... My mom has fibromyalgia and has lost 40 pounds over the last 4 years and is now 87 pounds. She has? been taking 3 pain pills daily for 4 years and is a shell of herself. I live out of state, as does my sister and we have tried interventions but the constant response is "I have to take pain pills for the rest of my life because of my fibromyalgia" My mom is a social worker and refuses to go to a therapist... and my question is, has anyone struggled with this type of thing? What can I do? Is this legit? I'm so upset that her doc is still prescribing... feels wrong to me. Any guidance would be helpful... she is only 56 and used to be an intelligent happy woman.. now is completely opposite
