Does anyone else think that maybe Fibromyalgia could be caused or at least exacerbated by stress / depression?
I never really thought it could, or was, but I’ve noticed I feel worse when things are not going right.
Like today, my daughters birthday, and I am of course skint. Esa is a piffling amount, despite working 34 years, the amount is universally the same regardless of how much you have paid into the system and believe me, the government don’t want you to have even that 😦
So I had to order a present from Groupon, you guessed it, it never arrived, so I feel terrible.
Then her dad whom I was married to for 11 years, together for 19 years, but now have been divorced for 10 years, rocks up with presents and money and announces he is taking everyone out for dinner. (Not me -I’ve always been a ghost, since the divorce).
So I’ve sat here, alone again on yet another daughters birthday, while they are all out. It has happened 3 times a year for the last 2-3 years. Its soul destroying. So I’m stressed and lonely.
I am sure this makes things worse.
When I was working and had money and could enjoy nights out and spend time with my kids, I wasn’t so fed up and sickly.
Tbh I suppose it’s chicken and egg.
Tbh I suppose I’m just fed up.
