Hello I was reading posts by many people all over WebMD. I know I have seen many doctors and used many different medications and have gained lots of knowlelge. But the knowledge I have gained is what works for me. I think we have to keep that in mind that what works for one person may not work for everyone. So don't give up hope. Just remember this is a support community. Hearing that some one has good care and I have to settle is frustrating. I imagine for someone without insurance that has to be even more disappointing. Thankfully this is a support group for us to come together and talk about our similarities, our difficulties, our challenges, our daily struggles on to get through each day. When you share how you get through your days, I value your words. Thank you for taking time and sharing your courage when you do, so I too can make it through another day.

Hi Debb,
Thank you for all of your sharing and input to me and others!Your right ,it can be very frustrating finding the right Dr.s,Treatment,,MRI'S.or whatever!For me its been frustrating because I was well established with a Group of specialists and DR.s(Which I need for this ilness)They know me and all mt pain issues!Then our insurance chaned to Kaiser and it took almost ayear to find a Dr. who would take care of what pain Meds Ii need!Except for my Migraines,I seem to Clash with the Nueoligist and I get some but not the right amount and BLAH<BLAH!

Hi Lita, My name is Deb nice to meet you. My greatest battles are with fibromyalgia, arthritis, & sensory nerve pain(left arm & leg) amongst other stuff. My struggles are - number one - myself, 2 - too many different pasts for me, 3, having nothing to do with any of it and just beginning???? But how - still struggle with my own guilt of - now of not working. I know - it's NO BODY"S BUSINESS. I just feel I need to EXPLAIN and when I do I feel guilt. Than I start looking for work and get frustated. "SCREAM" Would be so much easier somewhere where no one knows me. But my grandbabes are here.

Very nice to meet you Deb. I am one with many past as well. I have been disabled all of my life and don't work. Yea it is Nobody's buisness but, I really don't care what ppl think. I would tell you not to feel guilty but, that is like telling somone in pain not to feel pain, it's a rough ecconomy right now so it is really hard to find a good job and with limitations that makes it even harder to find a good job. I too think about moving, I always wanted to live in Florida but, my Grandbabii's are here as well and they mean the world to me so, I totally understand. Be easy on yourself, things will get better...Lita
