I was diagnosed in the early 90’s but they didn’t call it fibromyalgia then, I also take gabapentink and hate it ……..I am sooopp groggy in the morning that I can’t do any morning app’ts I have to wait till it wears off a bit so I can go out How does it affect you?
I make sure I do a daily Bible study, do one also in a small study group and make it to Sunday school and church. Prayer can help if you do so continually. Watch funny shows on TV, find 1 relaxing thing to do for yourself each day and don’t try to plan too much to do in 1 day. Sometimes all I can get done is shower and cook supper and that’s not been much lately and I used to bake bread and pies for family a lot. They’re adjusting. Days I wash clothes, I cook an easy meal or my husband brings home food for us to eat. I add fruit to that and we seem to make it fine. I’m praying for you.
It took me some time to adjust, but I’m doing much better now. I take 300 mg in morning and 300 mg at bedtime. It really helps.
i can’t afford the name brands, so i am on gabapentin. started with 300 mg, up to 600 mg. also just diagnosed with GERD. was pre-diabetic but got that under control. so will be adjusting my diet again:( i feel the best when i eat a little protein and lots of veggies. sugar is really bad. i also am bipolar II, so they just keep adding the meds. i moved into my own bedroom, which helps some. had to quit my job in Jan., so feel pretty isolated. am happy to have a place to discuss this. What do you do to keep from getting depressed?
