I too have fibromyalgia. I also moderate the fibro forum, so I am sure that we have talked at one time or another. But I would love to welcome you to the depression forum.
It is so hard dealing with fibromyalgia, then to add the children and your husband onto that. I actually got mad when you said that he considered you 'useless'. You are not. I am lucky if I can get the dishes done every day. So you are doing a lot!!!
I do agree that you need to pat yourself on the back and have some time for yourself. It will get you farther in the long run. Just with the fibro, I find myself neglecting myself. So I know with all you have to do, you surely aren't taking the time to self nurture. That is so important for you right now.
I am glad that you are going to therapy, and I think a psychiatrist is a good idea. I see a psychiatrist and a psychologist also. It works out well. I am concerned about
your daughter also. If she threw up over hearing the word divorce, she could be very insecure right now. And very frightened. So you might want to consider having her get somebody that she can talk to also. It is really important, it sounds like she is at a delicate age right now and it scares me to think how much of a toll this could put on her.
Your husband doesn't sound very compassionate. Has he ever read any information on fibromyalgia? It might be time for some education for him. You need him to understand what you are going through.
In the meantime, keep posting. We are here for you.
