I am new here. So I guess I will just vent a little and see how other people handle this. I guess I vented alot I was dianosed with FM & depression a little over 2 years ago. I thought after the flare up I would be fine. That is what I get for thinking. After 1 year of fighting this monster my husband left because he couldn't stand me being sick any more. People look at you and you aren't black and blue, or have a cast on and do not think that this is a "real" dease. I have developed memory loss durning flare ups. I mean bad. I have been at my job for 5 years and come into work and am blank. I am afraid to drive, so I have to take off work once again. Being alone that hurts finacilly, that causes stress and there goes the circle. Does anyone have consintration problems? .
