I was diagnosed with FM/CFS 3 yrs ago. I dealt with it fairly well for the first 2 yrs. Since January I have been on a steady downhill spiral. I am employed full time and have a husband who is not 100% onboard with FM. I have 2 daughters age 19 & 14. My 19 yr old has been away at college for the last 9 months. She is my biggest help, however obviously is not here on a constant basis. My hubby helps some, but is not sympathetic to my exhaustion and pain. He tends to ignore it for the most part. On most days now I have to drag myself out of bed to go to work. i have to fight to stay awake all day at my desk and pray 5:00 gets here fast so I can go home and crash. i am in constant pain all over my body. I cannot stand this any longer and have to find a better way to cope with my life. i am not in a position to give up. I am currently taking Vicotin (sometimes 5 times a day), Cymbalta (3x a day) and Xanax (2x a day). I have a dr's appt tomorrow and want to lay it all on the line and revisit all of it. I am obsessed with this sight and always find answers, but I need some help with what direction I should go and what I should request from my Dr. as a new direction of treatment.
