New Member, Jessica

Hi everyone. My name is Jess, I’m from Orando, and I’m new to this forum. I have Sjogrens and Fibromyalgia. I’m married to a highly insensitive and uncompassionate man, so I have zero moral support at home. I’m without insurance so I haven’t seen my Rheumatologist in about a year, therefore I am no longer on any medications. I’ve been feeling very depressed lately and I really think that the depression is caused by the constant pain. I’m hoping that this forum will help me feel less alone. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Hi Jessica! Welcome!

You mentioned depression. Inflammation can cause depression, and many people find that when the disease is being treated that the depression improves. Chronic pain and depression absolutely can go hand in hand.

Welcome, Jessica! I’m sure you will feel less alone here: we “get it”. Did you know that we have a fibro community as well?

All the best to you
