not sure if this should be in "so you've had a bad day" as its only 7am but i am crying and i dont even know why!. have only been up an hour and i was sat in the garden with the cat and floods of tears just came from nowhere!!

i think it is because i am dealing with so many "little" things as well as the CFS and they are really getting to me....constant back ache that no one will do anything about, surgery on my sinus in january that does not seem to have healed, cluster headaches, acid reflux etc etc.......

and the other thing is i hate moaning abot it and bringing everyone down, so sorry!

my psychiatrist wants me back on anti deprassants but they just numb everything, i am pretty sure that whatever is wrong with me its not a prozac deficiency so i just dont want to go there.  I have already had to go back on pregabalin for my anxiety and i hate being on that, i dont want any more meds!

anyway, typing through tears is hard so will leave it there, hope you are all having a better day than me!

Hi, chill - NEVER worry about 'having a moan' here. That's what the 'having a bad day' board's for - get it off your chest! Re the sinus op, have you reported back to your surgeon? If not, perhaps you should. If you have and haven't got anywhere, maybe salt water via a neti pot might help, assuming it's just a not healing well issue. Re reflux, have you tried keeping a food diary? And have you ever had your stomach acid levels checked? - reflux is caused by LOW stomach acid as often as not.

For now though, I'm really sorry you're feeling so down.  hug. I know the hug won't help much, but it's the only thing I can think of at the moment and at least it won't do any harm!

Well it's now nearer 7 in the evening rather than 7 in the morning, Chill, so I hope that things have gone in the right direction for you as the day progressed. A ((hug)) from me too. Sometimes I know it just feels like all too much to deal with, and the things on offer don't seem like the right thing either.

Some good suggestions there from Roger. I have had years of coping with acid reflux or at least pain in the upper gut with reflux sometimes. Also was diagnosed with gastritis many years ago too. I believe in my case that my thyroid wasn't up to scratch at the time even though it was being treated with thyroxine so that and going through the menopause really exacerbated things. Years on now, and I have found that restricting certain foods helps for me. I cut out gluten about 8 or 9 years ago, and that helps, along with avoiding sugar. It will be different for us all, but on a really bad day I would eat just vegetables like carrots and potato, as it didn't happen with them. I used HCL with betaine for low acid for years, but I don't think I need that now but it is definitely a factor for many.

I have heard that cluster headaches are dreadful. Are you getting any help with them? Sorry I cannot really advise anything for them as I don't know much about it, but can understand that alone would put a dent in your mood let alone the rest.

Hi Both, i am a little better today, exhausted but not so emotional.  To get back to see the surgeon i would have to go through the whole referral process again as i was discharged, and i dont have the energy for it at the moment so will just have to put up and shut up for a while.  Too tired to type much but wanted to say thanks for your replies and i will check in again soon.

Hey, chill. For what it's worth, I think you're in a 'need loads of rest' phase as the moment, so don't worry about how quick you come back. Again for what it's worth, when I needed loads of rest, it drove me crazy thinking about the 'wasted time' etc. That was a BIG mistake. So when you need prolonged rest don't look at it as a pain in the arse, look at it as necessary but pleasant part of your healing process - wallow in it!

I'm glad you're feeling a tad better today emotionally - people often don't realise how vital getting emotionally balanced is in the journey to wellness. Never lose faith in that journey. It DOES have an end point.
