    I think I'm just too tired to keep going. I have so much pain psychological and physical. I read other posts and can relate so strongly to the unbearable pain and fatigue. I am of absolutely no use to anyone. What is the point? If you take away the emotion you wouldn't want someone in so much pain to have to continue. Surely no-one is expected to live with pain like this

    No, living with pain is not reasonable. But all pain can be controlled. Between pain management for the physical pain that i have to deal with as well and through coping techniques, awareness, and possibly medications and /or counseling the mental can be dealt with as well. That is th eissue with suicide- it is ending a life - and any potential good - when really all that is wanted is to end the pain. Tell us a little about what is going on or causing your pain and lets look for ways that you can live without the pain.

    Hi blacknblue
    sorry to hear that you are so tired at the moment. I obviously dont know the details of your situation but (from mine) I know that mindfulness can be very good for taking mind off the physical pain as far as possible, though it takes a bit of time to learn how to do. It is also good for negative thoughts that are inevitable when in a difficult situation.
    I can really relate in that (since developing severe tinnitus 4 weeks ago) Ive hardly slept and have been unable to relax in the day time. I would not mind so much if there was hope of the tinnitus going away but it seems that I will have constant loud noises in my head for life. It has thrown me into the deepest of depressions but I'm kind of trying to climb out of it, including spending time on this site. As to being of use to others, you may feel that now (as I do about myself) but I guessing that will chnage. At the moment, I'm reliant on family for doing so many things, as am too depressed to do very much. But I hope that I will be kind of back to my old self one day not too far off and will be able to repay their kindness when they need help.
    Anyhow, hope things get better for you.

    I am sorry you're hurting.

    I know what it is like to live with pain, and I know there might be more bad days than there are good. Most chronic pains do come with better days (though you might not be pain free, at least it hurts a little less) I learned that the key is to recognice those... and celebrate it.
    As bobbob said, mindfullness can work wonders as well. Meditation can give respite too. I used that before I got on pain relief, and I still do sometimes.

    I would lie in bed, in the most comfortable position and listen to music, the trick is to focus on one instrument or voice and slowly you can actually experience some painfree minutes as you float away. It worked for me, when I was spending my days in bed crying because it hurt too much to move.

    Please don't give up. I don't know the details of your ailments but please don't give up. Have you been to every specialist? What if they can develop something in the future that could make you better?
