I've been able to keep up the new exercise and relaxation program for more than a week now. It's a lot harder on the weekend days because my husband is home and we try to coordinate our activities. We finally had a chance to sit down and talk about all this new fibro stuff on Saturday and he on board with the program now too. I think this will make it easier for me to do what I need to do.

I've just recently increased my dose of Cymbalta as I continue to titrate to the prescribed dose. This increase has made me much sleepier. I'm finding it difficult to function, especially when sitting still like today when I drove to my husband's grandma's house, which is 30 miles. By the time I had arrived I probably shouldn't have been on the road because I was so sleepy. But, of course, I had to drive home. Yikes. Obviously I made it home safe but I'm still very sleepy and have a migraine coming on.

I know this is a side effect that will get better with time. Perhaps I'll just need to stick a little closer to home in the meantime.


  1. Yes, indeed, I agree that until you are certain of the affects of the new dose sticking close to home and not driving make good sense. Won’t it be great if it truly helps ?~!

  2. Hope you got some rest, and the migraine didn't get the best of you. Take care.
