I love Stephan Fry! And I love your blog! I just discovered it today, during a really bad time. I, too, have fibromyalgia and depression. I have had depression my whole life, fibro about 4 years, and it’s definitely getting worse. I decided to tackle my depression head on last year, really for the first time in my life, after a local and much loved weatherman killed himself after a lifelong struggle with depression. I have been asked this question too many times, and while I know people mean well and they are just trying to understand, I find it’s like asking why a hemophiliac has hemophilia. It just is. While the depression is getting better, my pain and random symptoms with fibro are getting worse. It’s so nice to know I’m not alone, but it sucks that others are in pain.
Take care, and here’s to more good days than bad!
Thanks so much for your very very encouraging comment. It really does help me to carry on, knowing that others get encouraged by my work.
Sharing our stories and connecting with eachother really does make a great difference in tackling depression and fibromyalgia as it does so many other things.
Thanks so much for your kind words. You’ve left me with a smile tonight:) keep fighting, and let me know if you have any questions about things you can do to improve aspects of your fibromyalgia. There’s some stuff mentioned on here but happy to answer specifically if you’ve not come across it yet:) Cheers my friend x
