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!

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.

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.

In contrast to earlier studies showing that women and men cope with stress differently through mechanisms such as cognitive complexity, self-efficacy, interactional goal orientation, expressivity-instrumentality, and gender role orientation (Davis, Burleson, & Kruszewski, 2011; Brougham, Zail, Mendoza, & Miller, 2009; Feng & Xiu, 2016), the findings of this study indicate that the role of these mechanisms may be modified by an individual's secure attachment level.
