I have pain every day but it is manageable. I take Ultram regularly (all day long, in fact)and I still hurt but I've hurt for so long I'm used to it. However, the fatigue is what debilitates and controls my life. On the days when I simply cannot get out of bed, I have plenty of "well-wishers" who tell me "get up and do something, you'll feel better" or "Sally's mom's best friend's, daughter's cousin's neighbor" has FM and SHE says YOU have to get up and do something whether you want to or not, you'll feel so much better". Gee, thanks for the advice, I WOULD get up if I COULD. Do they think I'm just lying in bed for the fun of it? I read about all of the drugs to manage the pain, but is there anything I can take or do to manage this fatigue so that I can make it to work a 5 full days each week? I haven't worked a full week in a long time. My boss is very understanding, especially since I have a diagnosis, but he said he contacted HR to see what we can do to 'accomodate' me and now I'm scared I'll lose this job too. Everyone at work sees me hobbling along and I jokingly tell them I'm going to start crawling soon, but I don't complain about the pain, I just do my job as best I can. Am I protected under the ADA? And exactly what is that protection? Do anyone have any good websites I can look into? Thanks!
