Dear fellow sufferers!
I would love us to share some knowledge that has helped you psychologically.
I have been suffering with herniated discs for the last 4 months...
I am unable to work...
And my question is.. How do you stay away from despair and depression?
I read multiple studies about link between depression and back pain. And I do not want to underestimate it...
I do feel mildly depressed time to time. For example when there is a flare up.
So many negative emotions...
Fear (of chairs, prolonged sitting or standing or walking, of my future and health)
Anger (that I am in pain and can not function as before)
Guilt (that I made it worse, I am not strong enough...)
Sadness (no meaning of my life)
Unceratinity about how I will feel.
Sometimes I can go few weeks without crying and then I cry few days in a row.
I went to see psychologist and the sessions did help me. But I guess I need more and go again?
Chronic back pain is enough I dont want to add depression.
Is there any advice?
How to accept the pain and inability and still find some happiness in you r lifes?
I will be so thankful for your thoughts, ideas and experiences.
Plus I read that antidepressants some of them, actually healed the chronic pain itself? Any success story on that?
I am sending love and support to each and every one of you. I could never imagined how does it feel ...
Tak care guys.
