Welcome to HW, BP forum What a nice introduction. You really sound like you've got a handle on things, I am jealous! Glad you're here, HW is an awesome place. So many of us dealing with illnesses/conditions that are interlinked (like your fibro/depression/bp). This site can benefit us in many ways.
I am depressed right now; this episode has been hanging on (and deep) for three weeks now. I actually felt miles better yesterday and thought I was out of the woods, but today my hope ended. So that's crummy that you're not feeling well, I can empathize. I've often wondered about fibro for myself, but I have learned that my pain comes from all the tension in my body, and it's crazy how much there is. I am in constant pain everyday. The only thing that seems to help is massage and warm baths. Massage therapy is so expensive too which is a bummer. Depression makes me feel more of the pain too.
Anyway, welcome again and keep us updated!
Olivia~Thanks for your support. The depression has lifted a bit, feeling better the last couple of days. We shall see what happens. I've gained weight from the risperdal though, so know we're going off of that, which is not good b/c I feel that it was helping me sleep through the night??
Vickie, how are you feeling???
