Does anyone feel angry

Posted , 9 users are following.

Hi

I've noticed every day I wake up and feel angry, I guess it's just being tired of being sick worrying so much. Do any of you just feel angry? Feel like your life is not your own anymore? Just feel irritated angry all the time. Do you ever do is cry?

    Yes. You're not alone and your frustration is valid.

    Gentle hugs Patty 💕

      HI Christina

      I hope the meds do help.  Thank you so much for the hugs.  I think driving to work this morning it has finally hit me, I have what is most likely a chronic illness.  The one thing I've feared all my life. I know there are stages to all this.  I think talking about this over the weekend with my son inlaw who has been so helpful because of his medical background and helping me to understand this is MAV, but  think I realized that this will probably never go away and I feel like its much like a greiving process.  The limitations it places on me and  its taken away who i was, I feel lost.  I suppose most of us feel this and I'm just realizing it.

      Hugs to you as well and i hope you feel better.

    Very sad to hear this patty 818.  Dizziness is very debilitating and sometimes I am tearful and sometimes angy.  I think both are the result of feeling frustrated because the dizziness takes away alot of choice and also anger and depression are two sides of the same coin.  Hope you find professional help soon.

      Hi Brenda

      I've been looking for someone I can talk to, I'm limited on money but i hope I can get so help.  You are right this takes a lot away from us, life just isn't the  same.  I used to be happy and easy going, now I'm filled with hurt, anger and so many other emotions.

      Hi Sukey

      I'm sorry you feel this way as well.  Its hard realizing life may never be the way it was.  Looking at the fear and worry of each day and what it will bring.  Its definitly a loss of sorts.  

      Hugs to you

    I did my first of 4 tympanic steroid injections yesterday. I have lost 85% of my hearing on the left which also zapped all balance function but I woke up this morning feeling slightly more stable than in a solid 3 weeks. The oral steroids might be helping too but they are hell on the emotions.

    Good Morning Patty

    Yes I do get angry especially when I have things to do and can't do them because it takes to much energy or because of the dizziness.

    And It is because I am so tired of feeling this way.

    I do go to counseling and it does help.

    I am trying to work on staying positive and thinking this has to be temporary.

    Feel Better And Have A Great Day. 🌻🌞🌻🌞

      Good Morning Angie

      I try to look for the silver lining and pray this is temporary, but I guess after days of feeling bad it just gets to me.  As i suppose it does all of us.

      I hope to find some help, so I can at least get a handle on my thoughts and worries.

      It all does get very tiring and can take a lot of us.  Thanks for listening.

      Hugs and you have a good day as well razz

      It is really good to talk about it because I know for me when I sit still I start to over think every little thing which make me feel worse. I get really angry when I can't remember the little things or I start one thing but don't finish it. For me I do find that staying busy keeps me from thinking and stressing out.

    Yes I do get angry as I have to deal with not only this but three other autoimmune illnesses as well, but I found anger made me even more stressed it's more frustration now but trying to keep calm is hard isn't it when you want to get up and find your head swimming an nausea n fatigue I had to give up work too which dosent help your self esteem as I wanted to work for as long as I possibly could really, it's like a beareavement of your old life but hopefully we can all feel better soon I wish everyone a good recovery

      HI Royalty

      I think you hit it on the head, its a beareavement, thats is exactly what

      I thought this morning driving to work and tears rolling down my face. I never had thought of it like this before, but it is a loss of a life I had. Yes I do have good days and I make myself push forward, but then there are days like today and this morning it just really came to life for me.  Sickness and disease have always worried me, I guess just wondering what may happen.  

      I also have hypothyroid disorder along with MAV now and health anxiety and general anxiety.  I think if I didn't have dizziness in some form everyday,it would be easier.  I don't worry about the thyroid so much and it will be a part of my life always, but this dizziness has gripped me.  

      Thanks for the reply.

      Oh my, you have alot going on.  I'm so sorry about your father, I know how hard it is to loose a parent.  The stress for you must have been very high. 

      Its funny because with hypothyroidism there are symptoms the same as these dizzy symptoms, so it can get a bit overlapping in that manner.  

      There are a lot of very kind people on this board and very supportive, I'm so thankful for all of you. 

      Please if you need to vent or just chat please let me know.  I hope you feel well very soon.  thank you so much

      Thankyou patti I lost my mum few years before dad do you know what though despite me asking my dr to test my thyroid in case it was out of sync she said no we don't have to test that that's ok I must admit I thought well how do you know it is when it's not been tested I take 50 micrograms levothroxine which is quite low I think I've had two goitres luckily nothing to worry about there

      There is no way to know if the thyroid is out without testing it, so I wonder how your doc knew that.  I know when started to go in 1998 I was a wreck, they kept saying i had fibormyalgia and anxiety, it took 2 years of testing before the right doc actually looked at my symptoms list which had 100 symptoms on it, and it was a rheumatologist i went to see because of the fibro, he took one look at the list and said Honey you don't have fibro you have a thyroid condition, I said a WHAT, he saId let me test it and heres a prescription, I'll call you tomorrow and if its a go you will start taking a pill a day and i'll give you a referal to endocrinologist, and sure enough he was right,  But I had been to 8 doctors and the ER a few times and not one doc had checked this.  

      I really pray this MAV does go awy, if not its best for me to learn how to deal with it, without stressing so much and letting the anger take over.

      I was diagnosed approx 8 years ago when in meno, my mum also had it I was started on lowest dose unless there is one lower than 50 micrograms. Two years is long time to wait to get accurate diagnosis isn't it it took drs many months to diagnose me with transverse myelitis as they first thought ms despite having lumbar puncture several mr is an cat scans
