I did a search on this topic before posting but I still needed to vent!!! It’s only been 6 months since I was diagnosed with Fibro but in the last 2 months, just days before I get my period, I feel absolutely horrible!!! I use to get PMS before but now it’s 10 times worse. I read that in other threads on this topic that people mentioned feeling this way about a week before their period or during ovulation but mine is 1-2 days before the big day! Two months ago I had to call out of work 1 day & last month it was 2 days. I get severe cramps, exhaustion, back pain, headaches, diarrhea, nauseous, depression...you name it, I get it! But worse of all, I feel like I could scream at someone for just saying “Hello” to me. Last month I called out of work the additional day because I knew that I wouldn’t be able to deal with the pressure & the people at work. I was afraid of going in there & telling everyone what I really thought of them. I hate this because I don't like to be a nasty person!!! I don’t know what to do about work. If I keep calling out like this, I'm afraid my boss is going to say something to me yet I CAN’T work or for that matter, be around people when I feel like this. I almost feel like that girl in the Exorcist Sorry for venting but the cramps, lower back pain & depression started a few hours ago & it’s only getting worse! I hope you all are doing well today!!!
