I battled Fibro, too, for several painful years. Shockingly, almost all of my pain went away when I got on the right meds for my RA. I also have had depression, but am on a great med for me now which makes me forget I have it. Please, until you are f...

Are these normal? These thoughts have nothing to do with my reality, but they can be really absurd and inappropriate. How can I suppress?
