Hey, I dont have as much time as I usually do anymore because of class and exams and everything. I have been having trouble focusing on anything. Whenever I get online, I used to stay on forever and be so focused on replying to people, and working on the blog that I do for a youth forum. But now, I cant focus at all. I try to get on here and read posts and help out. I havent been doing my required blog posts and everything. I need to be doing more, but cant focus.
I have a med for that, but it was expensive so I couldnt get it. I go to the doc today and hopefully I can get it changed and maybe it will help.
I have been taking trazadone to help me sleep and it works great for my sleep. My question is: Do I have to take it every night? OR just when I need it? Some nights I go to bed later and know I have to get up early so I wont take it... but the next day I am less rested and feel shaky and bothered(best way I can explain it)... are these similar to withdrawals? When I do take it I get good sleep and wake up and feel like I actually slept. Im just wondering if I should be taking it everyday. I will ask the doc today also.
I guess I have been doing better. Everyone makes comments that I appear brighter(I guess I dress up more now)..and that I smile more and talk more. I guess that means my meds are helping.
MY fibromyalgia just might kill me yet! Im having a TON of problems with it. I am constantly hurting all the time. Mostly my legs from walking so much and going up and down so many stairs..or standing or sitting for long periods in class/lab. I just hurt all over all the time now.. I really dont want to take anything for it. Especially pain meds, I tend to get addicted and abuse them so I stay away. And the lyrica made me gain so much weight... Plus, I am already taking 3 different meds just so I can function during the day. Anitdepressants, sleep meds, and focus meds... next pain meds? I dont want that, but I dont know how long I can do this.
What is the new Fibro med? I forgot the name... perhaps I could give that a try if it didnt cause problems with my other meds.. thats what Im most afraid of...
Anyways, I have to get to class, thanks for letting me vent a little.
