    I have had fms for almost 8 years. Severe pain, bedridden much of my married life. Typical drugs treat me horrible: antidepressants, anti-inflammatories. Last resort was subutex, a pain killer. It has kept me out of the ER and given me back my life. I tell my psychiatrist that it causes some anxiety. He gave meds to help.

    So what would you choose?

    This issue will require therapy, but what do you think friends?

    Seems like all of us have anxiety/depression issues.

    I would take whatever medications made my life liveable. It's up to you. I myself hate to be bedridden, so I take quite a variety of meds to keep me going. I hate the meds too. I wish I didn't have to take them. Once upon a time, seems like in a another lifetime ago, I rarely even took asprin.

    Good luck and I hope you are doing okay.

    Remember! Jesus loves you!

    I would absolutely choose the medications.

    Congratulations on finding something that works.

    Take care.

    we spoke yesterday. I'm watching Padre Pio on TV now on EWTN. He had the gift of healing. I hope you get this network.
