Re: Personality Changes in Fibro and CFS
talk to your doctor. that sounds more like your meds are altering you. personality changes can be related to many health issues. we get sick, something changes. normal. i went to a wonderful shrink for 9 years. with his help i learned about choices and decisions. i choose to be happy, i choose to laugh. while that may sound easy it was not so easy 15 years ago when all this started. i thought i had a handle on it all but i was wrong. i was changing and did not like what i was seeing.
i think i was lost. alone within and lost in a body i did not know. i grew quiet, spoke seldom and withdrew from everyone. not healty.
tho i am not the bouncing ball i was i am content with who i am now. laughter is again my best friend. mostly i laugh at myself. i give myself one day a month to feel sorry for me and the rest of the time i just live each day and find my bits of joy in every moment.
speak with your husband and consider getting a helper. that's all a shrink is, a helper. i went to a psychotherapist. no drugs, just help. learned new skills for living in this ever changing body. nothing has helped me more than having healthy coping skills for every day life.
