Everyone who ever suffered or has been suffering from any prolonged or chronic illness knows how difficult it is to maintain a hopeful and positive attitude while we are subjected to pain, are more dependent on others in coping with our daily issues, and trying to manage our lives and relationships.
Some of our emotional issues are sometimes so difficult that we prefer not to know about them.
In a meantime we know that a huge part of our recovery depends on our good spirits.
 
 
Talking would be good - but after a while we feel embarassed to talk about the same problems with even most supportive others.
 
Sometimes we do not want to worry them with our negative attitude.
Sometimes we just feel that they might reject us or withdraw from relationships exhausted with our constant need for support.

Fibromylagiais a set of symptoms related to the impared functioning of musculoskeletal system. The exact cause of the syndrome is still unknown. Fibromyalgia syndrome casues chronic muscle, tendons, and ligaments pain. Fibromyalgia feels like our whole body is in pain and that all our muscles, tendons and ligaments are streched and stiff. Chronic pains related to fibromyalgia leads to chronic fatigue, depressed mood, anxiety, sleep difficulties and low tolerance of stress. However, because we know that depression, anxiety, mental exhaustion and sleep difficulties also lead to chronic fatigue, which affects the functioning of nervous system, musculoskeletalsystem and circulation, it is very likely that fibromyalgia is, if not casued by them, at least greatly excerbated by mental stress and emotional discomfort.

Chronic pain, chronic fatigue and difficulties sleeping make fibromyalgia becomes an incapacitating condition, physically by impairing mobility and ability to cope with demands of everyday life, and mentally and emotionally by depriving of ability to enjoy life.

Psychotherapy appears to be necessary in treatment of fibromyalgia. The contact with an understanding psychotherapist who serves as a guide in emotional difficulties related to chronic pain seems to be necessary. A therapist can help discover and address issues that might have contributed or still could contribute to the state of uncontrollable suffering.

Group psychotherapy helps tremendously avoid isolation and in the integration of the necessary changes in our atttiutude towards ourselves and others, while offering the warmth of understanding and support.

Although we dont know exactly what causes fibromyalgia we have to consider one very likely possibility....

Maybe it is a sign of emotional suffering and the body's way of rebelling against it?

Maybe physical pain is a sign of emotional pain?

One seems to be certain: let someone helpful and caring take a look into our soul ... They say it helps....

Can I help you?...

Fibromialgia jest zespołem zaburzeń układu mięśniowo-szkieletowego. Przyczyna jest wciaz do konca nieznana. Zespol fibromilagii objawia sie przewleklym bolem miesni, ścięgien i wiazadeł. Zespol fibromialgii powoduje wrazenie, ze boli całe ciało, ze wszystkie mięśnie i sciegna sa napięte. Chroniczny stan bolu prowadzi do zmeczenia, stanow depresyjnych, niepokoju, niskiej tolerancji na stress i zaburzen snu. Poniewaz jednak wiemy, ze stany depesyjne, przewlekly niepokoj, psychiczne zmeczenie i zaburzenia snu prowadza do prewleklego fizycznego napiecia, ktore obciaza system nerwowy, miesniowy i krazenia, prawdopodobne jest, ze zespol ten jest, o ile nie spowodowany, to powaznie zaostrzony przez psychiczny stress.

Przewleky ból, chroniczne zmęczenie i zaburzenia snu i nastroju powoduja, ze fibromyalgia jest paraliżującym stanem, i fizycznie przez utrudnienie poruszania w codziennym zyciu, i psychicznie przez pozbawienie radosci zycia.

Psychoterapia wydaje sie niezbedna w terapii fibromialgii. Konieczny jest kontakt z rozumiejacym terapeuta, ktory moze sluzyc nie tylko jako przewodnik w psychicznych trudnosciach zwiazanych z chronicznym bolem, ale ktory moze pomoc odkryc i zaadresowac problemy, ktore przyczyniaja sie do niekontrolowanego stanu cierpienia.

Psychoterapia grupowa pomoze w uniknieciu odizolowania i w zintegrowaniu zmian w naszym stosunku do siebie i do innych, oferujac nam przy tym cieplo wsparcia i zrozumienia.

Choc dokladnie nie wiemy jeszcze, co powoduje fibromilagie, musimy wziac pod uwage jedna bardzo wazna mozliwosc...

Moze fibromialgia jest wyrazem psychicznego cierpienia i niezgody na nie?

Moze fizyczny bol jest wyrazem bolu psychicznego?

Wydaje sie wiec, ze jedno jest pewne: pozwolmy komus pomocnemu i troskliwemu zajrzec nam w dusze... Mowia, ze to pomaga....

Nie wahaj sie dzwonic... Daj sobie pomoc....
