sometimes I wonder if I really am depressed or if my feelings are just a rational reaction to my life. I can't imagine anyone living every day of their life in constant pain wondering what their body is going to throw at them next and not hating their life. I have tried talking to therapists in the past but I feel like nobody understands me and it's hard not to lie and say I'm happy when it's all I'm used to doing with my family and friends.

      I felt that. Im in therapy now and trying to work through my heavy anxiety, ADHD tendencies, and my inability to get any form of decent sleep. I recently came upon the conclusion that my chronic pain can be the cause of all of that easily so the light at the end of the tunnel can definitely be hard to see at times. Id agree that seeing a specialist might help a bit.

      Maybe try finding the therapist specialized in pain management?
