My Day

I've enrolled in another clinical trial, this one for a medication that works on "fibro as a whole", i.e., it's not a sleeping pill, not a pain pill, but will help with both symptoms. 

The problem is, I have to go cold turkey on my other meds for a week before I can start theirs. Twice today, I blacked out from the pain. When I say "I feel like garbage", I'm not kidding, because that's where I came to ... with my shoulder in the bathroom wastebasket.

So much for anyone who claims that I'm imagining things.  This is what the medical profession calls an "objective symptom", i.e., incontrovertible proof that there's something wrong.  Although there are some quacks who won't believe it unless they see it for themselves.
