I had a thought pop in my head regarding all the meds some of us are on. I keep reading about Fibromites being put on numerous medications for the thousands of symptoms that we seem to have. What I have a problem with is that disability claims are denied left and right. This leaves these same people with the problem of driving to and from work under the influence of drugs for pain, depression etc. Isn't this putting us and others on the road in danger? I am not on many meds myself, but the way this DD is headed I know I will be in the near future or not be able to move. Most meds make me extremely sleepy and I can feel the effects on my reactions etc. The other concern is CFS. Most mornings and afternoons I have to literally fight to stay awake behind the wheel. I come s close to dozing off that I look to see if I would hit anyone on a certain road and try to take back roads to avoid traffic (don't want to take anyone with me). My vision is also affected. I don't see things as they are sometimes and I have a real problem with lighting and shading. Going under a bridge for example, or the shades of a tree near the road. When it is raining it is the worst. I can barely make out lines in the road without straining and praying. I try and stick to one back route so I know it very well, but when fibro fog hits I can get lost on my own street let alone back roads. Riding with someone has not been an option as we are from all over and co-workers come from other areas. Did not mean for this to get this long. Anyway, does anyone else have these concerns and are we considered to be DWI? As you can probably tell, I worry alot!
