain in 2010 following the birth of little man, It has not be an easy 4 years and had my good and bad days/weeks/months. I was/am determine to not let it beat me. I hold down a full time job (on mat leave at the minute) look after the daily running of our home and bring up too young children. I am not saying that i don’t spend full days on the sofa but as a family we have adapted, we  make these our family film days or little man will find toys and games that we can play together while i sit down. The other half sorts out lunch\dinner and lets me rest if his home from work.

I know over the coming weeks i am going to find daily life hard, the things people take for granted i struggle with but as i have done in the pass i WILL NOT let it beat me. I only have to look at my children to fight that bit harder.
