I am so tired of being sick and tired and taking meds. I just want my life back the way it was before fibro and ostoarthritus. I don't want to take any more meds. I just want to live a normal life..........

It is tough. But you can do it. Don't give up. After awhile we get used to it and learn to pace ourselves and it isn't so bad all of the time.  I feel the way you do sometimes, too.

Obrian- welcome. We haven't met, I am a fellow FM survivor. I'm sorry you are having such a rough go of it right now. I know this challenge is like a rollercoaster. I hope for you the next day is a calmer day, without pain, and a day where you can reach out to joy and enjoy feeling it make you stronger and more fulfilled.

Hi Obrien and 3 cats and welcome to you both. There is a light at the end of the dark tunnel of flares so hang in there.
Sera, I like that "I'm a FM survivor" we all are. There are days when I'm a turtle and days when I'm a snail but I keep moving. smilewinkgrin I'm still waiting for the rabbit to come out in me.
luv and hugs

O'Brian, I do know what you mean.  You are sick and tired of being sick and tired.  But, life does go on.  Just try taking each day at a time and don't project yourself in the future.  Try looking forward to each new day with anticipation because, with fibro, sometimes we are better.  That's what I look towards. 
The good news is that doctors are really starting to reseach this illness and are trying to find out what causes is AND they are creating more meds to help us.  Things are much better in this area than they used to be.  So, keep moving and living your life.  I think there will be better days ahead.
By the way, Marlee, I think your "rabbit days" occured a few years back.  I know mine did!  devil
