I am new to all of this and am really hoping to make some friends on here that know exactly what I am going through!! I have tried talking to my family and friends, but no one really seems to understand! My boyfriend is trying so hard to understand, but not real sure he really gets it. I was diagnosed with neuropathy and fibromyalgia back in March of this year, on top of all my other medical issues. I am 31 and have a 2 year old daughter and not so sure how much more I can handle!! I am open to any advice or tips to help, I feel like such a bad mother cause I can't get down and play with my little girl like I should and everyday becomes more of a challenge for me! Not sure what else to say at this point, there is so much running through my mind but, I am sure something else will come to me!View Thread
Thank you for your reply! I am totally understanding that it is No fun, lol. My docs put me on Cymbalta as well, but at the end of last month, I had to see my doc again cause I was getting very depressed and aggrivated at any little thing, so he told me that my depression had returned and wanted to change my meds on me again...that gets very frusterating as well!! I have been off of caffine for about 3 months now and do not eat much chocolate either, here the past few weeks I have been fighting terrible headaches again and not sure if its just cause of all the stress and the fact that I don't ever get any good sleep cause of all the tossing and turning I do at night from the pain or a combo of everything. My boyfriend is so wonderful...he knows that I am in constant pain and all and tries to do what he can for me, but there are times that he just does nothing, cause he doesn't know what to do...and I don't blame him, I try to tell him that there really isn't anything that he can do, except be there for me when I need him! He has gotten used to opening things for me and cutting stuff for me, even though I haven't gotten used to asking for the help...I feel like a burden when I need help. Anyways, thank you for listening and replying...I hope to be able to chat again, and I am always willing to listen as well if you need to chat!!! Thanks again!View Thread
