I to am bi-polar and have fibro, arthritus, colonitus. I also see a phyc for the bi-polar. My life was a mess and I was on soo many drugs and they didnt even help that much. It affected marriage ect. I am alot better now though the bi-polar is always there even though phyc put me on zyprexa which really helps. Ialso see a rheumatologist who put me on an opioid which was a major breakthrough with the pain. I am an introvert and no amount med make me get up and go phys or mentally, my bad time is late arfo through till bed, where i am so afraid of everything I bring the pain on just from being afraid to the point it is manic thus the phyc.I hope being part of the forum helps, its my only outlet and full of good helpful people.

Thank your all for your kindness. The worst part of the fibromyalgia for me is being limited to daily lifestyle, that I once had when I use to be able to go from 6am-9am at night. Going out-and-about, cleaning, cooking, etc. Also, my head isn't as clear as I would like for it to be. If I over extend myself, which I do quite often, I crave simple carbs and that basically puts me into a state of isolation. I'm having some tough days, but also good days.
I like to shop for clothes and shoes, but only do that on line now 'Zappos.com' free shipping both ways and 'Victoria Secrets'. I also get my groceries via 'Peapod.com' who also deliver. I do go out, but am trying to recuperate, is there such a thing?, since there's no cure for my ailments. I don't stay on a regular diet, eating and bed/morning schedule. which I know can heal 75% of my ailments if I stayed on a regimented schedule, as long as I don't eat sugar and simple carbs, even some high glycemic fruits. But it's soo hard, some mornings I wish I didn't wake up. My 3 kitties are the only angelic-beings (besides the angels) who are really keeping me alive and giving me inspiration.
I wrote a novel, (working on hireing an editor, then finding an agent and pulisher - din't want to self publish, that's $ out of my pocket, so anyone that knows anyone that's in the 'Inspirationl' publishing, feel free to pass my name and e-mail along) and am working w/an organization called 'CTREIA' in CT, which helps people invest in real estate. I'm trying, to get my real estate liscense. This is my mountain. I may be an 1/8 uphill, can't wait to reach the top. I live in CT, am 50 and don't want to go back to a corporation, whom I believe burnt me out, and opened the door to all my negative outlits. Is there any rich, handsome, single men, lets say 5'8"-6', blue eyes, dark hair, hairy chest... out there looking for a 5'6" Hot blonde, blue eyes, single, not rich, no hairy chest :) It's been 2ish years since I dated, no children. My friends tell me to get dressed and go out and meet men (since I own 3 closest of fabulous shoes and dresses/pants). But where are all these men. Anyway I apolagize for trying to turn this into a dating service, it just popped in my head and it actually made me feel good and forget about my problems for awhile.
Now I need help getting off sugar. It's bad enough on a gluten free diet. Just get sooo confused on what to do what not to do... that's when I pray, then pray some more.
sooo much Love goes out to all of you and maybe if we pray all together GOD will hear us and relieve us from all the pain and hurt in out lives.
Bye for later,
