    It is so hard to not be able to do what you used to do - I have two young kids, and it's hard for me, but not nearly as hard as for you. But don't give up on trying to get better. You've been through the ringer with your doctors, no doubt, but here you might find out about some new things that you haven't tried. And they might help. I wish I had some good advice for you, but all I have to offer you at this point is a whole lot of sympathy, because I'm still searching for a treatment that works myself. But I have to think that lots of prescriptions are throwing your system way out of whack, and maybe you should see a naturopath to get balanced back out again.

    Hi Janet,
    I can see you have an overwhelming amount of things to cope with.I also know it is sad when we can't do the things we did in the past.Then the hardest part is when others treat us poorly like we have no problems.Ya they don't show,but they sure hurt.I am glad you reacted the way you did to that secretary.If she has FM she should know everyone can be different and she should be considerate to the fact that you have other problems.You were at your psychologist! Shame on her to treat you that way.I wish I could say something to take your physical and emotional pain away,but all I can say is that I understand and hope you will get all the support here that you can.Always remember your family still loves you no matter what.You hang in there and be good to yourself.

    I wish there was more I could do, just like everyone else here. I know you must feel so desperate at times, but please try to count the good moments when you can. My heart goes out to you, and I will include you in my prayers.
