Thank you Karen and Jim for the warm welcome. It looks like you both have quite a bit going on too. My heart goes out to you both, and I thank you both for being willing to put in the time and energy it takes to be a forum moderator.
The fibro and arthritis in my neck and shoulder seem to be in a competition with one another for my attention! The fibro wins at causing the most fatigue, and the arthritis wins first place for literally being a pain in the neck! Depression is another whole other ball game.. but I am thankful that the Lord answered my prayers and I am now getting help, it was a challenge because I do not have any medical insurance at this time. The local mental health is charging according to my income, and my psychiatrist has given me alot of samples. She also tried me on Seraquel, but it made me sleepy all day to the point I could not function. So we'll see what happens with the Viibryd.
Thanks again and I will keep in touch.
