    I'm sorry to hear you are feeling down. I just wanted to let you know you are not alone. I will be remembering you in my prayers.

    Soft hugs

    If nothing is requiring your undevoted attention at the moment, take a nice bubble bath with candles and calming music and sit in the warm water and vegitate for awhile.
    Sometimes I find it calms the muscles down a bit and I feel a little better than before I got in the warm water.
    Just a suggestion.
    Soft hugs. Hope the day goes better.

    We all get this way. To me, the positive attitude is tough, because at heart I think I'm more of a pessimist (that was true before FM, too) and it's terribly hard, I believe, to change our basic personalities. So staying positive in the face of pain & discomfort is particularly a challenge for me. Good luck to you, take care of yourself & pamper yourself, as others have said, in whatever ways you can...and don't get discouraged if you do have a really down day, the next may be better even if only a little bit. One thing I've learned is to look for those small, little bits of improvement; I know I'm not going to see big, dramatic, sweeping strides (see? there's the pessimist in me again...) but I may see small, incremental moves forward.

    Hope you feel better in body & mind, Michell!

    Gotta keep putting one foot in front of the other and refuse to give in. I get down too, but am stubborn. I work a gruelling 8 day week in sales and am beat before I start, but will not give in! Having a good sense of humor helps. I am alone in this battle, so I know how down you can get. Let me know how things are going and if I can be of any help. Keep smiling! Sometimes it is the only therapy that helps get me thru the rough bouts.

    I sure understand a bit about depression Michell. It is normal for those of us with chronic painful illnesses to have depression. If we didn't have it that would be the time to worry, Sweetie. Please just hang in there. Come to the board. Go to a depression board....talk it out. It really does help to pour out your feelings. Take that from someone who knows. :) If you feel like it is getting the best of you-----PLEASE go for professional help. I mean at least go to doc for Antipressants. There is NO shame in having and treating depression. THe shame comes in having depression and NOT treating it.
    sincere hugs, Kat

    Give up the exercise for a while! It really makes me worse and may be too much physical stress for you. Lots of new research against exercise. Go sleep, watch the tube, eat....veg out and spoil yourself. Don't do what you're supposed to do...do what feels good! Lord knows we have too few "feelgood" moments! Roxi

    I'll read them all again. How special to come and read such sweet things. I needed that so bad. It's so nice to know you all really care and understand. Thanks for the encouragement and advise. I hope you all are blessed.

    Read your bio. Glad to hear you have the Lord in your life. The blessed hope is great! Am continuing to pray that the God of all comfort will give you the strength to do all that He's got for you. The deepest people I know have gone through trials and suffering. I don't understand why that is the way it is, and I'm not particularly wanting to sign up for the class. I'll pray that you will have joy in spite of the pain and enjoy His gifts of your daughter and husband to the fullest. "The eye of the Lord goes to and fro throughout the whole earth that He may strongly uphold those whose hearts are completely His."
    II Chron 16:9 Psalm 33:13-22

    What a special reply. I really soaked it up. What a blessing to have others who don't even know you genuinely care and I appreciate any prayers. Thank you so much. May you be blessed also.
