This may seem like a stupid question, but I just had to ask anyway. My intense disappointment when I try yet another "thing" to help me with my FM, lumbar pain, bursitis, fatigue, brain fog, migrains. I must seem like a piece of work, LOL. Seriously, I do try to have a sense of humor and keep my cool, but depression, despair and anxiety is really staring to set in more than it usually does. Years ago, even with my FM I was still able to go take a half an hour walk, not I can't anymore because of bursitis in hips and other FM problems. I am now on my third chiropractor, went to physical therapy 3 times, water therapy twice, accupuncture twice, massage off and on. If you looked in my bedroom closet, I have so many supplements that I could open up my own health food store, it looks pathetic. The prescription meds had to be the worse of them all. Lots of weight gain with past antidepressants, side effects with muscle relaxants that I had to stop taking them. Vioxx and Zoloft almost sent me to the ER. Yet, each and every time I try to do something positive for my FM, I have high hopes that whatever I do will help me and sometimes it does for a short while, but nothing that is sustaining. I do have to say that a friend I work with who knows I have FM told me the other day that she feels I am such a strong person, she is aware of all the things I do to try to help myself and told me that I just don't realize my strength, tenacity and sense of humor. This made me feel better, but she also doesn't know how much I cry on my own. I am only 43 and am TIRED of hoping for the best and really not getting that. Little by little my will is going and not sure what next to do. Hugs, Chelz.
