Hi every body. smilewinkgrin   I just need to vent here a min or two ok..
Well last month my family doc put me on the patch... and oh my Goodness what a break that was.. finally not in constant pain.. and was having break though pain.. did not realize I was in such constant pain. until then , you know how we just push it all back and pretend we are ok for our family sake..
so to start with it was great . I cut way back on my pain pills from 6-7 down to 4-5 . wow.. and it felt good.
then after about 2 weeks. it started to not work so well .  cry   
mind you the stress levels are extremely high right now. my daughter moved home and going through a bad time with custody of baby and all. ... but that's another story.  shakehead   
so when I went back to get new scripts I told my doc we may have to adjust the dose or something . as it worked great to start with but now was not doing the same thing. he was concerned as you know how you  get used to these meds pretty fast and have to keep upping them. we decided to give it awhile and see how things went .. so its almost time to go back and see him.
I will be asking to up the dose. this time. I am back to taking 6-7, pain pills a day and hitting the Soma more on top of that .. I had cut way back on those to. Gee that felt so dang good.
I am nervous but know I should not be with this doc. he is great.. but I'll be glad to be able to take less pills in a day. and feel like having a life.. so right now back to just making it through work and that's about it... having to lay down every day two times to get through the pain levels are back to being so high. a constant 9 I would say and at times a 10
mind you we had this camping trip planned this weekend and I am determined to go and relax.. yeah   yeah   yeah yeah at least this time my daughter will be with us to help set up and break down so it will be much easer on me.
Ok I guess I just really needed to vent its been awhile ..Thanks always every body for listing ,the support and love you give so freely ..
Thanks for being my Fibro family .
Take care all and Soft Fibro hugs.  turn   turn

Spirit, the stress you are going through with your family as well as the pain could be why your pain is so elevated.  It's so hard when your children are having problems.  You want to protect them but you can't so this is very hard on  your body.  It doesn't sound like anything you can possibly control.  Your helping the way you are is a huge blessing for your daughter.  For me, turning it all over to God gives me peace and helps ease the pain...physically and mentally.
I do hope you start to get the relief you need.

Thanks very much for your input. I agree , I think that is the only way I get through this is by turing it over, , and not allow any guilt to hit for not being able to do more for her.. she does thank Godness understand my conditon very well. and trys so hard not to lay a bunch of stuff on me that will make me stress even more. Bless her heart.. she is a good daughter. Did I say she is in massage school , Goodie for me. .. but mind you with Fibro you have to be carfule, specially if you are in a flare.
I'll be making an Apt for next week to see my Doc and adjust my Meds. I know this patch is going to work , because it did so well to start with..
 I do spend a lot of time praying , and it helps so much , I know I am going though this to learn something , I figure its to better my my inner self. and bring me closer to God. ...I am stong and will never give up...
Thanks for always giving your support .
Soft Fibro Hugs.
Take care my dear.
