This is day 17 of taking 600mg. of guaifenesin in am and pm. Yesterday was incredible, and today seems to be starting the same...it's just like the book said it would be. My energy was better than it has been in years. I was actually able to do laundry, vacuum, mop, and dream about going back to work. I have also been off effexor for 10 days after slowly tapering off. I am so thankful for the energy and bright mood I could cry. Thank you, thank you, Lord!!!!! Just to have a day like yesterday gives me hope that there may be more. I am also watching my diet. Doing low carb. I hope all of you will read "What Your Doctor May Not Tell YOu About FIBROMYALGIA", BY R. Paul St. Amand, M.D., and Claudia Craig Marek. Maybe yesterday was just a fluke out of the blue, but just maybe this guai thing is for real. Lord knows, I've tried everything else. My heart goes out to everyone with fm/cfs. It breaks my heart to see how so many people are suffering and have lost any normalcy in their lives. I feel a reaL KINSHIP with all of you. "God Bless!"
