  • I think it is only natural for those suffering from chronic pain to be depressed from time to time. I often will go a few days not wanting to talk to anyone and haveing nothing positive to think about as far as my future goes.

    I think this is ok as long as it does not last and you are aware of it and trying to do something about it. Once it goes past just a few days I think it is important to force yourseld to talk about it, as you are doing with this post, and try to turn your thoughts around. This may be something that needs meds to give you a little help being positive or maybe getting started with a therapist.

    No matter how bad you have it, there is someone worse off that has a positive attitude. I dont know how these people do it, but I think trying your best to figure out your solution is importantant.
  • often goes hand in hand with chronic pain.
  • Depression does go hand in hand with chronic pain. I know I
    dread gettting up every day because I know the pain is going to be there. Having said that, I do get up and march on. I am lucky that I am self employed and I can lie down when I need to at work. If I were working for someone I would be on full disability.
    I am seeing a pschyiatrist to help me deal with the pain and I think it does help talking with him. He gives me hope that we can beat this with time.

    Hang in there....
  • just the way it is I guess, only thing that helps me is high grade marijuana.
