hi my names romey and iv never been here before its so great to find there are people going through the same thing as me! im 18 and last ausgust i was told i had fibromyalgia.im still in high school .well i lve in ireland so we call it secondary school, anyway i got fm and cudnt sit or leave the house i couldnt go to school.i was in 5th year i think u call that a 11th grade.i missed 3months of school nearly the whole year. the school told me to repeat & not go on to 6th year my last year .i scared to go outside i didnt want to go back to class but i didnt want to repeat.so this sept i went back to school. in 6th in ireland you sit your leaving cert exam. this decides if you can go to collage or not depending on the amount of points you get. it is pretty much the most important exam you can do in this county.my family told not to try this cause i missed much and i couldnt study cause i cant sit up for too long. what they were saying made sense but i didnt want fm to stop me from getting an education! so im doing the exam at the moment and i just have my maths to sit then im done ,i already know i got the passes i need and yesterday i my provisanal place in the collage i wanted! im so happy i just wanted to share.and let people know it can be done.my pain is still the same but im moving on !
