If you have been reading my previous blogs you'll know things haven't been so good recently. Consultants have let me down I feel and if it wasn't for my GP I think I would have given up by now. I have an appointment on Monday to see GP and I will ask what he expects is making things worse lately. I have been house bound all week apart from a medical I had to have on Wednesday set up by the DWP. Even more confused since then.
Does anyone else get feelings like this.

I definitely can sympathize with frustration. Recently, I've had a lot of non-fibro health problems, to the point that, between the PT, the allergy shots, and the actual doctor's appointments, it almost seems like appointments are all I do!
I know that I always have a fibro flare right after the hot weather appears. By later in the summer, I usually feel better again. No idea why, hopefully you will also improve soon.
Let's think about what you can do to just get some improvement in your quality of life, right now. Meditation? It's not a bad way to temporarily reduce pain. Music? Is there someone you can possibly visit with or call? Can you maybe go outside in the yard for a while? Buy some DVDs or something?

I have since seen my GP and he has put me on antidepresants to get me through this low point in my life. I have spoken to members of my family and I do feel as though a weight has been lifted, however I still feel guilty for my daughter who has put her social life on hold to care for me. its not fare as she is only 17 and should be enjoying herself.
The slightest thing and my mood either goes to a temper which isn't like me orI go off and cry whch is not like me either. I hope that this doesn't last much longer. The pain is aweful but I suppose I will have to live with it. If reincarnation is real then I must hve been bad in a previous life....

Lack of sleep KILLS me! I hope that the antidepressant helps. I am taking Cymblata and it really helps me. I seem to sleep better. I also take a muscle relaxer and melatonin before bed. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. I think the constant, unrelenting pain is the worst, though. Hang in there! Prayers and hugs, Diane

I haven't seen your blogs... I know we all tend to go through depressing times. I seem to have my ups & downs. I seem to be depressed when my hubby isn't being supportive. For some reason he got it in his head that my Rhumy says I will feel 100% better if I exercise all the time. I never heard him say that? Then supposedly his friend will be cured from ms because he takes special shots everyday... I have never heard of a cure for ms... So, my husband does not except this & tends to expect way to much from me. I get my days when I am just to frustrated & depressed. I don't think I would have those days if my husband was more supportive & not such an *** sometimes...
Anyhow, Cymbolta was great for my anxiety & pain! I wish I wouldn't of went off of it. But, after going through the withdrawals I don't want to go on it again either...
Don't worry about your 17 yr old, I'm sure she is still able to be a teen. I moved out when I was 15. Being young I was able to work 2 part time jobs & earn more $ on the side from other odd jobs while also getting my high school diploma. I paid for home schooling so I could graduate. But I was young & a very hard worker. It's amazing what you can do when you are young lol But, it was things like that, that made me who I am today. It taught me to be strong & responsible. I do my best to teach my kids responsibility & wish more kids were like that. You're daughter will be a better person from this experience. Our kids have to help out more around here because it's to much for me otherwise... But they live here to & make most of the messes lol My 12 yr old is a huge help with the baby (20 months). But, I think all kids should help out. They still get to go play & be a child. I had a tough childhood & don't remember many good times... So I want my kids to have everything I didn't.
Anyhow, you have every right to feel depressed, it happens. Just try to get through it one day at a time. Be Thankful for everything you do have. ♥
I have been a little better the last few days however the pain is still bad. I can hardly move today and therefore I still have to stay in bed. My daughter has just been offered a trip to a university for a day. I'm so proud. Enough to bring me out of the depression. At least for a while anyway.
Thanks for your hugs and prayers
