Being On Edge?

Being On Edge?

Does anyone else feel like they are on edge most of the time? I have noticed that not only on my bad pain days anymore that I am very easily irritated and will be snappy when I don't mean to be. I am already taking meds for depression and anxiety, but now I wonder if maybe they should be adjusted or if it is just from the fibro?

@A MyFibroTeam Member @A MyFibroTeam Member - I am so pleased that someone brought that out into the open.

I find that when I am not feeling that good, I tend to be very "snappy" with my poor cat. Really don't mean to be. This "monster" of an illness has changed me so much. I always had so much when it came to patience...Since this "monster" has taken over my life it has changed my life completely.

Thanks for sharing this particular subject with us.

I realize that patience is virtue - - try telling that to someone who has Fibromyalgia. Life is just not the same with it.

THOUGHT FOR TODAY: When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot, hang on, and swing!

I am always tense and easily irritated also. I hate that part of this fibro but there are times I just can't help being cross. I think it's part of fibromyalgia because I am on a antidepressant that works quite well most of the time.
We are worn out mentally, physically and emotionally from constantly being in pain, exhaustion etc. and having our lives taken away from us. I know I am so frustrated 😤.

@Dori-I was pleased that the question came up. I too thought I was the only one that was getting crabby!!.

We can always blame it on the Fibro. I do find that since the Fibro I have less patience, especially on bad days.

This is what I like about this team. After reading other things that people post - - we realize that this is all part of it. It was a lonely life before finding this team. It is strange the different things that other people come up with and it makes you realize - -you are not alone.

Have a Blessed Easter....

I don't have issues with depression, but with the increase of my pain and fatigue, I have a really short temper (not like me at all). I am easily irritated and small things can irritate me immensely. I put it down to being in constant pain and feeling exhausted. However, I would say that you should discuss this with your doctor as there may be another reason why you are feeling this way.

Wow, it's good to know that I'm not the only one who gets grouchy. I also worry more about meaningless things. I thought I was just a crabby old lady. To tell you the truth, I was really relieved when I read your statement.
