  • I have been where you are now on so many occasions. My lifeline is my dogs. they snuggle up when I am down, throw a tennis ball at me when I really just want to be left alone, smile at me through my tears, but most important give me a reason to get through the next 24 hours. I live alone, have no family and only support is paid for carers. But my dogs give me the reason to carry on. Plus dont forget there is always someone on here 24 hours a day, so someone will always help you even if the darkest hours

  • hi julieeru just reading your blog to lynn , trying to make her feel better and i see that you are like me . sorry we are on this site so yes we are alike . no talking about dogs god i would be lost without them as i have to get up i have to see to them it isjust like having kidds but not as much mess. no my boys are grown and left home , well i have 4 dogs how many yo got . 2 chauhauas 1 16 1 18 months . and to jachauas 2 18 month sisters . so if i am to bad to take them out i can throu a ball in hall for them . but when i am bad they love nothink moor than cuddeling up in on the couch . god they do love that , like at the mo got 3 ontop of eachother and my old lady cuddeld up on otherside sofft hugs :)

  • Try and find a local FMS support group, it would good to make friends with people with th same condition, they would then understand why you have good and bad days. There are other FMS site online and you should find one that has local supports groups. Good Luck !!

  • aww Lynn, I know just where you're coming from. We're here and so are Samaritans, and hopefully a local FM support group. Have you look one up on the internet? Do you have nurses at your GP practice? They may know of one.

    Just take one hour at a time. Would you like to speak to someone? Have you got friends to talk to on the phone? Hugs to you hun. We know just how you feel. Please don't give up.

  • Aw Lyn, you sound just like me on a bad day!!. I have been fighting the system for the last few years and quite often have felt like it is all too much but it does eventually sort itself out. From experience I can tell you that you have to fight the system and not give in, you are not alone and we have to stand united and fight for our rights however hard it may be.

    I can honestly say that now I am getting things sorted it has taken so much presure off of me and the world seems a nicer place to be. When you feel so down there is only one way to go and that is up so here's to a brighter future for you. Take care xx

  • as all of us say we are behind you we all have bad days depression is a very bad illness i know from experience
