    It has been several months since I posted on this website and it is with great sorry that I sit here and type that my husband took his life last week due to the agony and pain of this disease.

    I sincerely hope and pray for all of you that you find some relief from the pain and depression so you do not have to feel as desperate as he did that there was no one to help him.

    Please keep me and my family in your prayers during this tragic time.

    Dear Mtinash,

    There are no words...

    I am so sorry.

    This community will reach out to you and your family and let you know that we are sorry and sad...and that we will pray for you and your family.

    Losing a husband to this DD is the most heart-breaking sadness.

    I share your pain and I will witness your loss.

    I would like to share with you my favorite psalm - it has given me comfort many times in my life:

    The Lord is close to the broken-hearted and
    rescues those whose spirit is crushed. Psalms 34:18

    God be with you and may He give you comfort,

    I am so sorry that this DD has destroyed your family. In all honesty? I don't see it as your DH taking his life, I see it as our medical community failed him. I am so sorry you must go on without him. I don't advocate anyone taking their own life. I was engaged to someone with bipolar disorder and he threatened many times. However, even in all of your pain, we can only take comfort that he is no longer in his.

    To hell with the doctors in this country who look the other way, who don't care, and who are too damn afraid to treat pain. Your DH did what he thought he had too because his doctor's DIDN'T.

    Of course, I will pray for you and your family and I will contact my prayer warriers to do the same. Blessings to you and your family.

    I can not think of any words of comfort other than this has to be so devastating for you and your family.

    I have tears in my eyes as I am writing this.

    I am at a loss for words.

    But you are in my thoughts as well as a lot of people on this board.

    Please take care of yourself. You know where to come if you want to vent or need support.

    My condolences.

    Dear--It is true, there are no words right now--just knowing. Knowing that you are cared about, knowing that you are not truly alone. I call upon the angels to wrap their arms about you and hold you up during these dark days.

    With love and prayers tonight,

    We are also praying that God in His infinite wisdom will lay it on the hearts of more doctors to help those with FM. May God be with you and your family. Keep us posted on how everyone does. Remember we care.

    I am so sorry that your husband took his life. That must be devastating. You and your family are in my prayers. He is at peace now. It is a shame that the medical community is failing those of us who need their help.

    May he rest in peace.

    I am very sorry for your loss. I can understand why your husband would end his life, the pain and depression are just unbearable. I went to a doctor a few days ago that told my that my pain was from fibromyalgia, not lyme disease, that lyme disease was treated with a weeks worth of antibiotics after you were bitten. And that you never treat lyme with 2 years worth of antibiotics. She told me that the pain I have is all from fibromyagia and I would have to live with it. Well I was very depressed leaving her office, thinking if I have to live in this much pain and take this much medication for the rest of my life, I don't want it. And I am sorry to say I did try to overdose, I took a lot of pills when I went to bed. I guess I have built up a pretty good tolerance to them, because i'm still here. I don't know if I'm happy about that or not. So I really do understand. He was not thinking of you, or anyone else, just thinking of getting out of his pain. You know he loved you and your whole family.

    Take Care of yourself!

    Tears and sorrow flood my heart at your post. Please know that we are praying for you, and our hearts go out to you.

    I'd like to add a couple of comforting verse to the previous one:

    Psalm 40:1, "I waited patiently for the Lord' and He inclined unto me, and heard my cry."

    1 Peter 5:7, "Casting all your cares upon Him, for He careth for you."

    The Lord draws near to cradle you in His arms and comfort your sorrowing heart.

    I'll hold you up in my prayers. Hugs,

    I wish I had the words to ease your pain. Please know that you and your entire family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

    Please find comfort in knowing your husband is at peace in the arms of Jesus and he will watch over you and your family from Heaven.

    With deepest sympathy, Cindy

    My prayers are with you and your family. I can also understand the depression and pain he must have been in. There are soooo many of us on anti depressants and pain pills. It is a hard hard way to live.

    I hope that your heart heals one day.
