They should list guilt under the description of Fibromyalgia. 1. Pain 2. Fatigue 3. Guilt I know what you are talking about. I have spent so many years trying to overcome it and some days I still struggle.
My heart aches for you. I hate the mood changes and meds changes too. I started on cymbalta to replace zoloft and has helped a lot. But I also have seasonal mood disorders and have been off and on grumpy-angry these last weeks. Plus the change from summer to school, so I went from a houseful to just half day kindergartner. I should be delighted.
I will pray for your move. I hope you have a good group of people, church or people your dh works with, to help pack. And make sure the family know when you move out there, there is a chance of the stress of the move setting you back. But then, if it is a good supportive environment, and they are helping, hopefully you will be able to recover from the set back and start to have more good days.
Sounds like some people I know. The spouses and families of loved ones with FMS need a support group to educate them on what is really going on.
My parents have "over" supported me, to the extent where they are telling me to try something new every week. I can't even count how many books about fms and pain, and cfs I have. But they have good intentions, just over bearing sometimes.
My hubby had cancer back in 2001 so he knows what it feels like to hurt like that and have no energy. He says cancer was easier because it didn't last as long.
My brother and his wife, and my sister and her hubby, and my best friend, all thought I was faking, lazy, I don't know what all and why. But I can't post that on my blog. I have fogiven, and sometimes have to re-forgive them and our relationships are good right now.
Would you be interested in writing a blog entry in more detail about your support and lack of support? Things that were good that helped, things that hurt?View Thread
Fell. Again. Ugh. Sat down on chair on front porch while talking to my dad and went straight off the side into the evergreen bushes, chair and all. Besides some scrapes and bruises, got a nice knot on my already injured knee. Guess that is a blessing"026at least I am not crippled on both sides. LOL. The boys would have loved to have it recorded to put on AFV. Pretty funny trying to get out of a chair, thick in the bushes. Dad almost had to rig up some kind of crane!
PAIN ! All over. Not just where the bruises are, oh my word. Did I get hit by a semi after I fell? Maybe I was out of it and just wasn't aware of a truck crushing my entire body. Boy, oh boy. Isn't fibro fun!View Thread
I have a blog where I have included a fibro journal on it. I am at the point where I need to talk about how people...mostly family, did not believe me. I'm still not sure if that has changed to be honest. I don't want to post about that and risk upsetting any of them. Would anyone want to guest post about that?

My massage therapist did some myofascial massage on me this summer. Super painful, the most pain I've ever experienced, included child birth, of course I opted for drugs and epidural. I can't think of the exact name of the massage. I did feel a ton better the day after, and had soaked in an epson salt bath. The next day after that, over did it and injured my knee. 2 1/2 months later, have injured the same knee twice since then, lol. Guess she really loosened up some tissue and made my knee more wobbly? I need to go back. Took a big fall yesterday and worried about pain with the bruises. btw, I'm not even 40 yet, just thought I'd throw that in since this message makes me sound so much older. I guess FMS should be called an aging syndrome, just not outwardly so. lolView Thread
What kind of shots do you get? I was told because I have FMS the trigger shots wouldn't help any, or something like that. My brain doesn't work, so I can't remember exactly what the doc said, but it was along those lines.View Thread
It depends on the temperature of the water. It is important that the water is warmer, the same temp that you would have it for people with arthritis. Otherwise, yes, you feel horrible, well, at least some of us do. If it is at the right temp, being in the water is so helpful. You get your stretches in and it doesn't hurt to move as much! Oh, if only we could all have an indoor heated pool. And throw in a hot tub and massage therapist, too.View Thread
