Having A Bad Time

toots2889 - July 29

I always look forward to summer, as my pain levels are usually better for me. Not the case this summer.Ive been struggling, and my pain levels have been pretty extreme at times.My doc. & I decided to try putting me back in physical therapy,to see if that would help.

Well, I got one session in with my therapist, when i was in a car accident. I was hit from behind, while i was stopped in traffic. The driver of the other car wasnt paying attention to the fact that we had stopped, and hit me. Now ive really been in extreme pain, and now my neck is also bothering me. I guess you could say im kinda ticked off because, its not like i wasnt having enough problems before this. Im sorry for ranting on, but im just having a bad day and needed to vent. Thanks for listening.

Sorry to hear that you were in a car accident, I know it seems unfair that things happen the way they do. But, we have to figure they happen for a reason. I was in physical therapy for my first car accident when my second accident happened and then found out I have fibromyalgia and my pain would be life long. I did find good reason for my first accident, I was definetely heading down the wrong path in life when it happened. The second accident I am unsure what good it has done for me other than making me a stronger person, just as the fibro has made me stronger, but, in more of a spiritual way. I am very determined not to let it get me down, even though there are moments I feel very much like giving up I know I must go on.

I just thought I would share, because I know I feel very alone at times, like no one else knows what I am going through. This board really helps alot! Thanks everyone.

I totally believe Everything happens for a reason too! My Mom is one of those people who "regrets" almost everything in her life for one reason or another. She ALWAYS looks at the negative...EVERY time. I think I may have been that way too (not knowing anything different) but at least 10 years ago (maybe longer) I started thinking differently. Started looking at the positive in everything instead of the negative.

Getting pregnant with my son changed my life, I got away from all the partying (I was pretty young then) Getting pregnant with my 2nd child finally got me out an extremely abusive relationship. And even going through 8 years of that relationship, it really did make me a better person and I don't regret 1 day of it. And my 3rd child actually saved my marriage (I almost totally screwed up and left my husband early on in our marriage) Even my husband losing his job last year was actually a good thing. He finally decided after all these years to use his God given talent and went back to school to change careers. (he's an amazing artist!)

I don't know why I got fibro...haven't figured that out yet. But I know years from now I will look back and be able to pin point exactly why and what good came out out of it, just like I can with everything else.

anyways...I guess what I'm trying to say is that yes, having fibro sucks and it's frustrating and I do feel alone at times. But I just have to keep thinking that some day I will see the positive in this too. Maybe it's just something as simple as finding this website and being able to help one person have a better day.

I think we all know how you feel, toots2889, and if you need to vent, then Go For It! I know what it's like to think "I've really had enough, I really don't need anything else to deal with" but as the old saying goes "whatever doesn't kill you will only make you stronger!" I guess instead of feeling bad about everything you are going through right should be damn proud of yourself that you're getting through this! And it may not feel like it at the moment, but you will get through this too and you will be a stronger person for it.

Take care, Stacey :o)

Thanks for the comments! They did make me feel better, and im gonna look at it as a positive thing instead of a negative one. Its just hard when your in so much pain.

Hows everyone else doing? Id love to hear from you all.Take care for now and God Bless You All.

I totally understand sometimes it's "easier said than done". I wish I could say that I'm always positive about all of this, but I'm not. Like right now...I don't know if you read my post yesterday, but I'm definitely having a hard time dealing with all of this. To make a long story short, I'm just frustrated that I literally have to pick 1 chore over another. And because I've got so many things going on, my house is being totally neglected. Not to mention I'm doing too much, so I'm hurting more, but I HAVE to get these things done or no one else will.

Any ways...Like I said...It's so much easier said than done to always stay positive with this. I came down on myself pretty hard last night but then I decided to just go to bed, get some sleep, and not worry about anything until today. but I guess we always have to keep reminding ourselves to at least keep trying to stay matter whether we want to or not.

Take Care, Stacey :o)
