How Do You Deal With The Anger And Depression That Tend To Be A Part Of Chronic Illness?

I have to give cymbalta the credit for keeping me sane. Without lt, I don't know what I might do. I still have moments of anger & I do get depressed when the pain gets so bad I can't do anything. My husband is pretty observant and trys not to upset me.

Let them know u hurt. They will learn empathy. They make help out more. So many disregard fibro. They can understand.

For me I am allways trying to hide it, sometimes that makes it worse, but my grandchildren are around a lot . I can't let my 13 yr. old granddaughter see me like this. But the best thing for me are the grand children they can cheer me up in a heartbeat! I am in severe pain every day all day , but when they come they truly are a big help

I write it all down .. Every moment of it every swear word every feeling every thing I'm feeling every thing I feel for everyone around me at the time and then when I'm done and dusted I literally close the book on it.
I can re-visit those thoughts when I'm feeling stronger to see what maybe triggered it etc or just leave it alone but ultimately it's no longer going round and around in my head. Always a winner x
