Patient discussion about cope

Q. Any tips for coping with fibromyalgia?

A. I agree with the fact getting a better understanding helps but for me coping is finding support, someone you can talk to that is understanding. Accepting the fact you have can't do all the things you use to in the same way. REST...nap durning the day if possible so many people say this interfers with your sleep at night BUT for 2 years I wouldn't lie down and rest b/c I slept so poorly at night latey I have found resting if even 30 minutes helps me make it through my day. My medications help so talk to your doctor and I also if I can't nap durning the day sit and read to give my body a break b/c somedays it is so hard to move! 20 minute walks, warm baths, and herbal tea to help me relax and try to get as much sleep as possible at night. Hope this helps and Good Luck!

Q. How have people coped with dealing with depression? I have bi-polar II mixed disorder and I have been a candidate for no medication. I haven't taken medication for the last 3 years. I've recently been struggling with alleviating my depression.

A. The book is called An Unquiet Mind.
Nicholas, talk to your friends and family, tell them what goes on in your head during episodes, tell them what your journey has been like with this illness. Give them an opportunity to ask questions, teach them what your triggers are. Teach them what you want them to do when you are experiencing a mania or a depression. You are your own best tool when teaching the ones you love about this illness.
Good luck, I am sure if you open up and talk to them about it they will listen and learn, you will make them better people for it.
