Is the depression perminant with FM?

That's not an easy one to give a definitive answer to as we're all affected so differently with that as well :facepalm: :facepalm:

To me, with the depression definitely being around since things started appearing, it certainly feels like it is permanent, even during times when things haven't been so dark and heavy :swear1: :swear1: :swear1:

For others tho, it does get better with time, and depending on the cause of their depression. If it's a temporary matter/event that has occurred, such as a loss of job or relationship breakdown, altho very traumatic and upsetting in their own right, people can find that as they can work their way thru it, which suggests it may not be permanent.

I think this another of those subjects that there isn't a definitive answer too. The best we can do is find our way thru our own darkness and build on any spark of brightness so we can live as well as we can with these problems.

I agree with Fluppy no-one could ever say whether something like depression is permanent, especially when its in conjunction with a condition such as fibro, any chronic pain condition is bound to have a psychological effect to some degree.

I had depression before fibro but its well controlled until things start to flare etc. bit like most of us I suppose :dunno: :dunno:
