I wanted to ask a bit about where I am at with this illness (FM). Before being dxd with FM, I went through about 1 year of medical tests, including CT scans with dye (where I found out I was allergic to the dye), nuclear med scans, up to 13 vials of blood tests at one time, etc., etc. You all know what I'm talking about. So, I got my DX in June from my rheumy. Anyhoo, after all of the tests, and the usual stuff that you all know and love so well from friends, family, and the like...I am just too tired to look for a cure, or outside sources to manage what I feel. To explain, since my dx, I've had everyone in the world telling me what I should do, including exercise, diet, acupuncture, chiropractic, and God knows what else. The research I've done seems to indicate that there isn't one cure-all for everyone. Something that might work for one FM patient won't work for others, etc. And to be perfectly honest, I am not prepared to go on a search for expensive and exhausting ways to manage what I feel on a daily basis. I find that I have just about enough strength to make it thru the week at work, and sometimes I need a day off just to do that. Which, to me, means I don't have the energy or extra money to see a nutritionist, chiropractor, or whatever my friends think I should see this week. This doesn't mean that I don't want to get better. I don't enjoy having this dd, or like the attention it brings. It just means I don't want to waste time on something that may not work. I guess the question is...has anyone else went through this? Is it temporary? How did you get past this? Thanks for listening. Bubba PS: Sorry if this post rambles a bit. I have a pretty big headache right now...so I guess I'll blame it on that.
