Hi, I was wondering what other people's experiences are of this. I'm having a crappy day today and yesterday was bad too.
I suffer with anxiety, depression and fibromyalgia (so pain and fatigue are a big part of my life). But I've found that I have days (like today) where I have splitting headaches, feels like my brain is really foggy and want to shake my head to clear it but can't, my mood is low, and I don't feel like I'm part of the world. Not derealization (I've had that) but just 'out of it'. I detest feeling like this, and I don't know what causes it. It just hits me out of knowwhere. I was out shopping/having coffee with my Mum on Thursday and it was good, but I wouldn't have been able to go on my own that day. Friday my Dad came down and we walked to the shops near me to get a few things but I would have been too 'insecure' (?) to go on my own that day. Saturday I knew I had to take the dog out as she'd only been in garden for a short play Friday while my Dad was here, but I couldn't face going to the beach and didn't want to interact with anyone, so walked up to my mums for a bit (but that wasn't much of a walk for her!). Today is Sunday and I'm not washed or dressed. It's been so sunny outside and if I didn't have a shared garden with downstairs I would have sat out with the dog, but I haven't left the flat. (I should say I have puppy pads still as she isn't very old). I've felt trapped by my own head today. At some points it's felt like my brain was pressing against my skull, and I've wanted to scream. (other times, not today though, it feel like the front of my brain is shrinking away from my skull!)
I also have days where I can stride down the beach and talk to other dog owners, and have a good time!!
I just wondered if anyone else goes through something similar??
I'd appreciated any input.
