You save my life--read posts on the next page---CarrieLee

barbar - December 13

I am asking folks to go down a page a read a couple of posts I made that are now located near the top of the second page. I had some important things to say about Cymbalta, about your saving my life, and about you being guardian angels. And CarrieLee, I approeciate that you are trying to make sure the newbies get heard and to bury the fighting but I was trying to do the same. Also, I had a burst of epiphanies I wanted to share with people. I also wanted to thank them for possibly saving my life and I wanted not only to restore this forum but to introduce the idea of us as a community---a community of guardian angels. I believe these were important thoughts and should have been shared but you have buried them all. I will make you a deal. DON'T bury this one and I will NOT post any more. Ever. At least people can read this one which directs them to the others. I will no longer leave threads and I will stay out of your way. Barbar

Barbar, I had NO intentions of burying all your sweet and good natured posts. No one wants you to stop posting.... no way! Including me! I have never ever said that! You bring so much goodness to the forum! It was the REPEATED FIGHTING POSTS that were pushed down, and thankfully since then, some of the newbies have come back and are posting once again. You didnt need to write this, all you had to do was respond to that Cymbalta post again, which would bring it right back to the top! I read it and am so glad that we are all here to help each other and stop the sniping back and forth! I think your post is carefully worded to make me out as a *bad person* who was somehow trying to hurt you, which is clearly NOT the case since I have posted time and again how wonderful I think you are. Please dont do passive-aggressive on me. I am on your side :)

hi Barbar, i really think you are taking this the wrong way. please dont be sad. i dont think that carrie was trying to be mean to you at all. i think she was trying to help. you pushed some posts down too right... i am glad that all that fighting was pushed aside (hopefully it lasts... but i doubt it) i posted this morning asking everyone to stop fighting becasue its crazy. i always enjoy your posts too. i dont think carrie was saying anything about you going away or trying to keep anyone from getting life saving info. that isnt really fair to put on her. be happy, we need you. please dont go.

Barbar, I never meant to hurt your feelings. If I did I am truly sorry. That was not my intention whatsoever. I said that at LEAST 5 times! I used to enjoy this forum so much. Maybe its time to just throw the towel in for good. Its really too bad...

I said I would start no more threads; I may still respond to other people's notes. CarrieLee, think what you will.

 

barbar - December 13

Why did you do that, CarrieLee? It was unnecessary.

 

CarrieLee - December 13

On the contrary Barbar... it was Most Necessary since you were making Me responsible for suppressing *life-saving* information from people. not to mention driving you to: NOT post any more. Ever.... That would have sealed my fate for good around here and set the vultures on me at rapid force... and you Know it. You are a smart lady (great vocabulary btw...) one of the smartest out here.... you knew what you were doing when you started this thread. Cudos but they all hate me anyway, you did neednt have tried so hard.

Im new at this forum stuff. I was diagnosed with FM after an bad infection sent me to the hospital for a week in March of 2005. my doctor gave me flexoril to help me sleep.(sometimes it helps some times not) sometimes i take Bennidril with it. I was doing ok for a while but lately, i find it hard to get out of bed because everything hurts from the bottom of my feet to the base of my scull. do you have any suggestions to help with the pain. I cant get on the floor with my 4 year old grand son because i cant get back up. I'll be 50 in June.

Diana, I have had luck with Amytriptiline (sp?), aka Elavil. It is prescribed to Fibromyalgia sufferers because while not a sleeping pill, it helps you reach the deep sleep necessary to feel rested in the morning. Prior to Elavil, I would think I was sleeping soundly all night, but would awaken the next day and feel lethargic. The deep restful sleep has alleviated my pain considerably. I still have the fibro-fog feeling and will have pain when under stress, but I am much improved over pre-Elavil. However, as a word of caution, Elavil has some side effects that have been too much for some who take it. Rapid weight gain is one of them. I have not had the weight gain with elavil and have maintained about the same weight as I was pre-elavil. I am pretty active though, with 3 teenagers and a hyper-active boxer, that keep me on my toes.
