What a complicated and frustrating condition Fibromyalgia can be. Fibro has so much unexplained pain it is sometimes even hard for the sufferer to believe that someone can be in that much constant pain without knowing the reason why.
The mystery of Fibro is what causes so much emotional turmoil in the patients life. The unknown is hard to deal with. When you don’t know what is causing your pain, you can’t fix it which leads to frustration. There are multiple symptoms, fatigue, pain all over, muscle pain, tender points, sleep difficulties, brain fog, digestive disorders to name a few. The list seems to grow as we gain more awareness of the syndrome. When you experience this over and over, it starts to play on the soul.
This is why it is so important to have a good support system, someone who understands and believes you are experiencing this for real. This could help those who feel suicide is the only choice. You have to believe that you will get through this, that there is a way to gain your strength back and reduce some of the pain and discomfort. Don’t go it alone, we all need help, seek out the right kind. Find a support group, a friend, a family member, a therapist, an inspirational group or a church can be a place for support that will help you through the hard times. If you see someone in need, please help.
I am wondering if Fibromyalgia suicides could be linked to the used of antidepressants. Check out these videos before you decide to use antidepressants or drugs like Prozac. I just checked the ask a patient website and they are also reporting feeling suicidal thoughts from Cymbalta. See for yourself. Lyrica users are reporting brain fog and suicidical thoughts. Is the brain fog from the medications as well? Mine seem to have cleared up since I went off all drugs. My mind is clear now and I don’t feel like a walking zombie.
