I dearly wish I could get off the cocktail of drugs im on but the pain is just to bad. Sounds like you do well for yourself. Keep up the good work, this forum is fabulous. sue2z
I was resting, but usually I get up 2-4 times a night with pain or just can't sleep. Hope you are able to get things back on track in '09. You've come to a great place. Everyone here is great and always willing to reach out and help each other. Hope you hang around.
Never regret something that made you smile!

Hi Wookie and Welcome-
You have been on here? Have not seen you, but it's nice to meet you! You've had this for awhile, (understatement) I am new to this as of late winter of last year. It's been quite an adjustment and still learning. The group here is great- they have taken my hand and guided me for the last 8 months now.
Join us on our daily Koffee Klatches when you can. It takes our minds off the pain and we get to know one another better.
Wish you all the best for reaching your goals for 2009!
May the force be with you Wookie!!!
You've found the right place!! This is an awesome forum!! I've only been around for a couple of weeks, so I'm kind of a newbee myself. These wonderful people have made me feel SO much better.

Hi Wookie,Hi Wookie,
My name is Aux and I'm fairly new here too.
In the summer of 2006, I was exposed to some highly infectious bacteria as well as virus. As a result, I developed Tolosa-Hunt Syndrome. Most people respond well to steroids....I didn't. A few months later, I developed FM. My physician from the Mayo Clinic said FM was secondary to the Tolosa-Hunt syndrome.
Interestingly, he said that someone with a trauma or disease that seriously affects C 1-4 will often later develop FM.
At any rate, I'm now disabled. The last two years have been miserable and I can only imagine 20+ years. Let all hope for a better 2009
