A Young Girl Trapped in an Old Body

Hello again~ so, everybody tells me that I'm one of the youngest fibro sufferers they've ever met. And you know what? It SUCKS. I'm 17 years old and I'm bed bound, have to use a shower chair, and am getting a cane. I can't do anything people my age do. And because people my age are so immature, when I was diagnosed and started homeschooling, all my friends left me. They couldn't bother with someone with a disease like this. I was already struggling with the diagnosis and that was just like a second knife. But now I prefer being alone. I'm happy staying in with my mom because I can complain to her about the pain and she doesn't get mad. And I've heard so many people say "people who are diagnosed younger have a better chance at getting better." Do you know what I say to that? BULLSHIT. There are no meds for people under 18 that will help fibro. And people who are diagnosed older have gotten to live their life. I always worry what will become of my life. I want to go to nursing school, but will I be able to? Will I be able to have a job? I don't want to have to rely on others or go on disability. I just want a good life. Who knows…
