Carmen~*~*~Chronic Pain Moderator
DX-Chronic Pain due to two freak car accidents, Pancreatic Divisum, Fibromyalgia, Asthma, Depression w/anxiety, Migraines, and Kids!!!
Meds- Suboxone 16mg for pain, Cymbalta 60mg, prilosec, Zyrtec, ProAir inhaler, and the best medication is my puppy, kitty, and 5 guinea pigs!!!
Even though my friends see me gimping around, shifting positions in chairs, rubbing my knees....I had one close friend ask me why one earth I had a handicap sticker in the 'bucket O' Stuff' between the front seats of our van. I wanted to tell her because 'I love to drag my leg around, hitch my way through stores and what a knee slapping riot when I fall on the ice in a parking lot...Oh, and when after a long ride, my legs go numb and what a blast it is to collapse when I get out of the car because I can't feel my feet! Plus...People feel sorry for me and throw me money!!!"
You would think with all the ads there are now for Fibro and Fibro medications people would get it. Comments are made out of ignorance and I know it hurts even more when it comes from relatives.
