I have had pain and anxiety and depression and fear for 25 years

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hello I have had so many problems for the last 25 years. It started when I sprained my back when my daughter was two years old. I have always been a dependent insecure person in many ways. I thought i was fine with being a Mom and a wife. But I think my insecurity started to show up more right before I sprained my back and think I was tight to begin with and that is why the injury came about more severe. Well this sent me into a tailspin of fear and worry and anxiety. Like who was going to take care of my daughter in case I didn't get better? Who was going to clean the house. Even though I am married my husband is a workacholic. I got every illness from that point on and more injuries from dr's trying to help me. Well to make a long story a little shorter. I have struggled all these years with fear, fibromyaligia and many pulls and haven't been ABLE TO USE my body it preventing me from really having my strength and shut me down almost all together. I am still struggling going to dr's and counselors and trying to get well. I also have a strong faith in God. I wanted to see if anyone had anything similiar to this. I could write a book to you but currently my back and neck are really off. I will share more when i can. Please tell me if this has happened to anyone else and how they got through it. thank-you so very much. Joan

      Thank-you very much hanky. I pray that you get relief from your chronic pain and anxiety too. I know I always worry about my husband working so hard and having to take care of me at times. I just keep praying and keep believing but it's nice to share with other's and listen and help each other. God Bless you . Joan
