Let me lay the story out for you all, if you don't mind. My son was up most of the night last night. My husband was up with him a good portion of that time because I took a Trazodone, like every night, and I was in a drug-induced sleep. At three o'clock this morning, he comes barging into the room and wakes me up by yelling at me to take care of our son.
So, I groggily get out of bed, in a pissed off mood, mind you, because I was woken up by someone yelling at me. I go out to the living room and try for forty minutes to rock my son to sleep. Falling asleep myself, I decide to take my son into my bedroom and put him between my husband and I. He fell asleep, and so did I. He wakes me and my husband up by screaming, but I am still drugged and have a very hard time getting out of bed. So my husband gets up with him very grudgingly.
A few hours later, about 6 this morning, I hear my son screaming in the living room. My husband is trying to rock him, but my son just wouldn't do it. So he puts him down on the floor and yells that he gives up and he has had enough.
My husband and I go outside to smoke, and he is in a really pissed off mood, going on and on about how he didn't get any sleep and how he is hurting all over. I can understand this. I told him that I would just stop taking my Trazodone. And instead of his normal response of how I need to take it, he said, "It's up to you. Just don't complain when you are tired all day."
I am having a really rough time this morning. I feel like I am being forced back into my old life before the fibro kicked in full force. I don't know what to do. And I feel like I have been kicked around all morning. Can anyone offer some advice or anything?

Tiki having a baby up all night crying is a strain on any couple. I've always said a marriage hasn't been put through the test til you have your first child. I'm sure when you are both rested things will look better and your husband will see things differently. Is your baby not feeling well???
 
I did not have fibro when my children were young and my heart goes out to all you young mothers with small children.
 
luv and hugs

Hello, shakehead

This is to TikiIsMyKitty.

I am sorry  for your pain of Fibromyalgia.  I came down with this bad conditon and man is it painful.  It is like a living nightmare to have this kind of pain and the fibro-fog incapacitates you from being able to move or think.

I have found complete remission by taking 3 calcium, 3 fish oil, 2 B-complex, 1 folic acid, 1 iron,2 magnesium complex capsules and one multivitimin a day.  I take the folic acid, and 1 B-complex, 1-fish oil, 1 magnesium, the multiivitamin, 1 calcium in the morning and then around 11:00 a fish oil and calcium pill, then about 2:00 another fish oil and calcium pill. At about 4:30 I take the remaining pills.  I also take the concentrace liquid minerals each day.

I got a lot of information from Moss Greene of Bellaonline.com and this protocol of supplements has worked to my total amazement.  I have been free from it for about 2 years now.  Every once in awhile I will have an episode, but it is always mild. 

I also have along with the Fibro, Restless leg syndrome, Periodic limb movement, ADHD, Irritable bowel syndrome, high blood pressure and a thyroid conditon, and clinical depression but life is very good because none of these are fatal and all the medications I take make me feel like I don't have anything. I have gotton all these things due to genetic factors.  Our son is bi-polar and this has been a trial for us but it is one day at a time for this.

I don't know whether this regimen will work for you but it has for some people. 

Hope you feel better. 

Peaceful Seeker

Tiki, your husband was probably exhausted and that's why he talked to you like that.  I know you were exhausted too, but men can be such babies.  I'm sure, once he is rested, he will start acting normal again.
 
Welcome, Peaceful Seeker, to the fibromyalgia forum!  You just kind of "snuck" in here!  LOL  I'm so glad you joined us and I hope to hear more from you soon.

My husband and I talked last night, and things are doing better now. The little baby slept like an angel last night, thank the Lord. I guess I kind of beat up my husband in my sleep last night, but I was having a weird dream, and with my medication, I don't know what I am doing in my sleep. Poor guy. I suppose I really shouldn't complain so much. He has been very wonderful our whole relationship. He has been very supportive. It's kind of been one illness after another with me for years now, and so when we first got together, I was having problems. But he has always taken care of me. Even when we were just friends. When we first met, I started having blackouts. They did all kinds of tests on me, but we never found the reason. But, he barely knew me, and he would drive me places I needed to go because he didn't want me blacking out at the wheel.

I just feel like I have been hit with everything. I found out Thursday that my aunt (my mom's sister) was diagnosed with Fibro 20 years ago. She is doing better because she like almost completely redid her lifestyle. I suppose I need to look at things in my life and see what I can change to make things better. I think a lot of this right now is that I am so stressed by having this illness, and there are so many stressors in my life that I just can't handle dealing with it. Stress makes everything so much worse. I wish I could take a little vacation, where I didn't have anything stressful around me. And I could just recoup for a little while. Then maybe I could look at all the stressors in my life in a different light.

I really appreciate the fact that you are all here for me. It means so much to me. I am so thankful to have people to turn to when I just need to vent, or when I need advice. So, thank you all so much. You are all like my family.

Seeker: I am already on a lot of medications. My doctor says that it is a shame that someone my age has to be on so many meds. I looked at him and said, "Hey, I don't care how many meds I have to take as long as they help."
Along with the Fibro, I have IBS, Major Depressive Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, anxiety issues, and a few other things that are illuding me at the time.

Anyways. I won't keep you all. Thanks again.

fibro is so hard on everyone, isn't it? my dh has had a harder time adjusting than i have, i think. for the most part he is very accepting and understanding and helpful, but sometimes he gets irritable with me the way it sounds like your hubby did the other night. i try really hard not to take it personally when he gets upset, because i know he doesn't mean to hurt me, but i do know how hard it can be to have a loved one upset with you on top of everything else we go through. so *gentle hugs* there...

i totally get what you're saying about wishing you could have a vacation and recoup! wouldn't that be wonderful? i sometimes wish i could just magically wake up one day with everything done-house perfectly cleaned and organized etc. so that i could start "fresh". haven't figured out a way to have this happen yet, but a girl can dream, right?? :)

i wish i had some good advice or words of wisdom here, but i do understand the stress of all of this and am thinking of you and hoping your baby keeps sleeping well and things with you and your dh continue to get better.

SleepyBug,
Sometimes it is just nice to have someone understand what you are going through. My hubby and I talked, and we made up and everything. Things have been really hard on him the past week especially. I somehow ran out of pain meds a week early, and I have been in a whole lot of pain. All I want to do is lie around and do nothing, but I have been trying to be as helpful as possible.
I wish I had a magic wand that I could just wave and the house would be spotless, with everything in its place, all the laundry would be done, and we wouldn't have to worry about any of that. Wouldn't it be nice? I dream too. Sometimes it can be disappointing when you realize that things that like are pretty impossible, but, hey, it never stops me from dreaming.
Thanks for the hugs. I hope you are doing well.

*soft hugs*
