In pain

Hi all, been in a lot of discomfort today with severe soreness like sunburnt feeling on my back, bought me to tears tonight. I am also feeling very depressed. I don't kmow if it's the change in the weather, tapering on prednisolone or my pip assessment coming up on Wednesday. Who knows but the fatigue, aching, weakness and soreness is really getting me down. My arms, legs and hands are like jelly/unsteady and limbs like lead weights when trying to do anything. I have the soreness on my face, forehead, eyelids, arms. I hate feeling so depressed because of it all. I suffer with bipolar as it is and everything going on with fibro and assessments along with a tribunal for my esa in September is stressful/causing anxiety and depression. Having hot sweats also but not on the menopause. My bones crack in my neck, ankles, shoulders. Feel I am falling appart. I am not me anymore.

Sorry you fill so down but you are under lot of stress with all the benefit stuff going on. Pain gets us down too and stops us sleeping like now. 🤦🏼‍♂️😴

I know. it's just worrying. doesn't help being a severe worrier lol as makes this condition flare up big time.

Hey Mandy - I hear you and understand what you are saying... It's gotten to the point it seems that every new doctor brings a new diagnosis.. I've started singing Kermit's song, "It's not easy to be green" to the words "It's annoying to be me..." ha ha.

I'm sorry you are where you are. Please keep in mind that stress just makes everything worse, so maybe you can try some meditation? I just close my eyes and chant something soothing, like" Peace, Love, Happiness", while I breathe in time with the mantra. When I am really stressed it works pretty well. It won't cure anything but it might help you stop from getting worse. Gentle hugs

Here's

Sometimes it helps to think about something that makes or made you happy... Like a life changing event that you still love. I will think about people actually. Go through each friend or family member and just let the love flow through me. Every time my mind slips sideways, I firmly pull it back to the thoughts at hand. Over time, I find it easier to concentrate... I hope things get a little easier for you. Worrying is counterproductive for this condition... Gentle hugs {}
