Discussions that mention vicodin

Fibromyalgia board


you will have to be firm and if he says it again disagree with him. this is your body. remind him of that. he is there to assist you not tune you out and do it his way.
for myself physical therapy and exercise, a good head shrinker for the first few years, and going thru doctors like t.p. till i found the ones i wanted to keep on my team.
i take ambien, benadryl and neurontin at night for sleep issues related to fibro and for r.l.s. getting the sleep my body requires helps so much. i also have d.j.d. and r.a. when those hurt i take vicodin and sometimes a vallium. i do not take any pain meds for fibro. in me they do no good. i have to take enough to make me a lump of useless mush and i refuse to live that way.
my son called me yesterday. to tell me how proud he is of me and the way i choose to live my life with joy no matter what happens to my body. after we got off the phone i got to thinking, is my pain less now than it was when i was in that wheelchair? know what? it isn't. what changed was me. choosing to accept and incorporate fibro into my daily life. learning how active i can be and how much it will cost me to go over that line. learning when it is worth it and when it is not.
most important of all is never look back. the old me is back there somewhere. looking back for some is bitter. for me it is a joyful thought. not of who i was. of who i am now. i like me much better now. i have a depth of compassion i never had as a healthy person. i would not trade that for anything, including my health.
peace,

I am in awe of these words: "choosing to accept and incorporate fibro into my daily life. learning how active I can be and how much it will cost me to go over that line. learning when it is worth it and when it is not." I'm new to this disease and trying to live with it, trying to change my world to one that I can handle, etc. "Accept and incorporate" ... that's definitely food for thought. I know what my life was before FM, and was happy with THAT me. I don't have a clue as to how to get happy with THIS me. In the meantime, I'll just keep reading all these great posts and maybe a little bell will go off in my brain to help me deal with what my life has become now.
