I've been posting frequently on the Fibro and Anxiety forums lately. I'm dealing with a tremendous amount of pain, anxiety and depression caused by my Fibromyalgia. This last year to 18 months have been extremely difficult. The PTSD and depression has become bad enough that I need medication and counselling.
My decision to leave the forum is that I'm wondering if reading and replying to posts is causing my anxiety to be worse than it needs to be. Might be causing what is called "health anxiety". I need to give my mind and psysche and break; a chance to get well. Not be thinking about health related things so much. That seems to be the only thing in my life these days; always talking about illness.
I won't be checking in or reading any threads. Not for a while anyway. I just want to see if by doing this, I improve.
My thoughts and prayers will be with each one you as they always have been!
