Hi my name is thea, this site was recommended to me by a friend. I am not officially diagnosed yet, but close, I definitely have fibro. I am not coping well at all. Each day is getting worse I also have anxiety and depression and can barely cope with that.i am up several hours a night with restless legs and pain. Today has become too much I can't stop crying and depression is setting in. Please someone tell me how to cope with fm and depression I am at my wits end. Thank you x

Hi Thea,

Sorry that you got missed, but I think other topics bumped you down a little...so I want to say Welcome to the forum.

The pain causes the depression, and when you are depressed the pain seems worse. FM is a condition that relies on each of us to make sure our doctor understands where we are on our journey. We have to be pro-active in our care and get the right combination of medications, the right level of activity, and the right amount of support.

This forum is a great place to talk. It is the only avenue I have right now and I use it to the max, even if it is just reading other peoples posts to see what they have done to improve their lives.

Let us know when the diagnosis comes through, tell us what bothers you, look on the boards to see what others have said, and take a little comfort in knowing that we are all in this fight together. Each day we face our own demons and muscle up the energy to fight them, or eat cheesecake...sometimes that is all you can do.

I have now been diagnosed with fm, today the leg pain lack of sleep and energy are really getting to me. Does anyone know of a medication for sleep that is not addictive. I have not slept the whole night in months and I am up several times every night, this is really making me low in mood. Can't take anti histamine by the way .
