Hey, I am new here but also post on the fibromylagia forum. I have been really down because of pain. It is constant. I feel as if I am nothing but pain. I have suffered with depression since I was a small child. I was always a sick child, going to the dr. alot. To this day my parents don't believe anything is wrong with me. I feel alone a lot with all that I deal with, try not to impose on family too much. Just trying to make my way on my own.
 
Sorry to sound like a whiner, just having a tough time with pain and sleep, will be up awhile tonight.
 
Thanks for reading this.

Hi Sheila

Welcome to the Depression Forum, I am so sorry you have so much pain, I guess you are taking meds for it but are they working not as well as they should be perhaps? I know there is nothing worse than not being able to sleep, have you spoken to your doctor about that as well?

I think it is sad that you have had depression since you were a child and nobody believes you. The only thing I guess I can say is that people who have never had depression don't understand it and think you are faking it. I just wanted you to know that we understand on this forum and we are all here to support you as much as we can.

I hope you can get some relief soon from your pain and then perhaps you will be able to sleep. Keep posting Sheila and let us know how you are progessing.

Hi Sheila,
 
So happy that you posted over here.  We have a lot of caring and compassionate people on this forum.  I am sure that you will get some answers here. 
 
Keep trying, take life one day at a time.  That is all I can do especially with the fibro.  And actually it is a relief to me.  Sometimes it is one moment at a time.
 
Find ways to relax.  I know, easier said than done.  But not impossible.  Meditation has helped me a lot. 
 
Know that we all care about you here and that we will always answer your posts.
 
Take care my friend, keep posting and let us know how you are doing.
 
Hugs, Karen

Thanks everyone, so nice to have everyone wish me well. Today is ok. I have been on the couch all day resting my knee. I was able to get in the shower which somedays is a big deal. The fibro. pain has been a real issue. I have vicodin but only have a few left, ibuprofren never helps and my stomach is already burning from all the other meds. Just gonna try and do the best I can with what I have.

Thanks again everyone.

That is about all we can do Sheila,
 
Use your vicodin sparingly, as I am sure that you are.  I have been taking six 10mg a day for a few years now.  So I really need to have it when I need it.  I know how it is to run short.  One time I forgot about it and had to go a few days without it because of the weekend.  I forgot to call the doctor for my refill.  Believe me, that was no fun. 
 
I hope that you can ride it out.   Know that we are here for you to support you in any way that we can.
 
Take care my friend.
 
Hugs, Karen
