Had a pretty rough night last night. I forgot to take my pain blocker and ended up awake until 1:45am this morning at which point I took them. Now I am so tired I could drop,. Tea time to wake up again.
I hate Fibro it is the bein of my existence.

Thank you ladies for the welcome to the group. I hope that I will be able to contribute on a regular basis. I do get busy at times and with Fibro fog I do tend to forget things with out a trigger of some kind.
I wish you all a wonderful weekend and to my friends here in Canada, Happy Thanksgiving.
"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm! P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!
Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL

and to the team. I an't tell you how long I have had FM but I do know I was affected by it in the 80's. Difficult to pin point when one works the night (3rd) shift as fatigue and lack of sleep are common on that shift. I have gone through many different meds and now use Restoril for sleep and Tramadol for the pain. Sandy is right that each one of us are doing what we can to get through the day.
Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner. Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

Was diagnosed with this nasty ailment almost 30 years ago. It has been a tough go in life wiht it and the many challenges that come with having FM and CFS along with other health issues. Life is a challenge.
I ended up adopting my first grand child and was working full time with a new born on my hands. Then was in a near fatal accident with my pick up truck. Life took a nasty turn for me. I had to head back to Canada to get health care that would help me as it was not available to due to the fact that I had been in an accident and did not have extra insurance to cover me. Thanks to my Canada my home land I was able to come back and get the health care needed. I am a survivor with my fibro. My son and I are now on our own with him being my care giver. He is almost a teenager now and says " I am tired of you being sick mom" I just want you to get better. Bless his heart he does so much to help.
The pain some days, the fogs on other days, the barometric pressure changes and so then does my pain. Swimming is a good thing and watching your diet. So many things affect those of us with Fibro that we have to use common sense and a Good routine that you Stick to and you can normally manage all right. I take Gabapentin and Clonzepam and they seem to keep me on the even keel most of the time. I have used Amytriplyne and Noratryptaline and they are of no use to me. I have used Cymbalta and found it useless also. So I live with this disease knowing I will never get back to normal but can have good days and be a Survivor with it and I can manage well.
