Hi I’m new to this site and unsure what to expect to be honest. I was diagnosed with CRPS only last week after a back operation in June last year. Nothing went wrong with the op but my nerves just haven’t settled back down I suppose. I’ve been really struggling with the pain but mostly I’ve been struggling with my emotions and my frustration with being in pain all the time. I’ve even starting to hate people around me for doing the things I wish I could do. Is this ‘normal’? Will this go away? I also suffer from depression and have done for many years so I know this will be affected by everything going on.
I guess I’m rambling now but I don’t have anyone at home to talk to or to help gauge whether my emotions are normal at this stage.
Would love to hear back from anyone, doesn’t have to be with any advice just a friendly hello will do, maybe so I know I’m not alone with feeling this way.
