Need to rant!

After having a maximum 3 hours sleep last night, I have spent today like a zombie! managed to clean, wash my bedding and cook 2 lots of tea for the family.

my back aches so much I could cry, I have got a pounding headache and I'm having one of those days where I feel just a complete burden to everyone!!!!!

I feel like no one cares about me and my health and that people think its 'in my head'

starting to doubt myself and wonder f they are correct.

sorry for the rant, needed to vent and have no one to vent too :(

Awe ZoeLou47 so sorry to hear you are feeling like this today, you have done a lot today. Maybe you could take some time to pamper yourself this evening. Even hand cream and a nail file makes me feel like I am pampering, take care I hope you sleep better this evening. :) x


Hi Zoelou47 I see you have recently joined, so firstly I'd like to welcome you to our wonderful forum ☺ oh I do feel for you, I remember it well, running around after a family and feeling so exhausted and in pain I wanted to sit and cry but there wasn't time to.

Have you ever looked at the spoon theory, a lot of members find it very useful in being able to pace yourself and lessen the severity of a flare. It's worth checking out honey. I'm sorry you are feeling like you are and you rant as much as you want, that's what we are hear for my friend.

I hope you can manage to get a better sleep tonight and things won't seem so bad tomorrow.

Peace, luv n light

Hi. I understand. I've had people like that to me.


Hi zoelou47, that's why we are here, don't be hard on yourself , fibro can be a nightmare especially when you'renot sleeping or getting help from your family, sometimes I swear mine would starve if it wasnt for me, i am not able to cook much either but I do online shopping and buy them microwave meals at least I know that there is something if im not able to prepare something for them.

Take care hope you have a pain free sleep tonight

I think we have all felt like that at times and it is a horrible feeling.....I think you should give yourself a pat on the back (perhaps not!!! it may hurt) for doing all you have done...I really hope today is going to be better....but talk to us again whenever, gentle hug for Valentines Day xx


Hi Zoelou, I think you should be congratulating yourself for managing to cook, clean AND get bedding washed, despite barely sleeping and being in pain. It's not in your head it's in your damn body !! Please have a rest
