Some people who're so racked with pain their lives are miserable will consider doing several things. They will resort to illegal way in which to relieve their pain. They just might end their life to deal with it. They might resort to robbery of a drug store. Pain makes people do funny things.

When I got so sick from migraines I thought I was losing my mind. Went to the ER and begged for help. I was vomiting all over the place. The "aura" that comes into my field of vision was making me blind in 1/2 the vision of one eye.

Bright, zagged edged multicolored lines of light. Nope, I'm not on a drug trip. Read about the aura that sometimes accompanies migraines.

out of all the pain i have ever had,fibromyalgia is by far the worst.

you cannot escape it. and the dcotrs have made my life really hard.

which do you fear more--addiction or loss of a quality lifestyle>?

me,i want to be an active member in society and work. i like being resposible and paying my bills.

the choice i have to make is not easy,but i have to take meds to function with this pain.

until you are in my shoes,yu will never understand.well maybe you will,but not completely.
sorry

What do you mean why did I check it, because you put it there,you are stupid. I had to figure out on my own that it was .org no thanks to you. Come on think about it you want to help people so you come on here and the link you put down is wrong. It goes nowhere and it is up to us to figure it out and you really think I'm the Moron I don't think so.

People that call each other names on a forum are both MORONS, and a little cowardly to boot! IMHO

Angel Do you really think that putting a link to help people on here that goes nowhere is smart?
If I didn't point that out to him it would still be there going nowhere and helping no one?

angel, i am so sorry you have had this for so long. i just got idagnosed a few months ago although i have had the pain for 2 years.
i could not imagine survivng these many years the way you have. especially with how much wasnt know about this disease up until recently.
how are you feeling today? are you getting taken care of properly from the doctors?

i started a fibromyalgia topic under the pain forum,here on topix. please check it out and maybe we can get enough people to recognize how much heart ache we go thru.

let me know if i can help you at all. i am no doctor or nurse,but i am pretty knowledgeable when it comes to the laws and ehtics of chronic pain and treatment.

have a great pain free day!

The doc I had at 8 who said I had it died...shortly after and in the 80's it was hard for people to believe you.
well when I was 8 and falling asleep in class I was lazy... but I always scored way above all my classmates in assessment tests. then when I was 12 and had my aunt flo... oh no yes I said it... ha! every ache was attributed to puberty...
After my mom died I had a doc say I had lupus... and all the way till now i've diagnosed and undiagnosed over and over.
then when i was 17 I suffered from acute appendicitis for 2 years and that was constipation... my appendics was on the wrong side and full of gangrene... I went through 2 years of pain every month worse than child labor pains.
then when I was 19 my dad had abandoned me and my mom was dead so I was going to charity hospitals where they said my pain was from my psyci... s/p i know gilbert...
then i had kids and a mental breakdown... I had docs who would treat it and then get too scared to treat me long term... and then I finally met the greatest doc who had me on meds for a year... but when we were moving to class 2 drugs he just refered me to the pain management people and luckily I have a great specialist that listens to me. But yes it has been a long road for me.
gtg talk later

Angel that doesn't make sense. He put up the wrong info so I correct him and I'm the bad guy? As far as get a life I have a great one and I use part of my time to help others. Now I can't help the fact that you didn't understand the information I gave you. Angel from reading your post I can see that you are very unstable and I could never compete with unstable or mental illness so I really hope you can find the help you need. By the way it is not normal for someone to come on a public site and share all of their nuerosies. Since I now realize you are at a severe disadvantage I will back off. Please get help if not for you then your family.

oh yeah and you aren't thinking in your mind one point me one point her... I can't believe you think correcting someone and then calling them a moron makes you a good guy.

I guess the way I'm replying is too hard for you to understand... here I'll help you...

and nuerosies?? talk about spelling eh.

ok so you can understand, I am being ironicwhen I say "I think pointing out that the link doesn't work and calling them a moron is even smarter!! who who..." I'm saying you are so much smarter by seeing the mistake and then calling them a moron for making one... sure and then you and your smart self make your own typo on the word usally by misspelling it myself and then using your own misspelling... the word is usually... right and in that I mean that no one is perfect so get a life and quite being a jerk to other people... especially the ones who are trying to be nice.

Dang and how mean can you really be... I happen to be completely open about all my problems... it was part of my cure... I'm not afraid for people to know me... It also doesn't bother me for people to know about my mental problems... but I guess it does bother me when misinformed people try to make a diagnosis of their own to hurt someone.
