Posted in Fibro, Personal


I spoke with a friend today and he gushed on and on about how a particular medication I’ve been on for months now and he just started is doing wonders for him.

I smiled and said all the right, happy things to say but on the inside I wanted to scream.

How is it that all these meds that help people feel better do absolutely nothing for me? Why am I constantly in pain when others get some relief? If only briefly…

Today I slept until 4pm. Four in the friggin afternoon because I just couldn’t deal/move. I took my meds and then proceeded to lay on the couch because my feet hurt too much to do anything else.

My friend offered to bring me dinner but the boys had eaten and I wasn’t hungry. Plus my house is a mess and I really REALLY did not feel like putting on pants.

Another med dose and a movie later and I’m feeling ok. Need to take something for my stomach and will probably be up all night but that’s just the way it goes.
