Feeling sorry for myself

Postby sarahbridgewater81 » Tue Jan 21, 2014 6:32 pm

Hi All, hope your all well :-)

Last night was the worst nights sleep, went to sleep ok after taking some amitriptyline. I'm not sure how long I was asleep but i woke up to the most intense pain, muscle spasms then stiffness, i just cried with pain and felt really sorry for myself.

Slapped myself mentally, told myself to get a grip and tried to get back to sleep which eventually i did but I am really tired and physically drained today which wasn't helped by being short staffed at work and having extra work load. When I feel like this i can't cope and feel sorry for myself which is not me, i feel like FM has changed my personality slightly and i don't feel as strong as i used to.

Does anyone else feel the same and got any tips on how to aid a better nights sleep?

Hia sarah

Awwwww sending a gentle hug I too don't sleep well 3hrs roughly and that's a good nite!!! I too work and find it realli hard I'm a lone worker too so I kind of pace myself "but" still not easy! I too feel I've changed how long have u been diagnosed? Me sept 2013 I went from being me but in pain and at times hidding behind a fake smile to just AH!!!! Then when home I cannot do a thing exept line medz up + rest! I'm lucky my daughter deals with rest but I do bills etc...... She's my rock 1 thing I have to force my self to do is eat a heathy brekkie or I'd b on my knee,s by 10AM!!! And continue to take pain medz "on time"! Threw day I find I'm much more aggitated + generaly PEE.D off frustration I think as I was so used to doing house MY way + now can't same with rest of stuff too after dx I got real low felt sorri 4me + why me a lot of anger, but now I know I get up,work,medz,bed!!!!! Its not what I want but I now listen 2my body I think every 1 with fibro gets like this at times 1 thing I think denny said was u mourn the old u but damm hard to accept but when its bad I think of my fiesty mum who beat breast cancer that normaly kicks my A@@

Thanks debsmith

I've only recently come to hear of fibro and only been told by my doctor and neurologist that it is this condition just waiting to see a rhumatologist so not official as yet. I only take amitriptyline at night but like yourself i get irritated more quicker than i used to.

Thanks for replying it makes a difference to know im not alone

Take care
Sarah :hugs:

Hello Sarah,so very sorry to hear you are having such a tough time :( . I also suffer with severe pain and very poor sleep because of it :yikes: :yikes: . I do not work and have to say I really don't know how you cope in that respect.
Please try to get an appointment at the pain clinic, i find these the most helpful people to see.....so much more on the ball and understanding than GP and other clinics.
There are many drugs to try, some may work others don't, sadly I seem to have adverse side effects to many, but a lot of it is trial and error.
I wish you every success in finding a combination that lessons your symptoms.
Take care , chin up and keep smiling.
