Hi! Newbie here. I've had fibro for 2 years (diagnosed) and I also have myofascial and chronic fatigue. I am on no medication due to an enzyme I have that interacts with SSRIs, muscle relaxants and benzos (after having serotonin syndrome). I am 28 and happily married for 7 years. We have no children but we are licensed adoptive parents and lately I've been worried about being a parent with fibro. Since most people have their own kids it's different but we're looking at introducing a child (aged 5-12) in our home in the future (hopefully) and I don't know if I can handle it mentally/emotionally/physically. We are both good with children and I know we would be great parents but Honestly, I don't know if I can handle the responsibility of being a full-time parent and I feel horrible for that, because my husband would like to have kids and I told him going into the marriage that if he wanted his own kids to find another woman, I love him enough to let him; but he stood by me knowing we had the option to adopt . I've accepted my fibro to a point. I've learned to listen to my body, I've gotten back in shape (somewhat) by training back in Taekwondo (did it before Fibro, still have set-backs), but trust me I'm not even close to 50%. I have no energy hardly. I am not reliable, nor can be relied upon (which SUCKS). I work part-time and it's a blessing, my job is tough on me but it keeps me with a purpose and motivated. I live in a rural area and the women who do have fibro/cfs here are older (4os-60s) which we have a connection and for that I am grateful, but the family thing is kind of out of all of our expertise. Thank you for reading, I know fibro varies from person to person. Also to throw some history about myself. I was a preemie (1lb 8oz @ birth, 4 months premature); there is a slight link but not definate, is there any others out there?? Blessings to all the warriors who fight to make each day liveable!
