Dear Desperate, There is no cure for fibro. I have had fibro for 30 years. I have been to about 10 fibro experts to no avail. There is no cure. My best recommendation is to find a doctor who knows how to write out numerous scripts to cover pain, muscle tension, insomnia, migraines, TMJ, etc... Keep a journal to validate your needs. After 30 years I'm just about done. However, I am Christian and that doesn't fit with suicide. Most days that dominates my thoughts because of the inescapable pain, even with meds. Living from one set of meds to another isn't living. AND IN CASE YOU DON'T KNOW, IF YOU HAVE BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH FIBRO (RECOMMEND SEVERAL DOCTOR DIAGNOSES), YOU CAN FILE FOR DISABILITY. DON'T WAIT. FILE ASAP.
The fibro will get worse (I think) if you stay in bed and if you stay in the abusive relationship. Those two are a bad combination. If we stay in bed we end up feeling sorry for ourselves, feeling, Perhaps, useless, and it becomes a vicious cycle. Distract the pain, music makes me move, movement makes me feel alive. Being alive makes me think that I have a purpose in life. Look for your purpose in life and value yourself enough to get out of the abusive relationship or find help to improve the relationship if the other person agrees. Hope this helps.
