I am with you on this one, I have been feeling awful lately. I guess I am down in the dumps again. The pain and fatigue are really getting to me lately and working on my nerves. I often feel worthless and I have no quality of life when I get like this. I usually feel better if I get out of the house a bit if only for a little while, but it is so hard to make myself when I get like this. The arthritis in my back and the fibro and ibs and the ibs, it is just overwhelming lately. Additionally, I have applied and been denied disability and am in the appeal stage where i have to see the judge now; here it can take 18 mos. I have a lawyer and he is certain I will get it, but waiting is awful. Our finances are in a mess, we are behind and I have to wait to get some of my meds filled sometimes, (like now I am out of my hormone patch and my mobic), which doesn't help my nerves. My husband has had two surgeries since June and developed pheumonia, pleuracy, and partially collapsed lung... he doesn't get paid when out of work and was out for several weeks, so we are even further behind. I don't feel like keeping up housework or anything. Saw dr today who tells me to definaltely try to get hormone patches to help, because that can make my feel lousy without them and that being so young with these chronic problems just takes a toil on me and it is a viscious cycle. She says the fibro and arhtritis and my severe ibs are just really hard to live with and she is sooooo right. Anyway, I have just had a rough couple of weeks lately and in addition to that, everything has been rough lately with finances and my husbands health problems; and he never, ever gets sick. I just wish something would give... if I could get my disability and have some extra needed money coming in that would help tremendously, we could pay the bills without being behind and I could afford all my medicines at one time. I worry about
losing our home and keeping groceries and the power on; it just never seems to end. I am only 39 I am not supose to feel like this and I absolutely hate it, hate it, hate it!!!!! So, I know how this can make you feel. It seems like some people have theirs more under control than I do and I just don't know what elese I can do. I either sleep a whole lot or not at all and I know that makes things worse as well. Maybe one day when I have less stress I will feel some better; I hope anyway. I hope you will feel better so and I hope I will too.
Have a wonderful pain free day, Anne.
