I have been off RX meds for my FMS for about 4 years. I use herbs, supplements, (I do use lodine once in awhile) I see a chiropractor all the time and also see a PT CT because of Celiac, so she keeps me on a diet that is good for my FMS too. I generally do okay. That doesn't mean I'm not kick ass tired some days and some days can't walk because my legs are too tired and painful. BUT, for the most part, I am soooo much better than I was 5 years ago. Probably the biggest reason I am better is that I got out of a very bad marriage and, though I swore off relationships, now have a fiance who REALLY supports me! Regardless of being happy in love and basically having a good life, I feel I am beginning to slip back into a depression. And actually, i think it has little to do with my FMS. I also have two kids who are high need and this year they have needed a lot more medical care.(One w/ ADD, anxiety, underweight AND a teenage girl. My son was also diagnosed with FMS this year, My girl had major oral surgery, my son almost lost a front tooth due to an ice skating fall and had a root canal. They both have special ed IEPs I need to manage.) That means more vigilance, more advocating for them at school and every where they spend their time AND it's cost a lot more money. The money is a problem because their father (the Ex) has a court order to pay half the med costs. He hasn't paid a dime since February and the kids have had major med and dental costs this year. So we're off to court this week to get him to pay. Anyway, I feel that all the stuff going on with my kids is starting to depress me. I've had tons of therapy, I understand what's going on. I understand that my FMS is not helping. But I just can't pull myself up. Soooo, I'm wondering about going on Cymablta or something. I took Cymbalta years ago when I was first diagnosed w/ FMS. It actually helped a lot. It helped my fatigue anyway, I don't remember if it helped with depression. But it got me moving. After about a year maybe two...don't remember, I just stopped and was okay. I feel like I need a little something to give me the little boost I need. BUT, I'm afraid to mess with my clean, no RX system. What do y'all think?
