I have been sick for too long, I can't go on like this any more. I am a 38year old single mom with two kids, my daughter is 16 and my son is 10. They are suffering because for the last 3 years I have been getting more and more,,,, worthless. I was diagnosed with fibromialgia about 3 years ago.
I am so tired all the time and for the last 2 months I have only gotten up to use the bathroom. In high school I used to play sports, Iwas president of student council. 5 years ago I was working full time and was still trying to get my degree to be a teacher. I was full of energy. Now I hate myself. I dont eat unless someone brings me something. My bowel movements are about every16 days. My legs hurt when I stand or if I sit up for more than a few min. They turn purple, pins and needles feelings, I have a cherry sized lump in my leg that burns and itches. About 4 years ago I noticed the purple legs while standing. That is also when I noticed several tiny lumps in my legs that only bothered me if they wets touched they would itch and burn. When I walk around for too long (10 min or so) my toes hurt a lot. I was told my hips aren't right and a physical theripest worked on them for a couple of months trying to move them back. My hips and tail bone hurt too. I never sit any more because of tail bone. I lay on the couch all the time. Please help me
