I have been through the mill with persistent, chronic pain that radiates. It began with sciatica that caused a tingling sensation from my left buttock down-now to my ankles. It has worsened by far. I frequently awake to use the poty and upon dispersing my wieght on my feet not being fully awke, i come crashing down to the floor as if i've lost feeling/control over my limbs. I even fell backwards cracking my head open on the closet door during one episode. My partner thinks i'mnuts however he really cares nothing fo me anyway. I think he'd be exstatic if i died.

I have fibromyalgia for 13 years next month. I am here if you need to talk. As for your partner, if they can't give you the support that you need right now, maybe it's time to say goodbye. You will find alot of support here on diabetic connect. Hugs.

There are many treatments for fibromyalgia and I would recommend you speak in all seriousness to your doctor. Sometimes they don't want to take us very seriously, and you need to make them listen. The fact that you have suffered bodily injury due to this shows it's not to be taken lightly.

What hurts more is what you say about your partner. Without a close support, there can be a loss of wanting to go on. Have you spoken to him about how you feel and what he thinks? I am a caregiver wife and I will admit, there are days when my husband just has too many aches and pains and I want to scream. But I love him and we work through those times. But we have to keep an open communication to do that.

My first wife had sciatica, a lot. And lbeing married to her for 25, I remember that it was NOT fun for her (or for me either).

I'm sorry about your abusive relationship. No one should have to go through that. The bruises will fade, but the psychological trauma takes quite a bit longer. (My wife couldn't inflict much in the way of physical abuse, but she seemed quite skilled in dishing out the emotional abuse on me.)

I have read your profile, and you seem to have a fantastic set of friends. I know that it doesn't make up for your physical and emotional trauma, but focus on their kindnesses to you.

Blessings to you and your friends
