This is a sadistic disease, the more you give in to it the worse it gets. You have to fight back and maintain a positive attitude. I know it sounds uncaring and insensitive to say get up and get busy when someone is hurting like we do. But if you give this cursed fibro an inch it will take a mile. Don’t give in to the seduction of depression. Don’t let fibro see you sweat…..spit in its face!
Find something you like to do and do it with all your heart. I have less pain when I do and I don’t notice the pain I do have as much when I am focused on accomplishing something.
We all have the thoughts you wrote about. The trick is not allowing them to own us. I choose another reality and I won’t settle for anything less... Please fight back my sister.
I think because this syndrome is invisible even we have a hard time moving on. But I look fine, I should be able to continue life as it was but think of people who suddenly lose a limb or become paralized, they need to adjust and keep living and people understand. There is no going back for any of us, we need to move on and adjust. But yes we are all going to get down somedays, it's hard not to when you feel so bad. Remember we are all here for each other!!! When you need a pick me up, come here and get a .
I hope everyone has a good day.
