  • Hi this lack of sleep really drags us down doesnt it and makes us go over our problems I think alot of us can identify with you as family and friends so often dont understand and are not willing to try. my family find it hard and I am sure they think I could do more if I tried but at least on here there is always someone to talk to or listen message me anytime

  • Right so I managed two hrs sleep and now I have the stupid fibro chest pain.i am so glad to be on here to,as like you say everyone understands.i am thinking of trying to get myself in a position where I can raise awareness and publicity for us fibro peeps!

  • Fibro is a nightmare we have low seratonin. I take citalopram to help with sleep but it does not always work. Also with us our brains are always firing as we make glutamate and this binds to receptors and activates the brain. Even doing a small task other areas of our brain activate. I do meditate with a guided meditation which helps to sooth the mind. Because we don't sleep enough we have more pain. Vicious circle.
