How was your Halloween?

Sorry to everyone I didn't answer yesterday because I get lost in the pain and depression.

I didn't have a costume for my son and t felt so bad because I didn't have the energy to get him one but he had a great time handing out candy to the neighborhood kids. I broke down a little after putting my son to bed because I feel so lonely and depressed. I pulled myself together tho for my son and husband. Sometimes I need someone to check on me. To really check on me and understand my pain and life. I don't have that.
Do you ever feel like you're just not right in the head? Like I know our bodies are wrong but does everything just make you feel so abnormal and no one gets it? That's how I felt but I think I'm ok now. It's probably my Cymbalta withdrawal that is making me feel like this so I'm trying to work through it.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Quiet. Not the first trick or treater. On a fibro flare and my big toe is throbbing. Has a pedicure last weekend, and the third is red. My daughter's coming to look at it tomorrow because it hurts to put pressure on it. Other than that it was a nice day. I hope yours was a good one too!๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒผ

By the way, my Cymbalta withdrawal had me crying and most as everything. My PCP called me in a mild dose of Nortriptyline which actually helped the withdrawals. It's a different antidepressant. ๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒผ

Oh yeah, it was also pouring rain

Rain and cold. I kept the lights off and watched tv. I had the same problem when I went off the cymbalta also. It's been 2 months. They said it was masking the PBA. Now I get to deal with crying at nothing, when I haven't shed a tear in 8 yrs. Wonderful.
