MDJunction to me

zooker"Hey I'm zooker,

I'm a single father of two, a survivor of sexual abuse, bipolar, PTSD and severe back pain from car accidents.

My goal on this forum will be to help the people that reach out, lend an ear when needed and offer my life experiences as advice. I have loved, I have lost and I am still here.

My abuse was between the age of 9 and 13 and my abuser was close to our family, a lot of people would say that she was teaching me life skills but after years of fighting with the trauma I have learned that I am here for a reason and trying to help others find they way is the best treatment I got.

When I was diagnosed (officially) with bipolar I started to research and found MDJunction and it's helped me a lot. I am on that forum every day and will devote more time to this one and try to get people the help they need.

Feel free to ask me a question on the site or through PM and I will be as open and honest as I possibly can.

Remember that you are not what the abuser made are stronger than that so stand up and take what is yours.

yours truly,

" (zooker)

It was one of those days I just felt so exhausted.  It was  so frustrating.  I feel guilty like I should be doing more but my body just doesn't feel like doing any morethan I need to to get through the day.  The headache and usual achiness didn't help either.  It felt like their was this electrical shock from the base of my head down my spine.  I try not to mention this stuff to people that I am close with cause I don't want them to think I want sympathy.  It would be nice though to feel free to just be open and honest about what is going on without wondering are they thinking I am trying to justify being lazy or a slacker.  That is the one thing with fibro. we can't see aha see here is the test or tests that say this is specifically what I have like my husband can with the xrays and test results of his back problems.  I guess we in the fibro. community as a whole need  to really emphasize to those we encounter who may doubt that what we are going through is real that just because we can't show that here is x or y from a test result at the present time doesn't mean a problem doesn't exist. Hopefully in the future there will be ways to more specifically point out that a particular person has fibro. Until then we need to advocate for ourselves. Hope I haven't been stepping on my soap box for too long.  Later. Take care all.  <gentle hugs> Cheryl
