For anyone who does not no antyhing about me, I live in Germany due to the Military. I have had Fibro for about 3 years, I had a real good nice Doctor that would try to help me any way possible, not to long ago he had moved ever since then my life went down hill. suddlenly my diganois was changed from fibro to IT IS ALL IN YOUR HEAD UGH!!!!!! I was told i was addicting to the my meds and i need to go to drug rehab, (I take Lotatab) They stopped my medicine at once, by far im not an expert but i figure if u r addicted to a medicine YOU DONT JUST STOP THEM AT ONCE.... Anyways i went to be screened at drug rehab, guess what after three hours of testing the specialsit said i am not an addict he finds no evidence so he said case closed then i had to go to the psycolgist also she is an expert in addiction guess what case closed no promblem here, so my Doctor wanted me to go to a rheumy, which i have been before same doctor same diganois but i went again, Sherry indeed u have fms and since nothing else is working for u i will write in your medical records to keep on the loratab. I thought it was over because my rheumy is a full blown Col so i thought i had some pull on my side plus the psycolgist also wrote in that it would be benifical to contiue on loratab, heck no my doc still wanted to argue and say no i dont think that is the answer Loratab is no cure, i told him that but at least it helps me to function, my last visit he gave me enough to last me for the month and also put in a refferal to go to a pain clinic, I was suppose to go to a militarty hospital but due to what is going on they are not expecting dependents so i was sent down town. I told the Doc there that i went to the ER for pain one day and they gave me this medicine and it worked like a dream so at that time the good Doc put me on that medicine but for some reason it did not work i was even told i could double the dose which i did still nothing last week i was in so much pain i almost went to the er again, so today i had an appoinment with the doctor again, I was really dissapointed I was able to talk with him for less then 5 min and he told me that they are not a full blown pain clinic that i would have to go a regular pain clinic he told me that it would be the one that you stay there for about a month. They would have a full staff there to help me they would have the pain doctor, psycolgist, physical thearpist where they will help you set up excersise program and where i can talk with the psycolist to help with the pain and learn relaxion techinques, I guess i dont feel like that will help me any, does anyone have any input on that?

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
