Coping with the Pain of Fibromyalgia

Find support: Confide in family, friends, and support groups

Finally, one of the most important treatments is support. Though "simply talking" or "talk therapy" will not make your symptoms disappear, it'll help you cope with feelings of loneliness, frustration, depression, and hopelessness. 

Family and friends can provide the support that you need. But, if all else fails, you can always check in with a therapist. No, the therapist won't cure the pain. But they can give you coping mechanisms for when you don't think you can stand it another second. It also helps to discuss the "why me" feelings we all get and address the anger you feel about having Fibromyalgia

We understand. We have it too. Let's keep talking, learning, informing, and supporting each other.
