Ahoy! Guess I should do an #introduction.
I'm Bruno, from the land of the 100000000 codfish recipes, Portugal.
I love #FOSS and #Privacy, and I volunteer with Fosshost.
I also run an Arch-based repository, blog about the hell of living with fibromyalgia, and love webcomics and dad jokes 😅.
I've been on and off from the #fediverse since the Identi.ca times, but now that the smelly Musk is buying Twitter, I'll be more active here.
Continuing the #introduction
My fibromyalgia blog address is https://fibrohell.github.io/
If you have a #FOSS project and need hosting, please apply at https://fosshost.org. Please read Fosshost's wiki first, to learn about the eligibility criteria https://docs.fosshost.org/general/application/
If you want to check my software repository, the address is https://userrepository.eu
Also, I have a personal blog at https://blog.brunomiguel.net, mostly written in European Portuguese
@brunomiguel não conhecia o fosshost. Seria algo adequado para ter um graph colectivo de logseq ou um vault de obsidian colectivo p ex sobre medicina como host? Usando p ex o GitHub cm fonte do código?
@josegustavomartins claro que há sempre exceções, mas para ser criada uma o projeto tem de fundamentar muito bem o porquê
@brunomiguel I'm a fellow sufferer of fibromyalgia. Mine started when I was 15 years old though. If you find anything that really helps, share please haha.
@joseph so far, only transcranial magnetic stimulation provided me some relief (only for a few days), and weed during the high
@brunomiguel have you already gone through the various fibromyalgia meds? None of them seem to really help me.
@joseph I've taken a ton of pain killers, antidepressants, muscle relaxants and some other stuff I can't remember. Only tramal 200mg has some effect, only in preventing the pain from getting even worse
@brunomiguel so far voltaren gel is the most helpful for me, but that isn't saying much. It helps enough so that I can get SOME sleep on the bad nights. I'm not sure how safe covering large portions of my body with it is though, so I don't use it often.
I'm currently trying Gabapentin.
@joseph happy to know voltaren works for you. I have to use (very) hot water bottles to try to decrease the pain. I've burned my back a few times because of that xD
I don't think I ever taken Gabapentin, but I've been prescribed so many meds in almost two years that I don't remember most names
