Hi everyone. It's been a while since I have posted anything. Lately, I really haven't felt up to getting on the computer. I live in Indiana, and it has been sooooo cold here recently. It is killing me. I hurt EVERYWHERE, and it is so hard to do the things that I need to do. To make it all worse, a few days ago, I went to Indy with my sister to help her with her oldest son while her youngest was in a doctor's appointment. Then we went to the mall. I was feeling all right except for the cold, and I thought we would only be there 2 hours tops. I was way wrong. We were there for about 7 hours, and I was watching both the boys, and it was just so hard. It was killing me, and I really payed the price for it the next few days afterward.
It is all just making me really depressed. I just want to be able to deal with this illness. I don't have anyone that can help me. My husband is there for me, and he is great, but I don't have anyone to give me any ideas on how to make the pain less, on how to make the depression less. I take pain meds and an antidepressant. But they only help so much. I just feel so lost and alone. My grandma, who also has fibro, went back to Florida, so the only way I can talk to her is on the phone. It makes me feel like I have lost part of my support system.
I know that I need to be in therapy, but my last therapist was such a witch with a b that I had to quit seeing her. I need a therapist who understands fibro, someone who can help me deal. I just don't know where to find such a person. I am going to look it up, but I don't think there are even any support groups that I can go to around my area.
I appreciate you all letting me vent and everything. If anyone has any support or advice, I would really appreciate it.
