depression is getting to me
2 Replies
lumper - May 1

I am just so depressed. I am sick of the pain and the fatigue. I feel like I do nothing but lay on the couch and yell at my kids. I am taking an antidepressant and a sleep aid. I also have pain relievers but nothing seems to be working. It is raining and that seems to increase my symptoms but I don't know how to get through it. It seems as if I am all alone because nobody in my family understands. If I hear "You don't look sick" one more time I might scream! I guess I should suck it up. My family really is pretty good. I just needed to vent. I usually have a real sunny personality ha ha.

I know how you feel. Go for it. It is ok to vent here! I wish I could say something to help. I know it is easier said than done cuz I never seem to do it, but do you have someone to take care of the kids so that you can have some alone time? Maybe get a massage or manicure/pedicure, or just do something for yourself? My family gave me a massage gift certificate for Christmas and I haven't even used it yet :-( Take care and hope you are feeling better.

I can so relate Lumper. I have been where you are over and over again in the 40+ years that I have fibro. When I am feeling as depressed as you feel right now it is hard to think that there are days that will be better. But there will be. Just hang in there. Talked to your doctor, maybe you need a change of meds or try to get up and move around. Now that the weather is getting nicer (the rain wont last forever) go for a walk. Clear your thoughts. Do something nice for yourself. Just no that there are many of us out here that understand. I hope you feel better soon. Brandy
