Pain and more pain, stress and anxiety!

Have had fibro for many years. Allergic to painkillers so live on 3 anti-depressants a day. Back has been aching since Tuesday so am in incredible pain-plus relationship was finished Sunday so all in all not in a good place. Have found acupuncture does help, but can't afford that.

Fibro doesn't exist and I always look so well!!! Hate being on my own 24/7 and struggling so so much.

Well enough of that hope everyone is well have a brilliant Christmas and loads of gentle hugs Anni xxx

So sorry to hear you are struggling, and your relationship ending will be the last straw. Have you asked your gp about acupuncture, some time ago I had it at the hospital through the physio there. I think I had a course of six treatments and it helped enormously. Good luck and have a good Christmas, well the best you can under the circumstances x


I was struggling but relationship ending Sunday has been the last straw in absolute agony 24/7. Thanks you so much for your comments big hugs xx


Sorry to hear of your break up . I can totally empathise with your pain I too am allergic to all but paracetamol ... And really does that even count as a pain killer... Am on 2 anti depressants and a muscle relaxant but they are night meds during the day I suffer like you, my back which has never given me any trouble has decided to add its voice to the other bits of my body and has been causing me grief for a week, is it too much to ask for a daily epidural from the neck down........ :)

Hope you can have as merry a Christmas as is possible



that sounds perfect a daily epidural lol! will see my Dr on Monday hopefully. First time this week my back has started up to-how bizarre! thanks for your comments take care xxx


So sorry to hear what you are going through. I am also going through similar. Although we are still living in the same house for financial reasons, we will be getting divorced, and (hopefully) selling up and splitting the assets ASAP. So, I do sympathise with you. 2012 has not been a good year for me - on good days I'm looking forward to 2013, it's got to be better. On bad days, I don't feel like I have anything to look forward to. I'm sure that you, like me, will get through this time.

Take care of yourself first, and let everyone else worry about themselves!




My husband died 2 years ago been in relationship for 3 months-then decides too much going on in his head lol!

Your advice sounds brill let them worry about themselves!

Hope things pick up for you too.

Sorry about the break up. Too much going on in his head!!!!! He wants to try being in pain 24/7, then he would have something to think about. I am not on pain meds, just Amitrips at night. I am mid fibro flare and the fatigue has set in so I know where you are at right now. I hope things pick up for you soon. And look at it this way, do you really need someone elses full head on top of your fibro hun xxxxx


You are too right. Yes it would be good if he realised how I was suffering dickhead!

Thanks for your comments and you take care xxxx
