Hello everyone. I went to my new doctor today. He is so wonderful. He is so understand, knowledgeable, and he really listens, which is a big deal. He is doing all that he can to make dealing with my fibro easier. He upped my Lyrica, gave me stronger pain meds, gave me a new muscle relaxer, and also a med for tension headaches. He also wrote a note so that I can have a pet. I was talking to him about how I had read a lot of articles on how research shows that people with chronic illnesses who have pets do better than some of those without them. So he wrote that he recommended I have a cat for companionship and medical necessity. I thought it was really cool of him. My old doctor wouldn't do that. I am so thankful to have this new doctor. It's important to have a doctor who not only believes in this illness, but is knowledegable and willing to do anything he/she can to help.

May your heart be filled with love and joy.
May your mind be clear and true.
May your smiles be many,
And may your tears be few. 
May God wrap you in His arms
Especially when you're feeling blue.

Tiki that is fabulous!  I want your dr. too!!  No mine is very great, my rheumy is.  I am going to call him tomorrow and see if there is any way he will put me on Cymbalta.  Do you take that?
