I dont know why i cant sleep......is it the voices that tell me i am only 34 and should be out working to finnancially support my faimly????????Is it the voices that remind me why i cant go out and work anymore????????Or and this is my favorite the voices that scream to me that fibromyalgia is kicking your ass and there is little if anything you can do about it.................Whatever the reason im here typing because i have nothing better to do. I just went in and checked on the kids and they are sleeping soundly....my wife is asleep, the dogs are asleep........All i really want right now is for my eyes to close so i can sleep so i can wake up in the afternoon take a pain pill and maybe just maybe accomplish clean the yard but now i have been working on that little goal for about three weeks now and my yard isnt that messy mind you........but as all of you folks know if we could do anything for more than five mins in a row we wouldnt be here chating back and fourth with one another.....but i do love and admire all of you so keep up the good work and i hope all of your dreams come true........................................

Hi, sorry you are having a rough time right now, been there.  There is a med that helped me in the past with sleeping and it seems to be helping hubby right now.  It is Trazadone.  It does not make you feel groggy in the a.m. either.  It also helps with B.P. for some reason.  Hope with spring coming and more sunshine (vit D) that you will feel a little more energetic and less painful.

Sorry too that you're having such a bad time. I imagine it's hard to be a man with Fibro in the sense that there are so many more women who have it; not that it's easy for any of us, but society has different expectations for men. I myself have never known a man who has it. Hope you can get disability soon. My brother got it for constant headaches but it did take a few years.

Don't you just hate that the only thing on tv at 4 am is info-mercials! That's practically more frustrating than trying to constantly force my brain to shut off and sleep :) Melatonin has helped me - sometimes not as much - but my problem is I have interstitial cystitis as well so every time I get up to pee at night, I can't fall back to sleep. I used to be able to just fine, but now once I'm up - I'm up for the night...bet you've never seen a 26 year old girl with darker eye circles than me :) haha

sorry i havent been on here for awhile. the hardest part for me is not financially being able to support my faimly.....i was raised that was the way it was dad takes care of the bills the clothes the roof and all that...so then after that is not being able to play enough with my kids, but at least im here i know that counts for something...my wife and kids are the only joy i have in life right now i dont know where i would be without them... as for the dogs we have three full time and we do a lil breeding of hybrids......daushunds and lab mixes they are too cute.....well thanks for the note i appreciate it..... good luck john

I love dogs too. Have two of my own. I am like GSDgirl. Love those german shepherds. I have a german shepherd pup and an australian cattledog mix. Don't nkow what I would do without them. Here I am up early too. Been up since 4:30. Love the internet. It keeps me company at the wee hours.

Take care,

Hope that you get the yard work done.

Hugs, Karen

Yay...dachadors! (SP?) We had one when I was a little girl. His name was Tanner and he looked just like a black lab with his legs cut off! He was such an awesome dog!
