well here goes, tada my first journal entry........lol. I am Michelle and live in northern manitoba canada. I live on the 55th parelle. There are no support groups here and fibro is not thought of here as much of an illness. I usually don't tell people I have fibro, but people do notice I am very stiff at times and don't have the energy to do all the fun stuff I used to do. I am currently on a lot of new medications......... list is..... arthrotec, tramodone, pristiu and thyroid meds. I feel like I am a poster child for the big pharm. God knows they may be getting rich off of me. I just started some of these new meds two days ago so hopefully I see a change. Oh I forgot I need to zoplicone to sleep and sometimes that does not work. I often wonder when you feel so tired and listless why is it you can't sleep, seems like a cruel joke. I am super luck I have an awesome hubby named Ron and he takes such good care of me. We have been married for 27 years it will be in December. I hate this illness but am so very thankfull for what I have today. I will never give up and will likely try whatever it takes to feel better. I do not work anymore so this gives me some time and I hope to make some great friends here.
hugs to all,
