Dear Vizzallygirl, it is no doubt difficult. I myself have been battling severe sciatica for a few years and not be able to sit longer than 10 min. However, what has helped me is seeing (online) psychologist who gas given me various cognitive strategies to deal with pain. I'm also currently studying to be a psychologist (currently teacher) and this study period completed a unit on health psychology . This has given me a wealth of knowledge . I'm living what I have studied and your posts highlight the key stages , thoughts , behaviour that one goes through when faced with an ongoing illness. Using this forum for social support is one strategy and there are many others . I believe most struggle to accept their new identity and hence try to cope using emotions . This is me. I'm what psychologists call a neurotic and this means I'm biased to perceiving the world or events in a negative manner and i use maladaptive strategies . So together with psychology and my own learning I have implemented various strategies eg using this app, deep breathing etc. what each of us needs to do is use available resources , learn new strategies to enable us to have some quality of life rather than allowing our pain consume us.
I can understand, I've had a couple of suicide attempts when things were overwhelming. But after, every time I've had a moment when I was happy I failed, even though they were real, sincere attempts. Hang in there... choose life, even if it's a difficult one. ♡♡ you can do this.
