I have been in such a downward spiral for many months now. I blame it on Fibro but, I suspect it is all tied together with the ADD. Which is a bummer😔
Answer is, you can stop feeling guilty, blaming yourself for behaviour which is out of your control!
Sure, there are many, many coping mechanisms available to accommodate all of our differences, but, bottom line is, you cannot cure it. You cannot rid yourself of this disability, you can only learn how to cope so you don’t hurt yourself or others.
Same goes for Fibro. Trying drugs to rid your body of the pain is frustrating, to say the least, and depressing. You become discouraged, leading to feelings of hopelessness and helplessness.
But you’re not really helpless. You can find ways to lessen the pain, cope with lack of sleep and accept your new you.
Not a “new and improved” you, just a different you. More like the gracefully aging woman/man, rather than the “desperately trying to hide their age” woman/man. Those trying to hide who they really are become the fuel for all the cruel and senseless jokes out there.
Be graceful; accept who you are, what you have become and where you are heading. Learn to love what you have instead of moaning and groaning about what you don’t have. It’s the only way.
