Anger

Anger

How does everyone deal with the anger? Being angry at yourself for allowing yourself to push too hard? Being angry because you push to do something fun with your family but by the end of the fun day you are so sore and exhausted that any little thing sets you off. Now the family thinks they did something wrong. How do you balance house dynamics?

Well for me the only time that I lash out is when I am beyond the pain point of no return and at that point everyone knows to leave me alone for as long as it takes. Then when I am doing better I always apologize to anyone that I think I might have offended. All of the people around you should be aware of when you are being pushed beyond your limits and know when you need help. Don't be afraid to say NO because if you don't take care of yourself first you are no good to anyone else. I hope this helps. Gentle hugs

I had to learn that it is not our fault, we have a medical issue. I tell my family it is not their fault sometimes I push my self to do family things but you learn what your limitations are you try to find middle ground. You can still participate but dont push too much.Stop being angry at yourself..you gotta give yourself a break...

if u haven't had Fibro very long there are several things to try talk to your dr. maybe he can prescribe something for anxiety or see a psychiatrist where u can both talk about and he can prescribe medicine or check into natural ways such as doing yoga or deep breathing in a quiet area for a few minutes. The best thing to do is check out info on the internet! God bless!

Over many years of dealing with this overdoing then paying the price I've turned the anger into frustration and then acceptance. Such as this past July 4 th weekend I knew beforehand that I'd pay a price and tried to plan and have others do most of the work... I feel frustrated the past few days with lack of energy but have accepted that the family get together was worth paying the price of more pain and fatigue... Don't know if I made sense here.

Anger will suck more energy from you...Acceptance (thought can be difficult to do) helps.
