I’ve been so stressed out lately and I feel like I’m losing my friends and family for ranting out all my problems and the pains that I feel. Although I feel better when I let it out my head but not sure who will be willing to listen without paying then hundreds of $
I’ve checked in my area for a support group. Their are none. I was thinking of starting a informal one myself. This way I could meet others with the same pain. Like we do online. I’m afraid to loose my friends. I don’t bring up my pain to them. They ask and I give a short answer. One day at a time.
I see a counselor she really helps me work thru my problems.
Take advantage of this group. A hug from a stranger CAN make a difference
We all listen and we all vent here, its your safe place dear. 💜🤗💜🤗
I go to a womens group at my psychiatric clinic. A few of the women in the group that suffer from anxiety, depression and bipolar also have fibromyalgia. Since the group meets weekdays during the morning, its a time when im at my best. Once all my longtime friends get off work im ready for bed. Ive made great friends in the group, they can relate and i can relate to them. We all share ideas and offer things that have helped. Its actually something i look forward to. I definitely dont look forward to my regular dr appts.
