Just can't take it anymore!

I seriously don't know if I can handle all of these feelings anymore😥 besides anxiety they say I have fibromyalgia so I'm always in pain. I'm just not enjoying life no matter how hard I try. I want to decorate my house but can't. I want to Make it feel like home so bad. I hardly have energy to wash my work clothes for the week. Can't relax have racing terrible thoughts. Dad has been in hospital is home now but not doing so well. Aunt also just out of hospital. Why can't I handle normal everyday things??? Want to marry my boyfriend but don't want him to have to deal with me as I am no fun 😥. Back to work tomorrow and haven't been able to relax one bit. Don't want to take Paxil for fear it will cause seizures and other things. Thanks to anyone who reads this!!! Love and hugs

So sorry life is so hard at present. Chronic pain does drag you down and you have managed so well. You may not think you are coping but you are doing lots right. You have a job and a boyfriend and it is horrible to feel you are not managing as well as some. One step at a time. I find trying to meditate helps, even tho I'm rubbish at it. Just taking five minutes to concentrate on breathing and noticing the thoughts that rush in and letting them pass and bring your mind back to the breath.

Virtual hug to you
