Hi Verytired!

First of all welcome to the family! I did add a subject to your post so others can find you more easily and come to meet you. And yes, we do understand how you feel living with the pain of fibro every day. That's what keeps us coming back often because it's hard for someone who hasn't actually felt our misery to totally understand.

Take care and keep posting...

Hi Verytired,

I do understand your name. I am very tired all of the time. The fatigue gets me more than the pain. I can handle the pain better than the fatigue. I do take adderal though and it has helped me a lot. Also use malic acid/magnesium (which you will read about on fibro101) and vitamin D3. that helps too.

I hope that you are having a good day. Feel free to post more, we would like to get to know more about you.

Hugs, Karen

You'll meet alot of understanding and caring people here.

I have been taking 5000 mcgs B-12 daily and it is helping with the fatigue. Hope you keep

Hello Verytired,
What a descriptive name you picked! This site has really filled a huge void for me, as I know it has for many others. I hope you find it helps to reach out when you need a shoulder, or extend one to someone else when they're in pain. Our stories are all different, but not so different...

    Meds: Nortriptyline, Clonazepam, Darvocet as needed
    Multivitamins, l-lysine, probiotics, magnesium, malic acid, calcium + vit. D, vit. C
    Chiropractic adjustments
Be yourself.  Everyone else is already taken.
