    Wow! It's been a long time since I've been here. I'm sure there are some older names that I will remember and new ones that I will learn.

    I just wanted to say hi.

    Oh, you're right, I didn't fill out the profile. I forgot. I used to be signed on as Tigger57, but changed it.

    I know how you feel, but I get angry a lot about by fibro. Last year I almost died because I was fentanyl and it built up in my system and I was slowly overdosing. I kept falling on my face and no one knew why. Finally, I went down and didn't get up. My brother tried calling me and couldn't reach me, and he knew how weak I had become, so he came to my house. I was unconscious on the floor. I went to the hospital and for 4 days in ICU, I was out of it. I finally ended up in a room and gradually came to. I did have one mega hallucination though... I thought people were trying to kill my brother and told him. He wanted to know who it was and I told him, "It's the Orange Kool-Aid Teenage Killers". Yep, I sure was out of it. The next day he came in and I told him to disregard everything I said the previous day. LOL At least I can laugh now. I ended up in the hospital for 3 weeks.

    I also had to give up my house and am now living in subsidized housing. Although it was very sad and I was kicking and screaming the whole way, it's turned out to be a good move for me. I'm in with a bunch of really nice elderly people (I'm only 51) and they fuss over me. My mom died 20 years ago, so it's kind of nice to have a lot of motherly older woman fussing over me.

    I'm on a couple of Yahoo support groups, but I remembered how much I used to like the message boards here. I don't really need to talk as much as I need to feel that I'm not alone. My doctors have been my biggest problem. Since I was in the hospital last year, I have new doctors and they don't want to prescribe anything for the pain, so I suffer a lot of the time. Like you, I wake up in pain sometimes.

    I had a good Thanksgiving, how about you.
