One of the hardest things about fibro and cfs for me, is the feeling of no longer knowing who you are and no longer being the person you once were.
I remember being a fun, outgoing and hard working woman and mother. This seems like a life time ago. Today I am quiet, housebound and in my eyes no use to anyone, especially my children.
Many a day I lie in bed and cry myself to sleep, wracked with guilt that I am no longer the mother I once was. So yes fibro and cfs to cause pain and heartache in more ways than one.
