So I've not been very active here lately. Been seeing a lot of newbies and wanted you all to get the full benefit of this wonderful group.
I've been struggling with a lot of stugge latelym pain levels have been go constantly higher for months. I'm feeling as if there is no point to be around. I'm not saying that is actually do anything to myself but if something did I'd be ok with that. When I think of fighting I think of winners and losers. And when I look ahead at my fight all I see is loss . So where is my win? I dont mind struggle but at some point there has to be a lull or relief. A human can only take so much pain and loss.
I see a counselor every few weeks and I want to talk to her about this but I'm afraid she will lock me up.
Please I hope I'm not alone here. I dont mean to distrsct from anyone else's problem. Just needed to get these words out.

Hang in there! We all have felt at a real low point! Our pain can really mess with us! Just try going from moment to moment and then from hour to hour! And so on! Don't allow yourself to be overwhelmed with the what if's!

I appriacte all the. Coments itd hard to have to deal with the same things every Day all day and only to experience increased pain and less money to deal with it. I get tired of hearing and saying the same things. I try to do Things proactively and things to help me get through only to not see the proper results. Drs tell me to just do my best and to take things day by day but they dont walk in my skin. Nor do they offer any services for free which would be so helpful. I feel lost and like I'm spinning my wheels

Aug 14, 2017 6:51 PM

That must be really hard. Please know I'm thinking of you if you ever want to chat pm me 💕

I have Fibromyalgia and my pain has become a daily thing. Some days are better than others, But those days are few and far between. I sometimes wish someone would snap my legs off like you do a Barbie doll and other days I hurt so bad I understand why people want to give up. I am lucky I have a good support team aka my family , But I still have those days when I'm hurting and meds don't help and I just want it to stop. Please know your not alone in this and your not crazy, Just pain can make you feel like you fight and fight and sometimes it seems your winning but then you have those days you can't see anything but pain in your future. I will keep you in my prayers and hopefully someone will find a cure for the pain we suffer with.

I understand where you're coming from. I think when anyone who has such a huge battle to face as we all do here, that thought is bound to cross your mind at some point. Sometimes things can just seem so hopeless. I promise you that things get better eventually. It can't always rain, the sun has to appear. I think you should talk to your counselor. She is there to help you and I don't think she would lock you up unless you were an increased immediate threat to yourself. Maybe she has some ideas that can help. Don't ever feel shy, you can vent here as much as you need to. I will send thoughts and prayers for you.
