Actually, the reason I'm not wanting to start the Humira/Remicade route is because of my age. Sounds funny eh? I'm wanting to put them off for as long as I can simply because I worry that at such a young age as I am, it will at some point stop working and I'll become immune to them. With the Fibromyalgia, I've noticed that I acclimate amazingly fast to medications. I worry that the anti-depressant I'm on isn't working. Actually, I KNOW for a fact it isn't working or I wouldn't be as depressed as I truly am. Financial worries, health worries, relationship worries. I've become completely withdrawn after this last hospital visit. I'm in pain constantly, I'm tired all the time, and I truly know that if I don't do something, I'm going to try suicide soon. I've gotten some numbers for local mental health places already but I'm still wondering how the hell I'm going to pay for them. I've had the worst birthday of my life simply because I couldn't enjoy eating or spending time with my sister (who came in from out of town to be with me for my birthday). I'm constantly worried about dependency/addiction to the pain meds I'm on. I'm supposed to reschedule a pain management specialist sometime soon but its hard since my husband isn't on a set schedule anymore at his work. Plus, I'm not making as much as I usually do at work since I've had to spend two different 4-5 days twice this friggin' month in the hospital.
I'm TRYING so hard but I honestly want to die from all the constant pain and exhaustion. I don't want to talk to anyone. I don't want to see anyone. I don't want to go to work. I don't want to do anything. I can barely stand to read (my favorite addiction is books) or watch tv. I don't enjoy blasted thing since I left the hospital the last time. I am so tired of all of this crap. And I say again, I know I need professional help. I have insurance but it sucks more money from us then if we didn't have any. I sent a request through a hospital advocate/social services for some form of disability assistance. I can't pay the $11,000.00 bill from the first hospital visit. How am I supposed to pay the next bill that comes in when I had the full gauntlet this time of CT scans, upper GI and colonoscopy, and SBFT? I say again about being so blasted tired. I spent last night having the FUN FUN FUN vomiting sessions. You all know them...the surprise vomit sessions. Where you're not even that nauseous when you turn your head and BAM, projectile vomiting. Yay! I'm tired and I can't stop my blasted mind from imaging taking every pill in the house. Or jumping off our balcony (which is extremely stupid since we live only on the second floor). Maybe if I hit head first. Grrrrr, stupid thinking!!!! And I say again, I KNOW I need professional help this time. Which means more money going out then we have coming in.
