I'm quite new to this fibro thing. My doctor recently diagnosed me although I feel I have had it for years looking back at my health.
I have been on antidepressants for about 20 years and I'm currently on 375mg of venlafaxine. I went to see the psychiatrist (first time ever!) on Thursday and she thinks I should also take a different medication as well. She gave me a list and told me to look them up and decide which I would like to try. At the moment I'm plumping for Trazadone as it doesn't seem to make you put on weight.
I'm sick to death of feeling like this, like a big lazy slob!! all I want to do is sit around or sleep. Everything just feels like a huge effort and I've got a continuous dull headache. I'm full of self pity and hate myself.
I have had quite a lot of setbacks in my life but I always sprung up again, now I feel I don't have any spring or bounce left.
I feel like I am a burden on the rest of my family, my mum is in her 70's and she's had heart surgery twice and she has more go in her than me.
Sometimes I just feel is it all worth it.
