Welcome to HealingWell. I am Kitt.
First of all you are not useless, stupid, slow, phony, old, and hopeless. You are a person with multiple problems and now also perhaps Fibro.
I would see an Internal Medicine Doctor to discuss your sx, all of them and ask if you have Fibro. JMHO
I am glad you were wise enough to check yourself into the hospital. That is awesome and I wish others who need immediate help would do the same.
Please don't put yourself down as nurses get sick too......I am a nurse and I have depression, anxiety, skin cancer, a herniated disk and other issues I deal with but by far the toughest one is the depression.
Chronic Illness and Depression go hand in hand. Depression is a natural part of dealing with a chronic illness. When your body is challenged physically, it often times challenges the affects your brain chemicals which can lead to depression. Not to mention that with a chronic illness a person is dealing with an avalanche of new experiences both physical and emotional and that can affect their emotional health.
Please know we are here for you and keep talking with us. I did a small edit on your original post and thank you so much for reading the rules.
Again a warm welcome to Healing Well.
