Well sorry to here your trouble and the response from your DOC is typical of mnay well meaning docs but it will have its good moments too. I had to medically retire in 2004 after fighting to stay on the job used up all my extra perks andstill no end in sight at the time my doc thought I was fighting a very nasty flu cycle. Well 14 months later no improvement and she and colleauge finally concluded that i had fibro (32 pills 4 times a day not an ounce of pain relief or energy to boot. My husband left me , my friends without a backward glance left and I was at an Internet cafe and total stranger now best friend took the time to sit and hear me out.. so there are angels here on Earth.View Thread
hello welcome to the FM world, just to let you know that never give up believing that we will find a cure. I know when the pain and exhaustion hit its easy to forget that others have walked in your shoes so to speak. First off get a real good book or online info source for yourself.
I am thankful for the countless words of encouragement over the last 20 years from friends online and out in the real world. Tears have been shed , hair pulled mentally but without them I wouldhave lost my waay many times over.View Thread
