Dealing with CP...and especially if it's at the higher end of the pain scale...and then life issues on top of that...can sure be a double whammy!
I will agree with retiredmom here....and have found that time is one of the few things that will eventually work. I'ts of little comfort...having to wait on time...because we need phisical and mental relief now. I generally keep a few BT meds put back...and have used them for times such as this...for a little extra comfort. We do have to be careful though...and hop off of them quickly lest we become dependent on the temporary relief.
I find that stress in any form...can add to the pain being greater for a time.
I'm not suggesting that we take extra BT meds for our mental health....but am suggesting...that when we bring our pain down to levels of more comfort...we then may be able to deal with lifes troubles a little eaiser.
Again...I'm sorry for your loss...and do give yourself plenty of time to grieve. Everyone is different...no time line for it either. The best thing is to share as you have done here...we are family of sorts...and care when our members are experiencing pain and suffering...including depression....and so forth.
