I can't get thru this

mem6197

The fibro is so bad right now it isn't funny. I know all the stress I'm under isn't helping and just making things worse. But it's just unavoidable at this point. The fire, the heater dying in the RV, the serious money issues and all the day to day things are just too much. I had a major breakdown a little while ago and even called my therapist to talk for a while. We made an appointment for next week - thankfully. My plate is just too full right now and I don't know how to get thru it all.

I hate to keep going on about all of this but it's just becoming unbearable. My knees are the worst, it's so hard to get up from sitting. I'm not sleeping all that well even with the sleep med and I'm not eating that much either.

Oh, I hate this.

I agree with lisa. You will get thru this.

Come here anytime and let your feelings out.

I consider MDJ my safe place.

I can laugh or cry and share it here.

You are in my prayers dear.

Gentle hugs

Thank you both so much for the support, I sure need it right now. I've been crying a lot lately and it's so nice to talk to others who understand. I love MDJ!!!

Wen,

It is okay to cry as much as you want to. I sometimes do that for most of a week. We just have to get it out of our system. I don't know if you believe in God, but He created us with tear glands for a reason so we might as well use them. They are one thing that is still working.

Hugs,

Just think we could like him!!!!!!!!!! LOL

Wen, have you tried an antidepressant like Cymbalta or Celexa? I've always said that attitude is everything and when things get tough, you loose it to tears. I used to cry all the time in pain and frustration but haven't cried once since taking Cymbalta then switching to Celexa. It really does make a difference in how I cope with things.

Hey, look at it this way. Things could be worse, you could be a pole dancing crak adicted single mother of five kids all from differant dads in New Jersey who is also doing fluffy porn on the side. At least you're not that woman. If you were you'd also likely have dated me at one point and THAT would be the worst part of all!

Lockman you are too funny!!!! Glad to "meet" you.

Thanks Debbie, I've crying a lot, the tears just start and I can't seem to stop them. But it does help release the tension some.

MsPati and Broken, yes I am on an anti-depressant along with other things for several other medical and psych issues.

We have had an extremely difficult year. In May our house burned down and we lost everything. The insurance has denied paying the claim so we are doing it all on our own. We are currently in the demolition phase and won't be able to start rebuilding until the spring. We have been living in an RV on the property and now the furnace has died. If it wasn't for bad luck we wouldn't have any luck at all. We are so strapped for money we barely have enough to eat. That's it in a nutshell.

Thanks all for letting me vent.

Wen,

I don't think we have met. Welcome, and I must say, you sure are going through an awful lot and have been for a long time. I think crying is a natural thing and in this instance, certainly understandable.

Do you have any family that would be willing to take you in and let you stay with them in a larger home rather than an RV. I don't know how many people you have in your family, but certainly you would be more comfortable with more space. Also, do you have any income coming in?? I would look into food stamps or would definitely go to a food pantry to get food. Please don't be too proud. It is people like you that really need it and should be able to get help.

I hope things start to turn around for you soon. I cannot even imagine going through what you are going through, and wouldn't pretend to understand.

Do you mind me asking why the insurance is refusing to pain your claim. That is so unfair!! I would certainly be fighting that one. Maybe you can find a lawyer that does not charge you anything unless you win the case, or maybe you could have a fund raiser or a friend could start planning one for you. Again, I hope all works out for you and very soon!!

If you would like to PM me, please feel free to do so. My thoughts and prayers will be with you.

Hugs~

Christine
