Tired, cranky and low mood-people don't want to be around me.

Help! I have been feeling so misearable with chronic fatigue, flu-like symptoms, no appetite chronic pain and depression as a result. I have been seeing a therapist twice weekly and I am on Zoloft for the depression issues and xanax for anxiety. I am on other meds also for other issues.

Has anyone had relationship issues as a result of chronic illness. I feel so horrible that I am not very friendly to my partner which is causing problems. I feel badly that she has to deal with me this way and having to tell her I feel horrible physically again on a daily basis. Of course my issues have disrupted our travel plans which doesn't help.



Any suggestions????

Diane

Hi sorry to hear of your problems.

I've no solutions I'm afraid.

When I moan I don't get sympathy much as hubby has his own health issues so it develops into a sort of 'who's worse' contest! Also my son also has ME so I try not to moan and keep the home 'upbeat' if possible for him.

We also have the travel issues as when my son has a good day foten I don't so its difficult to get us both ok at the same time.

Sorry not to be able to help but you're not alone with it!!

Re: Tired, cranky and low mood-people don't want to be around me.

I know how you feel.

I haven't felt like myself for the past 15 months since I've had this. Most of the time I just want to be alone, both because I don't feel like talking to people and I'm afraid I might offend them by either saying something I'll regret or not saying anything and giving one word responses.

I think it's important that other people realise that it's not simply a case of "lightening up" (as I've been told so many times by people who have no idea) as there's obviously something physically (neurologically/whatever) wrong and we can't simply choose how we feel.

A band-aid solution for me is to drink a really strong coffee which improves how I feel drastically (mentally at least) for most of the day.

I realise that this post probably doesn't help you at all, I thought I'd empathise.

Thank You-I really do appreciate your input. I hope you are feeling better-at least for today!
