About me

Hi I have had fibromyalgia for 15 years. like millions of other people around the world it took about 10 years to get a diagnosis.  Please see my first post about how this came about.

I am a registered nurse prescriber and I am currently on long-term leave from work due to severe recurrent flares. I have just finished my MSc modules and I was due to start my dissertation in October 2016. Unfortunately it doesn\'t look like this will ever happen now

I don\'t know if I will ever return to permanent work as flares are too unpredictable and frequent. Therefore, to fill my time, I have decided to write about my experiences in my blog.

I hope you find my pages interesting and informative. I write my experiences as a normal person living with this condition but hope to bring good evidence based knowledge to my blog.

Thanks for reading.

I am a registered nurse practitioner. I have worked in primary care for 17 years and have had fibromyalgia for 15 years. I am exhausted and in pain but positive there is something new around the corner.
