Anyone else tired of doctors?

Is it just me, or are most doctors a waste of time?  They’re great for everyday stuff, but when I hand them my patient history (10 years of Fibromyalgia), it’s not long before they give up.

I’m tired of doctors giving up on me.

Fibromyalgia is not curable.  There is nothing I can do to make it go away or become white noise in the background of my life.  I’ve had it long enough to accept that.  What I refuse to accept is that I have to quit at life and just spend my time managing this disease.

God made me for more than that.

I managed my Fibro for a long time with the usual stuff: physical therapy, pain meds, trying different treatments, some exercise.  Two years ago, all of that stopped helping.  This disease isn’t supposed to progress, and yet it has.  I went from 80% functional (compared to an average person my age) to 20% functional over the course of those two years.  No one knows why, and no one has had any solutions.

I’m praying, asking God for wisdom, and the next obvious thing to do is to change the way I eat.  That’s my plan, and with God’s help it will make a difference.

I want my life back. I’m ready to do what it takes to get there.
