I'm also a spoonie, which is a shorthand way of saying I have invisible disabilities (if you're not familiar with Spoon Theory...), in my case, depression, anxiety, migraine, anemia, asthma, GERD, IBS, ulnar tunnel syndrome, and I've just been diagnosed with fibromyalgia.
I'm exhausted all of the time, and I ache all over all of the time. I have severe pain in my left arm, back, and neck. I have good days and bad days, and I work when I can, but it's getting harder and harder to work more than 2 hours/day. I'm not making enough money to live on, despite being painfully frugal.
My doctor who just diagnosed me with fibromyalgia thinks we get the pain dialed back enough so I can work more. It's going to take a while though. And I don't have enough money to hold out for very long.
Could you help me out so I don't have to go live under a bridge?
