Constructive Ways of Dealing with Feelings of Hopelessness

When I found out I had Fibromyalgia it was a bittersweet moment because I was happy to finally have a diagnosis, but after everything I read about it I knew it was going to be a lifelong fight to survive.  We all know that Fibromyalgia itself is not life-threatning…well they say this even though they don’t know exactly what causes it yet…but it’s a chronic pain illness that makes you want to die and some of our fellow Fibromites have already given up the fight.

We all have those days where we just want to give up and stop living. I know that at least once every 2 months I get really depressed and I just can’t imagine going on another day with this illness.  Every time it passes and I’m good to go again, but at that moment I want to die and it’s a scary and lonely place to be in.  I know that many of us, if not all of us go through this so how do you cope with it?  Do you have a constructive way of dealing with your feelings when you feel hopeless?  What helps you to bounce back when it all becomes too much to deal with?
