I feel completely and utterly defeated..I don't know how to help myself anymore... I'm in pain every single day from the time I wake up to when I go to bed..none of my doctors are being helpful my neurologist is making things worse for me.. I'm getting sicker and loosing more and more weight.. I cry everyday multiple times a day and I hang on for my husband who I love more than life itself but I'm exhausted I'm so scared of my own body and I dread waking up in the morning not knowing how I'll feel.. every day is a bad day for me.. My family takes their stress and frustration out on me verbally because I never seem to do anything which is true at this point I'm always lacking.. Since I've gotten sick All my friends pulled away from me, I can't drive anymore I can't hold a job because of my illness so me and my husband are so poor we can barely afford a pot to piss in.. I miss my life before Chronic illness so much I felt less like a waste... I have nothing to offer anymore.. I'm nothing..

      @darkstarrynight I definitely agree but I'd like to know more about the mind to body connections you're talking about/ gen

      I'm literally in the same boat in a sense all I do is worry on top of worry I've literally went from being 215 to 198 in probably less than a week somedays I can barely move let alone wake up but the best you can do is take it step by step like acknowledge what's bothering you and be like ok that's there but I'm not going to let it bring me down and as for the weight loss I've found that protein shakes really help with it like ensure and meal supplement drinks for when you just dont feel like eating solids they help alot

        @Weezy I appreciate that so much I used to drink meal replacement drinks but stopped a while ago I'm probably going to look into getting those again if we can afford it still.. your kind words mean alot and I'm feeling more stable today than when I posted this thank goodness I have bipolar aswell so I definitely think that's a huge factor for when I'm overwhelmed.

      Hello, I know this might seem strange, but I think you might be absorbing the stress. There's a lot of mind to body connections with illnesses.
