    Shine Bright Like a Diamond

    #ChronicFatigue #Fatigue #fibromyalgiafatigue #exhaustion

    So on a personal note we flew high accomplished many things sent love out in many directions only to land on the couch and that’s IT. #crash #Drained #nap

    What IT all means is while we feel like we are getting better trying to do the things we use to do or remembering things that we could have done before diagnosis. We find ourselves in the cycle of #Updays #Downdays .

    This is incredibly frustrating and irritating to say the least. How does one do all the things one is supposed to do when they don’t have enough #Energy and suffer from #ChronicIlless ?

    Like seriously we have to be able to get through a week or two without being completely #overwhelmed .

    Ok like we have taken on some extra #Stress #Work #MentalHealth and sure some #Caregiving . But common like surly we can still get things done. #DoEverything right?…

    Wrong !!!

    This is the reminder that we are in this situation because you didn’t look after yourself #rest #Health #Breakes #timeOff #timeout .

    That’s right super hero you’re going to have to passé a bit better. Not everyday! Not every hour! Not every minute!

    So we are sorry! Please take time to say you are sorry for not looking after You!

    See while you would love to help and save the world… You forgot!

    You have to save you!

    IT is true and the year is ✨2022 IT is true.

    Please 🙏 be kind to you.

    Please 🙏 look after you.

    Please 🙏 take time for you.

    There is only one ☝️ you.

    Someone out there needs this so this is for U


    Negativity is draining #Stress #Workplace #Depression #chronic #Caregiver #Drained

    I’m having a really hard time at work now. I sort of need work to be an escape from the rest of the craziness in my life. I’m at this job 10 months so I don’t have the luxury of tons of seniority. Some ppl left and some new ppl joined and such an air of NEGATIVITY and malaise has descended. I find it so hard to stay upbeat (not easy anyway) and provide appropriate patient care. Every job has positives and negatives please .
    Anyway thanks for listening. Any ideas validation or helpful comments would be appreciated #chronic #Caregiver #HealthCare #negativity #Drained #miserable #watercooler #Workplace


    Feeling very tired, and drained

    Today I feels so tired and drained from working all the time it’s as if I don’t have time to breathe because my job is so stressful and demanding. #Drained #Feeling low #aching #depressed


    why was I born in this country?

    I have no where else to share this without endangering my life, I was born in one of the most sexist, homophobic and close-minded country you could ever think of! all I want is to wake up, wear what I want and go out and meet NORMAL people without being scared for my life all of the time.
    my mom underestimates my struggles a LOT and calls me dramatic, gloomy and delusional whenever I try to open up about it, I'm forced to cover up from head to toe, I can't remember how it felt the last time my hair felt the breeze more than 18 years ago, I'm tired.. I just graduated med school, I'm 25 and honestly can't take this any longer.
    I want to fall in love but men here are extremely sexist so I don't want none of them, I just graduated so I don't have any money to move out of the country and live whatever is left of my youth, my family is wealthy but they would never support me on this.. I feel like I can't take it more, I can't shake off the idea that I was never meant to live my life this lifetime and that it's maybe the best to just give up and hope for a "next life" instead.. there are no therapists to talk to about my suicidal thoughts because they would literally put my life in danger if they know that I'm tired of this life because of this country's religion and the people in it.

    I just felt like venting because I'm at my lowest these days.

    Anyone know how to deal w your parents divorcing? I’m an adult child and it’s tough on me especially seeing it be so tough on my dad. Any advice or stories are appreciated. #Drained #exhausted #MentalHealth


    I just wanna be okay #Depression #Anxiety #AnxietyAttack #Drained #tired

    I’m so so SO tired. It’s not tired as in I need a nap it’s tired as in I’m fed up of life. The amount of times a day I wanna hurt myself or attempt again is actually so draining and difficult. The help I’m getting isn’t helping me and I’m a danger to myself but I feel like no one will care unless I end up in the goddamn hospital. Then they will have to care because I could’ve died. I really hate feeling like this and I feel like it’s not getting better. My meds aren’t working and no one’s listening. I feel empty and numb and then I feel everything at once. My body and head are so numb it’s hard to even think or move. Death seems my only option but it’s not that I wanna die, it’s that I wanna end the suffering and the constant and painful stuff I go through. It’s not gonna get better and I’ve tried so much. I need a miracle it seems like to get better. I feel horrible 24/7 and I don’t know how to stop it. I don’t want the only person I love to leave me because I’m bringing them down with me because I’m in pain. Im so sensitive to everything and cry about everything until my eyes feel like they’re bleeding and I physically can’t get any more tears out or I can’t breathe. I wish someone would understand and get how dreadful I’m feeling. I can’t even bathe without having a breakdown. I hate school, I hate my dad, I hate my “friends”, I hate myself the most. I’m at this point where I just don’t care anymore. I’ve thought about paying someone to just beat me up so I can feel something. But if I did get beat up I’d have to deal with people asking me questions and then the worried mother saying “who did this to you?” When I was at my dads last weekend I faked being happy. The only time I didn’t smile in that f***ing house was when I was alone. I was so so tired when I got back. Everything just came down on me like the heaviest rain you’ve ever felt. Everything just happened at once. I hate my life and I’m not just saying that to get pity or people saying “you don’t hate your life, it’ll get better”. I say that because I really do. I hate it. I’ve considered dr*gs too. Maybe they will help me cope. I don’t know anymore. I’m just in unbearable and unbelievably uncomfortable pain, all the time. I’m crying and screaming and begging on my knees for help. I hate this feeling. I hate my life.


    Firing my therapist finally ☀️

    My therapist sent me resources for therapist who deal with trauma. And I literally was like wtf am I paying you 100+ every week? For you to tell me to fill out a self care plan and breathe? Cause we have YET to talk about my trauma when I literally told him very first session. I’m finally firing him. Cheers to that. But now I’m so out of energy it will be a long time before I decide therapy again. and it’s so upsetting cause it took so much to even take this step.

    Not gonna lie…

    Not gonna lie, but I’ve felt pretty exhausted for the past few months. I developed Muscular Dysphonia and my fiancé got a diagnosis of stage 2 Thyroid Cancer. So, we’ve been bouncing around from doctor to doctor. Sometimes not even being able to get ahold of doctors. It’s been exhausting. No amount of sleep will help. We have both settled into a depression that we can’t seem to pull out of. We have our good days, but then we just fall right back down our respective rabbit holes. It seems like I can’t get a grip. There isn’t a ladder that can reach down far enough to pull me out of this. I feel stuck, and work just keeps trying to pile more onto my already cracking china plate. Words of encouragement are nice, but I feel like they just bounce right off of me. I can’t go to therapy because I can’t talk due to the dysphonia. I’ve waited two weeks to hear from a speech therapist. Two phone calls, six transfers, a voicemail, and one call back later; I finally have an appointment…in two weeks…It just seems like life is like. “Oh, that doesn’t seem like enough. Let’s throw another curve ball at her!” And it does. And my china plate cracks a bit more. #Depression #exhausted #Drained #Unmotivated

    I sincerely want to have meaningful conversations with people--- but I am always exhausted after. Literally drained.
