Comment on Dear Lyrica Commercial: As A Real-Life Fibromyalgia Patient And Not Just An Actor Playing One On TV, I Have To Say That Your Commercials Are EXTREMELEY Misleading by Carolyn http://www.jennyryan.com/2016/04/dear-lyrica-commercial-as-a-real-life-fibromyalgia-patient-and-not-just-an-actor-playing-one-on-tv-i-have-to-say-that-your-commercials-are-extremeley-misleading/comment-page-1/#comment-255475 Wed, 19 Jul 2017 13:34:42 +0000 http://www.jennyryan.com/?p=12003#comment-255475 From a fellow fibromyalgia sufferer, great job describing what a typical day looks like. I resent the lyrica commercials because they show the person returning to normal activities! Even after I have my pain to a bearable level I can’t possibly function like I used to. Maybe they should use real fibro patients. Anyway, great job and thank you for validating what we are all going through. You are a true inspiratio

Comment on Dear Lyrica Commercial: As A Real-Life Fibromyalgia Patient And Not Just An Actor Playing One On TV, I Have To Say That Your Commercials Are EXTREMELEY Misleading by Mary McCallan http://www.jennyryan.com/2016/04/dear-lyrica-commercial-as-a-real-life-fibromyalgia-patient-and-not-just-an-actor-playing-one-on-tv-i-have-to-say-that-your-commercials-are-extremeley-misleading/comment-page-1/#comment-255465 Tue, 18 Jul 2017 22:16:35 +0000 http://www.jennyryan.com/?p=12003#comment-255465 Thank you for this, my husband does the same thing. Except he is so med sensitive he cannot take any of those, one stopped his heart, epidural stopped his breathing, another he was losing his sight, another his memory and another he had no control of his anger. So he argues all the time with the TV. So far only thing that helps is morphine. Even medical marijuana does not help. So I fully understand your arsenal of fibro weapons we have one too. We had too get a massage bed to stop some of his issues and we just got a chair so he does not feel so isolated in the bedroom, expensive yes but very helpful.
P.s. It helped him knowing someone else is doing all the same things he does.

It took me 1/2 day to fill 4 weeks. I find it extremely frustrating. Any suggestions to make it easier?

Comment on Dear My Husband: This Is Why My Phone Phobia Is Actually A GOOD Thing by Jenifer Hunter http://www.jennyryan.com/2016/08/dear-my-husband-this-is-why-my-phone-phobia-is-actually-a-good-thing/comment-page-1/#comment-253634 Fri, 17 Mar 2017 05:24:47 +0000 http://www.jennyryan.com/?p=11706#comment-253634 Um, ok, is this another one of fibro’s little gifts? My phone phobia is beyond pathological and I just assumed it was one of those random quirks that made me the snowflake that I am. I would totally love to move this to the fibro category because it is seriously embarrassing (I can hardly even listen to VM’s, as POTUS likes to say, “SAD!”).

Comment on Bipolar Brain Part 2: Liar Liar Pants On Fire by Debbie http://www.jennyryan.com/2017/02/bipolar-brain-part-2-liar-liar-pants-on-fire-2/comment-page-1/#comment-253540 Tue, 07 Mar 2017 08:55:46 +0000 http://www.jennyryan.com/?p=12415#comment-253540 Jenny, I love your website, in fact it’s one of the few I’ve got listed on my own blog not that I’ve many readers but a little helps go a long way.
Each time I venture on here I’m muttering to myself “oh I so know how you mean!” and, “she’s describing me!” and “although I hate it that another person has to be like me, I’m so blooming pleased I’m not alone!”
I’m bipolar and damned fibro came along a few years ago plus a whole host of other things related to/not related to fibro. So it’s websites and blogs like yours that help me so much.
Thanks lovely one, many blessings of the old Crone to you. Xx

Comment on Product Review: Quell by Joyce Killebrew Barnett http://www.jennyryan.com/2016/12/product-review-quell/comment-page-1/#comment-253205 Fri, 10 Feb 2017 00:57:07 +0000 http://www.jennyryan.com/?p=12349#comment-253205 I’ve suffered from herniated discs, OA, both knees bone on bone, and 10 years of disabling fibromyalgia. I took NSAIDS for too many years and develped stomach ulcers. Acetaminophen didn’t work well and nearly ruined my liver. I am looking into a cervical spine fusion and have had epidurals that didn’t help and that were excruciatingly painful, radiofrequency nerve ablations have helped for about 10 years, but are becoming less helpful. I finally obtained a prescription pain medicine, oxycodine. It helped some, but it exacerbated the depression I experience and never gave me total relief. Plus I am now addicted to it.
I started using the Quell a month ago, feeling that I had nothing to loose with the 60 day full refund policy. It feels like a miracle! I am experiencing hours of total pain relief, my energy levels are increasing, the depression is lifting, I’m sleeping better, life is good. Is the Quell perfect? ….Almost!
