This article is with reference to Rheumatoid Arthritis but in my own opinion it could easily be applied to many other illnesses such as Fibromyalgia, Hypermobility, EDS, MS and many other Invisible Ilnesses which involve Chronic Pain.
The opening lines of this short article explain the sequence of the basics:
pain > tired > depressed
Living with arthritis can mean living with chronic pain. This pain can make you tired and depressed, and that slump can persist even on “good days” when the pain isn’t so bad.
Can you associate with this?
How do you cope, have you got a coping stategy for times of severe pain & fatigue?
