I’m not sure if the confusion and lack of focus I am experiencing is what’s commonly referred to as “fibro fog”, or if I am just still in shock over the diagnosis. I’ve coursed through a wave of emotions in the past week; relief, shame, hope, self-pity, denial, anger, defiance (it literally took me 10 minutes to think of this word – stupid effing fog).
It’s one thing to have your body be a total wreck, but quite another to have your mind so far out in lala land that it’s downright SCARY.
· What if this doesn’t go away?
· How can I continue to work?
· How will I function day-to-day?
· What the hell is going on?
· Is there a cure?
· Is there a cause?
This is a scary, dark place to be. I truly wouldn’t wish this on anyone.
