    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Hello my dahlings, right now my brain is floating some where out in space. Lyrica hit me hard this morning and now I can't think clearly.

    Weather: hot

    Sleep: good

    Mood: uuuhhh I think I'm lacking any mood right now. My mood is floating in space, along with my brain.

    Plans: Probably not much. My pain level is high already and Lyrica is useless. My new med. Cymbalta is useless too. I'm so tired of this. I'm a prisoner of my body.

    You all have a good day. love to all. muahs

    Cookie, be careful taking Cymbalta. It totally messed up my manic cycles. Made them worse in fact. Hope you do get some relief soon!!!

    Weather: Chilly, but nice. Blue skies and a few clouds. Supposed to rain next few days though.

    Sleep: Too much, can you believe that???

    Mood: Cranky, bitchy, and ready to tear the next person who pisses me off a new one.

    Plans: Was supposed to attend pt this morning. Woke up early, got a shower, then sat down in Matt's recliner because it has more padding and promptly fell asleep. Didn't wake up til 11 am, and hr after I was supposed to be there. Opps!! Matt canceled it for me. Just can't seem to do anything last couple of days. Between my back and wanting to sleep all the time, I'm a mess. I blame it on the drugs. So guess I'm gonna do what I do everything Thursday. Play on the computer and watch tv til Matt gets home, then fix dinner. Tired, so I'm gonna catch ya all later. Have a good day.
