When I was diagnosed for the first time, I felt as amitriptyline solve my sleep problems, which would relieve me of my symptoms of fibromyalgia.
Prioritize your needs – If you have any kind of chronic debilitating condition, you must put your own needs first. Even if you’re the healthiest person on the planet, you should not leave your forgotten needs.
Stop spending time with the wrong people. – If someone adds stress to your life, stress makes you sick. Remove stress by removing that person. You may not be able to eliminate them completely, but you can choose to avoid them when possible.
Stop trying to be there for everyone. – The ability to say “No” is very low. Too often, those of us who suffer from fibromyalgia are likely to be unable to say “no”, feeling guilty when we can not say “yes”. We can not be there for everyone.
Stop lying to you. – You’re sick, admit it. You do not feel well. Someone else asks and you answer “I’m fine” but that’s not the truth. This is not the truth when you say to them and that is certainly not the truth when you say to yourself.
Stop wasting time to explain to others. – Most people do not care enough about you to care about your illness or why you can not do what you can not do. Just say “no” and move forward. Do not try to explain why you can not do that, because they are probably not listening anyway.
Stop living in the past. – Stop trying to re-achieve standards of living you had before your illness.
Stop berating you for old mistakes. – Guilt and blame are our constant friends. Stop blame you for things you have done in the past (or things that you want to have done). It’s in the past, let it go and move on. Again, focus on what you can do in the future.
