I am a 34 yr old woman who is wife and mother and poet. And I have fms/mfs . I have three children. My 15 yr old, has fms/mps. she was diagnosed last summer. She is suffering at school and at home. Nobody will give her meds that actually help her. she rebells against all the things I try to teach her. She follows me around complaing about every single pain in her body , she uses her illness sometimes to get out of helping around the house, but always manages to find energy to go places with her friends. Next is my 12 yr old. She doesn't sleep at night. Her grades have gone from a's to d's and f's. She flips out into these rages to total despondancey. she has asthma, exema and she is so very depressed. She has been showing signs that she might be joining my other daughter in this harsh journey. My husband works two fulltime jobs, so he isn't around much. When he isn't around , it can be a problem because he is impatient with us . and I think that he feels like what he doesn't know, it isn't real. I know he loves us in his way, but he leaves all the medical isses on my shoulders. He doesn't do much more than drive us to appointments. They spend alot of time yelling at each other and trying to make me fix everything. I spend alot of time talking to schools and docters and my family . trying to help them get them to see others point of view. My health has done a nosedive and there isn't even a support group where i live. I've screamed yelled , begged and pleaded. I've asked my husband to go to family counsling. He said that he wasn't the one with the problem, so he didn,t need a shrink. I don't know what to do. I can't sleep, even when I'm taking flexeril and pamelor. I've been at this stae fo emergancy for a strait year now. My grandmother and cousin just passed away and because of bills, I couldn't even be there. don't know how to go on. I am so very tired . Is there anyone out there how can relate. If not, could someone pray for my family?
