well it was good to find the site--a gift from God. Iwas finally dx with fibro 5 yrs ago when i changed docs.I am soooo tired of my sisters telling me that i appear druged, in a stare into space, often closin my eyes during conversations. I have one dr tell me i tested as early dementia--during a 2 yr bout of severe depression. I leave myself notes on the coffee pot for the next day activities and try to fix my thoughts on the moment i am in. Also keep a journal,try to read,and keep busy. ATthis moment I am experiencing an exacerbation of pain and spasms, all because my sis hugged me too tight. Tordal, muscle relaxants aren't helping. any thoughts or suggestions ?
