    Hi 💜 I'm not super active here but I'm just so low today and I wasn't sure who would understand. I cried for hours yesterday, I'm just so fed up of being sick and in pain all the time. I feel like all I do is make things hard for people

    hi friends! I've been meaning to write out a post but have been too tired by the time I get home from work. I haven't been on here since November, so I thought I'd reintroduce myself.
    I'm Alexis and I'm 26 years old. I live in Arizona with my fiance, dog, cat & hedgehog. we're going to be taking over my childhood home when my parents retire in August and there's SO much to do to it. I'm bisexual and believe in the paranormal, law of attraction and am very spiritual.

    I've recently been diagnosed with Fibro and prescribed Cymbalta but I'm reading some things that make me hesitant to start it. Does anyone have experience with Cymbalta or possibly alternative treatments // tricks for decreasing your number of crippling flare ups? 🖤

    When you set your expectations low (much lower than you think you need to) but you're still unable to reach them. Over the years as I've gotten sicker I've gotten better at re-evaluating my threshold of activity (or so I thought). I only make the loosest of goals for the bare minimum of things in an attempt to avoid constant disappointment & crippling failure. When I reach them, it works well; I swallow a bit of disappointment while I accept the situation but at least I feel relieved or like I'v...  more

    Hello, friends, long time no see! Remember a while back when I asked about your experiences with Amitriptyline because I was about to start it, and then shortly after I went MIA here? Yeah, starting it is pretty much the reason I've not been on much.

    I'm a few months in now, and feeling better. I've written a post of my experiences going on it for migraines, insomnia, and digestive issues, along with a list of things I would have told my past self before starting it. Hopefully it will be helpf...  more

    Strap yourselves ladies, this is a long read but I appreciate any help 💛

    I have Severe Endometriosis and IC and I also suffer from nerve pain. This past year I have been having some new widespread pains (along with my endo and nerve pains and symptoms) that I assume is related to Fibromyalgia but I can't be sure.

    I can't exactly bring this theory up with a doctor because any doctor and/or speclialist I have seen so far is more focused on my Endo and blame everything on that, despite me descri...  more

    Lately the nerve pain in my feet (mainly my heels) has been getting worse. Doctors are thinking it's idiopathic neuropathy. I have Fibro too. How do you all deal with nerve pain? Find anything that works? I'm on lyrica but the help I get from it is limited. I can't stand for more than 3 minutes without pain. It's just driving me to the end of my sanity. 😢

    If I hear one more senior cry over missing there senior year Im going to loose it. I can't help but think, "Well, at least you didn't miss high school all together because you were in a treatment center or bed bound for months at a time." Someone please tell me Im not the only one wanting to scream at these healthy people!
