Hi munchkin, I'm sorry you are feeling so down, the fibro is an awful to deal on its own without the depression, it's easy for people to think there is nothing wrong with us and have no idea of the battle we face each day. I to suffer with depression and I do have to take a lot of medication and they can make you feel like a zombie. Perhaps you could have a medication review with your gp, do you see a psychiatric nurse ? If not perhaps your gp could refer you ? I saw one for about two years and she was fantastic in everyway, she took me to the job centre apts and anywhere she could help me. I'm sure you would really benefit as the help with social services and occupational therapist. Failing that you can rant to me anytime xxxxx


thanks pennie i have a support worker from the mentel health people who comes round once a week and i have an appointment with a psychiatrist at the end of the mounth i was getting counciling and even she could beleive just how much has been going on and said its to much to cope with but i cant see what else i can do its honestly one thing after another and has been for some time now im so very tierd of it all and yes even just the fibro is enough with out all this other stuff i kinda feel cornnerd by other people and want scream at them to just leave me alone im fed up of putting a smile on my face and trying to act "normal" they all know i am ill and its very noticeablei can only walk a few steps as i get severe pain in my back,hips.legs.but thax anyhow for your responce i do appreciate it xx


Poor you, you sound really low (understandably) but take heart, things have got a funny way of working themselves out.

A few months ago I was sure that I couldn't cope & that things couldn't improve. Although very different circumstances, things seemed to be going from bad to worse - I even tried suicide, but now, only a few months later, my life is totally different.

Try & get some support, from family, friends, you GP or other support groups. People on this site were amazing, so use us if you need to. It's too hard to do it all alone.

Good luck, I hope things work out for you xxx
