Yuck, what a sorry day! Wish I had words of wisdom, but I know from personal experience life is too short to drink bad wine and WAY too short to suffer daily in a job.
Kudos to you for trying, but if I were in your shoes, I would be outta there. Economy stinks, it is hard finding work, but if you can do it financially, leave. Consider it part of caring for yourself, which it most certainly is.
My pain doc has prescribed Nuvigil for me as well. I have not wanted to take it...afraid of addiction, feeling too amped, etc. I find that if I keep my pain under control my fatigue is less, but I would really rather NOT take the pain meds--talk about addiction! They really do help, though.
I will get my Nuvigil prescription today, and give it a try tomorrow and will let you know. On bad days I often wonder if I would be able to keep working, and I want and need to keep working:) Glad you are feeling well! Pam in SavannahView Thread
I was so active before FM, and after a year of letting a regular exercise routine go, I am trying to get back at it. I can't run or do pilates these days, but walking and yoga are my new favorites. I just wish I could figure out my Ipod Shuffle...may have to go back to my old MP3 player:) PamView Thread
