My previous pain doc (he retired) told me that fibromyalgia causes you to "Lose yourself".  I didn't understand that until I finally had enough relief until my pain finally became manageable.  (still have it but...) THEN I found , hiding behind the pain, anxiety, depression and PTSD.

I have been an angry man.  I just didn't have control (u9ntil now) finally having found a solution to my psych issues I finally feel that I have the tools to stop myself from doing or saying something .  this is something I could never do.

My anger, and lack of control, hurt my family (mainly my wife),  You might even say I was emotionaly abusing her (God help me!) .  but after taking GABA my anger is nearly gone.  I would say that mine is now a normal ANGER response.

I feel like a new man and everyone I know can see the diff. 

does this make sense?


Times are tough when "Happy Hour" is your nap.
My mind not only wanders, sometimes it leaves completely!


I can definitely understand where you are coming from.
I will put you in the trunk, and help people look for you, DON'T TEST ME.


Yeah... I can totally relate. I struggle daily to try to be the kind of person I'd like to live with and generally fail miserably.
Where God leads, His hand always provides keep Calm and code on....
