Exquisite Understanding of Pain 2020
What do you think of this artwork in progress?
Fibromyalgia creates many serious losses, including loss of control over one's body, loss of friends and loss of valued activities.
People are often forced to give up their job and so lose income, companionship and challenge. And often people have to abandon dreams, thus losing the future they had envisioned for themselves. In sum, we experience the loss of the person we used to be and the person we hoped to become.
The pervasiveness of loss presents us with some of our most daunting tasks: keeping hope alive and bringing new meaning to life when much has been taken away.
Responses to Loss
Denial and Disbelief - FM means being told you have a condition for which there is no cure.
Fear and Worry
Frustration & Anger
Guilt - Living in a society that emphasizes productivity, guilt about doing less than before is common.
Sadness & Depression
Acceptance- Acceptance means letting go of your past life and also of the future as you had envisioned it. And it means saying good-bye to the person you used to be.
