Men with Fibromyalgia

I’ve carried this cross of pain for nearly a decade and some days have been easier to get through than others, especially with no real pain control. Yes we men do make up a good number of people with chronic pain.

I moved to Florida one year and three months ago and since that time I have yet to find a doctor that believe in Fibromyalgia or that men get this disease as well as women.

Just like I haven’t found a physician here that believe that men get migraines, I was told that is purely a women’s disease. I call bullshit on the medical community here in Brevard County Florida. I think all of you doctors need to go back to medical school. Also those of you doctors that are not from the United States and whose native tongue is not English, please try learning the language here a little better you are very difficult to understand.

I’ve been asked a few times why I don’t try natural route ie medical marijuana, even if I wanted to I cannot. The drug is still a Class I Narcotic according to the federal government and as I have a mental health license I have zero tolerance clause. Until such time that the federal government and my secular employer allow such a treatment I can’t even think to get it.

What’s the point of this post…it’s more of a venting rambling while I’m sitting here at work.

Let Us Give Thanks!

Today we gather around our tables to eat a feast created from human hands from the substance you created. We are assembled with family and love ones who give you thanks and praise this day and every day for all the blessings and lessons we learned. We ask that you be with the men and women who are not with their families this day whether they are called away for EMS/Police/Fire work and especially for those of our armed forces hold them dear and close to your heart. We give you thanks for the bountiful feast we are about to receive this do we pray through Christ our Lord through whom all good things flow.  Amen!
