For some reason I've been spared the joint pain that is so typical of Lyme disease. I do know what sleep problems, low energy, malaise and brain fog can do to a person. It wears you down. Is someone helping you with depression issues? It's very common with these kind of things. Depression could be a major factor in the insomnia.
I agree with the rest. You need a new doctor. Trying to get thru this without pain meds is not the way to go! I don't think I could handle it. Are you on anything for depression? Depression comes right along with Fibro and you should be on something for that too. It will help you to get thru this alot easier & it also helps you see that you can live an almost normal life with a bit of help.
Please start looking for a good doc. As tyno3 suggested, ask if they treat Fibro. A good doc will make a world of difference in how you are treated and also how you feel. Good luck and keep us posted.
Never regret something that made you smile!

patsie,thanks for the prayers....I to find being'normal' for my family is very difficult.My husband calls me everyday at 11 o clock to see how i'm doing,whichis usually crummy.He called today and asked if I would make him a sandwich for lunch and I thought my head would roll off.Yesterday was unreal...today is somewhat tolerable.I find to that I prefer being alone anymore...being around everyone is..well..to much trouble.I don't have to repeat all the time to the same ol' question "whats wrong?".I know they feel just as helpless as I do,but what else can I say.I know going inward is not healthy,but who knows whats healthy or not anymore.In the famous words of the Ramones'I wanna be sedated'.

patsie,yea the friend thing,they have all gone away,but thats my fault.I'm a very social creature,but going out or having people over just got to be to high maintinence,even for simple conversation.the aloneness just is easier,and it seems that I'm pi**ed off at others for not hurting.This is a strange coralation but, when my dad died, I almost had the same feeling,like how can everybody else be happy and go on with life when my guts been ripped out,I well know that was grief,but I feel there is a connection.Like I'm greiving for the life I have lost and still losing.
Ps...But I still have you guys!!
