ive had fibro for about 7 years now, well prob longer but diagnosed then. i was put on duloxatine for two years. they changed my life but not for the better. i started to sleep all the time i didnt care about anything or anyone i became a person i wasnt really. when my daughter got married two years ago and i had no emotion whatsoever it began to dawn on me that something was wrong. i had been living in a weird world for too long and decided there and then to change. i stopped taking this awful drug (cold turkey) and slowly but surely my life started to return to normal. when i say normal i mean a life with pain. these drugs stopped the pain but also completly changed the person i am. two years on and i have lived with the pain with the knowledge that i am back to the real me. a nice caring mother of two with responsibilities.. i now cry again and feel emotion. clean up my house that i was always so proud of and have settled down and met a lovely man who has asked me to marry him. i was scared to go back on any form of medication but after no sleep and so much pain i caved in. ive been put on naproxen and amatriptalyne and have finally had a good nights sleep. at the first signs of them affecting my mental health i will be stopping tho. i will never go there again. not a nice place to be.
