Pain Pill Cocktail du Jour

This time the pics are the story. Read them. Since I’m missing a New Year’s Eve Party, I got “dressed up” for my doctor appt. I’m really into scrunchies now, am wearing a light coat of Rose Beautycounter lip gloss, and left the zombie eyes bare. Goodnight 2018. I toast my “Levy Protocol” + a billion mgs of muscle relaxer “cocktail” to you, dear readers, and to our hopes and dreams in 2019.


Oops, my @Gunnerandlux @dianakane FEMINIST necklace in the photo at top is on backwards (blame the meds), but that doesn’t make it any less awesome. I sure as hell am fighting for my rights as a human, as a woman, as a mother, as a feminist. Cheers to that.

  1. Hi! I’m Michelle and new to your blog, but not new to Fibro. I’m in the middle of a very painful flare that was initially triggered by a car accident, but I made it even worse trying to do a fun winter break outing with my family. I feel like I’m stuck in hell. I want to sleep, but I can’t. I hope you feel better soon and have a happy New Year.

    1. Ugh!!!!!! I empathize greatly re car accident pain triggering other issues (that was in college long before fibro at 40). Re sleep, do you take anything? I take 9mg melatonin and a nice dose of CBD along with my dose of night dose of Neurontin, plus Nortriptyline, and on a bad night some Klonopin too. Hoping for a medical marijuana card in 2019. I wonder if any of the above would help you? CBD: (back in stock any day now)
      Thank you for reading!
      All best,


      1. Good morning. Just woke up for the day. My sleeping is horrible. I usually wake up several times during the night. My sleep cocktail varies, but usually 1200 mg gaba/ Neurontin 75 mg Benadryl and 4mg zanaflex. My psych dr keeps offering me and giving me samples of Belsomra, which I take when I’m totally desperate, but with all of the new regulations on controlled substances, I’d rather not deal with an extra hassle.
        Let me say, before I go any further, how grateful I am to have found this blog and know there are other people out there who feel the ame things I’m feeling and are also going through this crazy journey called life with fibromyalgia. I often feel like I’m going crazier than I (usually) am. I was doing ok for awhile , then bam, a car accident. Right before Christmas sent me plunging back into the dark and bottomless pit of pain. And I hate talking or complaining about it to anyone. I feel like they really don’t understand and they really don’t want to hear (about) it. So, thank you from the bottom of my heart for being here.
        A little background. I’m 51 years old. I live in Florida with my husband (of almost 22 years) Dave, and 2 children, Max and Lily. Although I was just officially diagnosed with fibromyalgia earlier this year, I think this has been plaguing me for about 10 years. I’m still having difficulty grasping this because I often feel like maybe it’s “all in my head.” I often question if this is even real and I feel very isolated because I really don’t have anyone to talk to that understands. So, thank you again for being here and giving me the assurance that I’m not totally crazy.
        So, I’ll be back. Have a great day!
