Fibromyalgia Action UK


Hi all sorry for my depressive post. I don't wish to leave the community, you have all been so good for me. Sorry to a friend I upset on here as well. The worst thing about this fibro is depression but I am fighting it andwill not give in, come to far. I have closed myself off and iI need you all to get me back and out of my head.

Only people on here can understand.

We all become a little lost sometimes and behave or say something we didn't mean.

I'm sure that all your friends on here will understand and support you anyway they can.

Pls don't be too hard on yourself, I know that is easier said than done.

You've made a start by posting and that is good. I do hope that all goes well and you get the help and support you deserve.

Lots of soft hugs and positive energy :) xxxxx


Thank you x

Don't apologise about being depressed. Who, when suffering from constant pain and fatigue, would not be depressed?

Top that off with the amount of stress you have been under recently and it's not really surprising that you are feeling so down.

Real friends understand and will be there for you when you need them.

Thinking of you and sending you lots of love



Well don't leave then Dont know you but woild like too Iv got Fibromyalgia and Tinnatas too so life is hell at times

Hi Cathy21,

New to this site,but saw your post and thought I would say hi.

It's hard dealing with everything,I also suffer depression,and seem to upset those around me without meaning to.

Don't get to down,talk to us all, after all is that not what we are all here for!!!

To see each other through bad times.

Scream at us if it helps

Just stay with us. Xxx


Hi I used to be around for 2014 and disappeared into a dark place for the last 6 months but yesterday I kind of had a melt down in court over my pip and last night I had a major rant on here ,and everyone here is fantastic ,you support others here when you can ,and they support you it's the most amazing place ,today I took myself to GP and told him everything I have been dealing with on top of this horrendous condition which I am ashamed to say and it's come back to bite me on the bum literally didn't believe was real yes I was one of those . And he said be kind and gentle and selfish with yourself it's not surprising you went a little loopy yesterday anyone one would without your illness without all the outside influences your also dealing with , so don't worry Ken ,gins ,zen ,sian and I missed one but the sleeping pills are kicking in but are wonderful administrators keep us focused and on the right path take care ,don't worry you be fine healing hugs .

I am so genuinely sorry to read that you verbalise feeling low & you may be depressed and I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck. Fibro can, and does bring out the dark clouds but I know that you are a unique individual and with the right support I hope you can find the strength to overcome.

Please do not be offended but I have pasted you the telephone number for the Samaritans below. I have done this out of friendship and concern for a fellow sufferer. If you ever need somebody to talk to please do not hesitate to ring them. If you are short of money they will ring you back.ii

I want to genuinely and sincerely wish you all the best of luck.

All my hopes and dreams for you



Cathy you are not alone. We all have our bad times & better times. No one is perfect. You çan please some of the people some of the time but you can't please all of the people all of the time. You will always have someone here with a non judgemental listening ear and a supportive shoulder to cry on. Be kind to yourself, Mags xx


There are times we all go through shutting people out. The easy part is letting them back in. The friends that support you will understand. Those that don't well bring negative that you don't need. Just be honest and see were it goes. Just know we understand and are here for you!


HI Cathy. As is said above it's normal to be down on occasion and don't beat yourself up. Yes we do upset each other from time to time, as long ass it's not vindictive it's normal. One of the good things about on line is you don't have to look each other in the eye. Take a breath and come out fighting. You used the right concept. Mutual support. So feel free to have a rant to (not at) us, or PM someone.

Hugs xx


Hello Cathy,

In my case, depression and Fibro go hand in hand. If it helps to know this, you are not alone. I have seen the kindness that this forum offers. I hope that the dark clouds soon clear for you.

Best wishes.



Don't leave as where would you go to that would understand you as well as us who are fellow sufferers. Don;t worry if you think you have hurt or offended someone as we all have thicker skins than you realise as I am sure we have all been there and worn the T shirt at times. Illness can make us say things on the spare of the moment which we instantly regret but that happens in a healthy life as well it is just lifes rich pattern.

Depression is a horrible illness as my OH suffers from it badly and I see how it affects him. You have other things wrong as well and with what you have been through we can all understand why you would want to retreat into yourself. Even if you don't want to post and sometimes having a rant can do you good just read our posts as there are some life affirming people on here.

Hi Cathy 21. ..glad you decided to not leave....I hope you got my message in response to your upset post on my post 'To fight or not to fight' a few days ago....I recognised that urge to withdraw from others as a battle within myself many times in the past... well done you for overcoming it. Take care of you.
