I've been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, severe depression, generalized anxiety, sleep disorder, early onset menopause, IBS, and the list goes on and on......AHHHHHH!
I started my decline into darkness 7 years ago....going from working part time, being a fun mom and wife, and being active with friends and hobbies to becoming a reclusive, nonfunction, friendless, apathetic, sad, TV watching hermit. I now rarely leave my bed. IS THERE ANYONE WHO IS SO DEPRESSED AND FEELING GENERALLY SO FATIGUED THEY ARE ACTUALLY STAY IN BED LIKE ME ... OR I AM I JUST EXTRA LAZY? I feel like the worst wife and mom in the world. The guilt makes it all worse. I wonder if my personality is defective and I don't contain whatever is needed to "power through". AM I ALONE?
My son has Celiac Disease, nephew with Aspergers, mother has addiction and anxiety problems.
I've had all kinds of tests --- nothing. Dr.s just load me up on all kinds of meds (7 right now) and say "come back in 3 months".
Can anyone on this site give me helpful advice?
Is there anyone who has had, or knows someone with a similar experience?
