Guess what?  I made it safe and...well, I've never been sound. smilewinkgrin   But, I am in SC after a horribly painful and stressful week. cry   But, my mom and I didn't kill each other and I didn't smoke (51 days smoke free), so I think I held up very well.  There were a few bumps in the road along the way, but there weren't too many potholes. wink    It's sunny & cool here (unlike the dry, hot, Santa Ana wind-filled SoCal), so it's very nice.
BTW-for all of you up on your "who's who" in the music world, I got to meet the rapper, Nelly.  He was on our plane from LAX to Atlanta.  He is gorgeous in person! tongue
Anyway, I am accepting all emails from my fibro family (you know the address).  I apologize for not being in touch for the last 2 weeks, but I'll have a little more time and a lot less stress now, so I should be able to answer them fairly quickly.  Of course, my mom still has dial-up internet (she just gets online to check her email), so it might take a week to send. rolleyes
It's good to be back home with my family.  Oh yeah, it's alright to be around my parents, too. wink
FINALLY dxd on 06/13/08
Vicodin, Neurontin, Ibuprofen for pain-which doesn't help, BTW
Zoloft & methadone (NOT for pain) for sanity-which doesn't help, BTW
Klonopin for anxiety (Guess what?  Doesn't help!)
Chantix to try to quit smoking (started 08/20/08)

Hi Kelly,

It is nice to hear that you made it home and are happy. Try to pace yourself with unpacking and stuff. I know that you are probably in pain and in a hurry to get settled.

It is good to have you back and on the forum. We have missed you.

Hugs, Karen

Oh, WOW!  Helloooo, Southern Gal!  Glad you are back in my neck of the woods.  It's really nice here these days and the humidity has gone bye-bye.  I'm glad you made it home without any major problems and I know you are glad to be with your family again.  Remember to run that over and over in your head when you Mom gets on your nerves.  She loves you or else you would not be back home...trust me on that one!  Also, remember how much you missed your parents when you were alone in California.  That will help you cope with living together again.
As Karen said, pace yourself when unpacking and also volunteer to help around the house...but pace yourself there too.  If you overdo, you know what happens and that will make things difficult, especially if your parents really don't understand fibro.  If you get stressed out and want to start yelling, come here and vent.  We will help you.
Again, I'm so happy you are back home.  I know it will work out for everyone concerned.

So glad you made it home.  Great advice on taking it easy, you don't want to push yourself to quickly, your body and mind needs to adjust.  Keep up the good work with the no cigarettes!!!

Hey Kelly,

    I'm so glad you are home. It's good to be home at times like these!

     Anyone who can quit smoking can handle whatever else life throws at them. You are going to be alright girl.

     I'm proud of you.

Sorry I'm late Kelly, I was a little busy over the weekend trying to adapt to being a new mom again.
I'm sooo glad your finally home. I hope your parents understand that it has taken a lot out of you to get there. I'm sure it's not going to be a piece of cake moving back in with your parents. I hope your able to find a place of your own before you have to unpack too much. smilewinkgrin
If you made it through this without smoking you have it made. I know I'm giving the chantix a lot of thought now.
luv and hugs
