Monday always sucks.....

But my weekend double sucked! Some of you who read my blog may know that I have Fibromyalgia, if you did not know...Now you do...So to make a long story short it really really sucks, but after 6 years of having this crap I have learned to deal with it. To help control some of my pain I take low doses of medications and get lots of sleep. Lately I have not been sleeping well and thus having more pain. So I head off to my Doctor. He decides that maybe my meds have stopped working so he adds a med at night and changes another night time med. This worked well for 4 days. I started feeling yucky on Friday afternoon and by Saturday I was pretty sure I was dying Woo Hoo Lucky me!! So after some searching on the internet I realize I am in withdrawals. Within 2 hours of taking my old night time med, I start feeling human! Oh the JOY!

The internet is a great tool, but what I found while searching for symptoms of withdrawal from a medication was alarming, I was shocked that when I clicked on a link that sounded just like the information I needed, I was taken to a site that sold the same medication out of the US! No prescription needed!!!! Its like it set up for people to abuse prescription drugs, and that just not right! I just do not see how this can be legal.

Hope you all had a better weekend, and hears to a better week!

Drugs are so scary. I don't think the docs pay that much attention to the side effects possible for individual patients. Good for you doing your own research!

A prescription isn't necessary at some websites, but most still require one. On the ones that don't, you just swear that you need the drugs and that you are fine in all other ways, pretty much just lie, and you get almost whatever you want. I was recently in Tijuana, Mexico and there are more drug stores that give out meds the same way than you can count.

I didn't know you had Fibro! You should go check out my friend Autumn's blog...she's over at perfectiononacurve.com and she also suffers from Fibro, seems to have a pretty bad form of it too.

Hope you're feeling better soon!
