Dark day

Today has been a dark day. I'm struggling with the stress of finishing uni (2 eeeks to go). I know I have accomplished loads over the last three years and the light at the end of the tunnel is so close, but I just cannot see beyond that. I know the stress will be making my fibro symptoms worse but I am scared of a future with fibromyalgia and I'm so exhausted, I kinda don't want to exist for a bit. I do not mean that I want to die, because I don't, I just really need a break and feel a bit hopeless. Thanks for reading my rant in advance!

Hi banana,

I do feel the stress has excasabated the fibro which has now agrivated your mood. You have had a stressfull time and now if you can you do need to try and have some time out to relax. You have done great ! :-D and try to focus on your achievments :-D I may not be of help but I always live by the day now. I cannot worry about the days and weeks ahead. I focus on each day. You cannot predict how things will pan out and therefore still head for your ambitions. Dont let this take over. Alot of people with fibro still manage a career. :welldone:

Hi Banana

It's rotten ( understatement) when u have one of those days. Your thoughts can run away with you. I think your right, the stress of your exams will be causing it.
You will do just fine - do your best. That's all any of us can do.
It's quite normal to have down days. I have them too. I allow myself to acknowledge these feelings and thoughts - but just for a little while.
Brush yourself down - today is a new day.

Much Love
Lindy x

Thanks for the encouragement :) I am just so exhausted. The end is so close, I'll crawl to the finish line if I have to!
