Hi karen, I know that but i alwatys managed to come up with something but he like cant you talk about this .I havent been diagnosed with fibro but do have lupus and depression and i know that he doesnt undrstand why i want to sleep alot some days and dont want to do anything,
you said something about putting it all behind me i dont know if i can do that because of th e stuff he did but i know that i need to think of my health and my daughter also yes i have one child who is 7 and she means the world to me and i dont knwo what i would do if it wasnt for her and my cat well our cat me and my daughter that is well i just find myself getting more impatient with my daughter as she wont listen to me and i dont have the eneregy to do that stuff you know .
I guess i could get some literture on fibro and stuff for him. I was hospitalized in 2006 and i dont think he understood the depression then either cause when he came to visit i didnt want anything to do with him but i did pay attetntion tomy daughter so that i ok. but i know that it seemed to me that he was more worried about me working the me getting better you know what i mean. well i will stop here i am rambling on again sorry about that Dawn

No it isn't any of his business what you talked about
in your session. But maybe you and your therapist could think of something to tell him when you come out of the office.
Living with fibromyalgia and depression is hard Dawn. Don't expect yourself to be able to do a lot every day. Some days you have to do less. Could you give your husband some literature to read about
fibro and depression so he might understand more. Maybe print something off of the fibro forum. Or some other information off of the internet. It is hard for other people to understand that we are in pain all of the time.
It is so hard to have a relationship without trust. I don't know why he doesn't trust you, but it sounds like you have a reason not to trust him. If you want to continue the relationship, you might have to put that all behind you. Some people can live with it and some people can't. I guess it depends on each individual. And how much you are willing to tolerate.
Try to do something nice for yourself. Maybe take a nice walk, or a nice bath to relax. You deserve to do something nice for yourself. Take your time focusing on getting stronger, continue your counseling and come here for support. We are all here for you. Keep posting.
