Hello there. I have some questions for you. I have had fibro for a couple of years now. It is difficult for me to accept that I have only Fibro because it seems as though a lot of people with it are still functioning. People still have jobs, go to different activities. I am not saying that people are suffering less than I am. I just don't understand how people are able to deal with fibro with meds like ultram, anti-depressants, Vicodin and so on. I am on Morphine three times a day and am pretty disabled most of the time.I still have quite a bit of pain even with the Morphine. Though if I didn't take it at all I would be bed ridden. I guess I want to know if there is anyone else with fibro who is in my possition. Also if anyone has any ideas of how they help their fibro I would love to hear them. I am 27 and still need to have kids and do all this other stuff I want to do in my life. I need to be sure this is only Fibromyalgia. When I say that I do not mean that Fibro isn't horrible in itself. It is quite possible that mine is just a severe case of Fibro. Thank you for your help. Love Cris

I can go days not watching TV or...
