Hi Rich & Welcome,
This is a great place to hang out! Everyone here is just so great and someone is always there when you need it most.
I am also going thru tough times with my meds and work. I am actually lucky in my office job because I can pretty well set my own hours. It is a slow time right now, so I answer a work cell at home on Monday & Wednesdays and then I go into the office on Fridays. Even that is almost too much for me anymore.
I am having many problems with concentration & memory. Also, fatigue has about knocked me down. Right now I am hoping to get things to a place where I can at least get thru each day halfway normal.
By the way, I am from central Illinois, we just got 6" of snow yesterday and a wind chill warning for the next 2 days. Suppose to have wind chills up to -25, so just staying in by the fireplace and trying to keep warm. I've heard of many places so much colder right now, but this is enough for me!
Sorry, for some reason I am in a talkative mood tonight. Take care & hope you enjoy the forum!

I tend to be in denial sometimes, too. This morning I thought the flare I've had since May was finally subsiding, but not true. When I got home tonight, I was in tears. That is after walking a little more than my prescribed 20 minutes a day and a two hour commute. Sheesh! A full 20 minutes! I guess something like that will pull you out of denial right away.
Glad to meet you Rich. Sorry to have to meet you here. These are great folks.

I've been where you are today.. 4 times!!! Its gonna take time but you'll get better. Hopefully you won't have any on going issues. Ultimatly I wound up with Fibromyalgia, I'm not how and when it all started but I DO know how you feel.
I can totally relate to your denial thing,,, I just got diagnosed with FM and I think I've had it for about 30 years. No one wants to be sick so its totally natural to deny it
Take care of yourself and you're always welcome here.
