I Am Now Living With FMS (Fibromyalgia)
5 min read


Just when i thought my life would start to calm itself down #lol in having picked up my #photography again with a #nikond3300.Everything has now kind of been tipped off the edge in the way of "FMS" Fibromyalgia Syndrome.Before i carry on
i know that some of my long term friends are going to scratch their heads #lol by asking where the hell:D (Big Grin) did this all come from !!!!!.


Nothing has ever seemed normal in the 47 years that i have spent on this planet :D (Big Grin)
and yet perhaps now having been on Deviant Art for nearly 10 years,i have been concealing what i now believe to be Fibromyalgia,one minute i am bouncing about with high levels of activity like posting art nearly every day :D (Big Grin) and then in between that i am having to inform this community about losing my wife to #cancer,followed by me dealing with so called long term chronic pain.

Which i have to say occurred long before my wife's cancer diagnosis in 2012 No, I disagree!
my late wife's passing was highly traumatic,and if you are any way dealing with the effects of chronic pain,there is no way in hell,are you able to fully support that of your partner,if they are terminally ill.


Everyone knows i am not the type of person who enjoys writing journals like this one,simply because my whole life has been a whole list of traumatic upheaval No, I disagree!
As with the fact i am now living with Fibromyalgia even though it appears to be non -inherited it is like other common illnesses/diseases septical to things like trauma or injury,and can be at times difficult to treat too.

Anyway out of the seven or more years that i have had to deal with this so called pain of mine in the way of #Fibromyalgia,there is also the factor where i am kind of 4 years into the #bereavement process of the loss of my wife/soulmate too.


Followed by anxiety,depression and a moderate learning disability as well,we don't often choose,or have a say in how our destinies are going to get mapped out for us,therefore in my case i suffered 6 major traumas where the final trauma.That of my wife's passing in 2013 is one of the  trigger factors for causing Fibromyalgia, i was also emotionally,physically,verbally, and sexually abused as a child too

Next i had my jaw broken in two places /hit with a poker/belt by my Dad,who never wanted children in the first place,and simply told my mum that if she ever had kids he would kill them.So having been constantly provoked by mum who knew what made him flip,simply tried to drown my sister in a bath full of water,failed and then seriously injured me in the process.

in all honesty if i hadn't had that opportunity of falling in love and where for once in my life i was able to forget about my past then maybe now it wouldn't still be now dealing with the onset of this Fibromyalgia !!!!!!!

So here we are after losing my wife to #breastcancer  in 2013 my #photography and #art has been up and down like a jack in a box.As of such my own health has taken a bit of a dive where i now have  osteoarthritis,anxiety and #depression,what keeps me from climbing four walls #lol well you only have to look at my #photography and #art only to see this keeps me in one piece.


Moving on even though i kind of vanished from DA for a short while,this is the place that kind of catapulted my art to where it is now,and as of such it is going to be 10 years in August that i joined as a member.So what happens next will i carry on creating art ? as in having osteoarthritis this does in some respect,restrict as and what i am able to do.


The good news is that my passion for photography is making a comeback having taken ownership of a Nikon D3300 at the start of the year,so far i have only added two new images from this camera to my DA gallery,as i would still like to keep past work that i have done over the years. And finally to give my watchers and friends a taster in what lies ahead with me as both an artist/photographer i am going to share some new images below taken with the D3300

A Warm Hello To New And Old Friends

In August of this year it will be precisely 10 years since I joined the deviant art community,as of now although i haven't been an active member for quite some time.I had thought about closing my account,but then again from next year i will be kind of celebrating 40 years as an artist :) which for me is quite an achievement.As with me being a member of this community for nearly 10 years
it's only fair that i try to give something back in the way of having the core symbol next to my username :) :)

And finally my passion for photography which has been with me since i started taking photos in 1985,is back with me now having a Nikon D3300,along with a Wacom Intuos 3

i am not one for shouting through the roof tops every-time i see a jump in page views on my deviant art page,considering i was only very active on here at the start of this year


I owe a lot to deviant art and to the friends i have made on here over the years such

as #davincipoppalag (David) #deb-e-ann (Debbie) #johnnygoodboy (Jonathan) #newcastlemale (Graeme)


I work had at self promoting my art so its not surprising that a majority of the views on my art are from outside of DA which now stands at around 186,000,218.As with the recent jump on views on my main deviant page i have had at least 1,000 views in about 2 days as on average i get about 40 -70 on a daily basis.I am also slowly uploading new art which can already be seen on places like instagram 


I still don't have a camera but are fortunate that i have tons of images on an external hard drive,this year has finally seen me being able to start selling my images and so far have made about 4 sales 

As we say more or less good bye to 2015, i am hoping that from next year i can become more active within this community, as creating and sharing my art keeps me in one piece #lol 


i was saddened to hear that one of my long time friends David (davincipoppalag) lost his wife back in June ,therefore David if you are reading this you were there for me when i lost my wife in 2013 so if ever you need to chat or talk,then i will do my best to be there for you as friend too.
