Hi everyone. As some of you may be aware, my sypmtoms have been going on for about 8 months, and things seem to be getting worse and worse each month. So far, I have been coping with it all well and remaining as positive as possible, but over the last week I have started to feel anxious and depressed. I am so stressed with my university work. I'm a 2nd year occupational therapy student, and supposed to be going on placement next month! I am worried about how I am going to manage a full time, demanding healthcare job with these symptoms, even though it is so important to me and I absolutely love my course. I'm so exhausted and feeling very low. I'm also not sleeping well. Continually being woken up by either the pain, or my inconsiderate flatmates! I don't know what to do... Does anyone have any advice for coping with the emotional aspect of this condition? I have a very supportive family and boyfriend, who is visiting me tomorrow night and he always cheers me up so hopefully that will help. Sorry for the rant. Hope you are all feeling okay x
