I have been miserable for almost two full years now, I just hurt and ache everywhere and I am so tired all the time. I didn't realize that take pain meds was acceptable for FM sufferers. My doctor has made no mention of them to me, and since I don't have any broken bones or stuff like that I never really thought about asking. (I think I am a kinda all or nothing personality) I get upset that my hubby doesn't seem to get just how hard taking care of the kids can be when it all I can do to get out of bed, I have friends who harrass me cause I need to get out and exercise with the kids. They don't seem to understand that I already push myself just to do what I am. I feel like I am a failure for not being more full of life for my kids sake. But anyways am I silly for not taking pain meds for this or do other people just kinda suffer though it all?
