My psychiatrist(s) and pain doctor have made recommendations, and now a referral has been put through for the government to decide whether or not to fund me to go to Homewood (a rehab type facility in Ontario, Canada).
It is primarily a mental health clinic - but my psychiatrist believes it is my best chance to potentially see other doctors who would be more willing to delve into the medical issues and tests that can not be done in this region of the world.
If the government doesn't approve it, obviously, I'm not going. If the government does approve it, I'll probably be going whether I want to or not. I don't know how I feel about being treated in a detoxing facility, especially when I only take about 1/2 of the pills I am prescribed. I have never shown drug addict behavior in my entire life...but I have never been able to detox without having TERRIBLE side effects (primarily from SSRI's and Benzos).
I'm tired of this complicated situation, but alas...I keep going.
I see an endocrinologist early in the year, as I've had a few tests with low parathyroid, so we'll see how it all works out.
What does everyone think? Do you believe in the use of medication for illnesses such as Fibromyalgia, MECFS, and an unknown autoimmune problem? Or do you support the natural supplement route? What is working for you? Have any of you been treated in major facilities?
