I'm sooo happy for you!  I know you are really suffering but you will get control of the pain and get your life back.  Sounds like you have a real "winner" there!  Be sure to let us know about your appointment because we really do care about you.

thank you guys i am starting to walk a bit this am even if it's up and down the hall and I'm teaching my kids as normal. Now if I can get my math test in today that was due yesterday I'll be good. I just can't thank you girls enough for you support. Seriously no one in this town it seems believes in it.

My own husband told me yesterday maybe it IS depression(which IF i could've thrown something at him I would've and my best friend keeps telling me maybe it's the rental house we're living in. (I got a complete background on the hosue from the police before we move in. Couple calls for domestic violence that's it)

Please lord let me make it till the 13th...

Were you worried there were ghosts in the house? lol..

That's great you got an appointment.. make sure you have your list ready. First appointment should be a long one and lots of moving joints poking here and there that you will feel for sure the day after!

that's funny silly. I wish it was only ghosts! It's nice neighborhood but there are lots of young people running around all times of the night. When I first got sick in May (my first flare up I believe) we wanted to make sure it wasn't anything environmental and my fil is friends with the cheif of police so we had asked him the history of the house.

2 weeks ago our neighborhood was vandalized when my hubby went out to see what was going on he told me to call 911 when he came back in and locked the door someone tried to break in our door....yeah good times.

Somebody tried to knock your door down??? I would be looking for another area to live in for sure. But I guess that is why I like large dogs. Protection. That is no way to live, in fear of being robbed, or worse. I don't know how you do it.

How long did it take for the cops to get there? Are they pretty fast? Did they catch the people? Let us know.

Hugs, Karen

Hello Java

Those are probably the two most important questions to ask a doctor. I have found that being laughed at because a blood test says there is no reason for you to be in pain.. Is almost as painful as the pain itself.....A couple years ago I had to spend a couple of weeks in the hospital with blood clots in my legs and abomin.....I had this one doctor who was convinced there was no such thing as fibro and he was gonna prove it...... He commenced to do all the same testing that i have been going through for years and years......Only to find out that low and behold as many doctors have told me...."THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH YOU"......Through hours and hours of research online I pretty much self diagnosed myself....Then i found a doctor who actually treated fibro and he agreed that i most definatly suffered from it..........As time went on i also discovered that the supposed "juvenile arthritis" that i was dx with as a teen ager is most commonly a mis diagnosis for juvenile i am convinced that i have beeen suffering from this my whole life and was always told there is nothing wrong with you or getting the arthritis dx so now i am content to know that im not insane and i do have pain and the meds i take are necasary for me...
Fibromyalgia DX June of 07 December of 08 i got to have a vacation in the hospital with blood clots in my legs and abdomin meds I have tried them all the only thing that even remotely helps me is oxycodone 15 mg and thats all i take i hate meds trying to get disability since June of 05
