    Sorry to read that your pain is causing you to feel angry @natz2009

    Do you have any coping techniques that help to calm your mood? If I'm ever getting irritated or worked up about something I find that listening to music or watching a nice film helps me to relax and take my mind off things. What do you enjoy doing?

    I clean i call it my rage clean lol but this then makes my pain worse so sometimes it seems lile im going round n round on a merry go lol i keep it to myself but lately seems to be harder n harder to hold in i am going to speak with my gp tomorrow as i dont want it getting out of hand i have 5 kids so getting some chill time or me time is a struggle sometimes so rather than sit angry i clean and usually i am calm by the time im done xx

    Rage clean? :D That's funny, but I'm glad it helps you @natz2009 :) 

    Yes, speaking with your GP sounds like a super idea, hopefully they will be able to advise. 

    Take care

    That makes sense @natz2009. Please do speak to your GP, and let us know how you get on. 5 kids- what a handful! Are they at school yet?

    I think many of us can empathise with having difficulty getting an appointment with the GP @natz2009 :( Is there a time that's best to call, such as first thing in the morning?

    Yes I seem to be more angry and snap a lot easier than I used to. I have talked to my partner and my son and explained it's my pain that's making me how I am and I'm lucky they understand and don't take it personally. I'm now with the pain clinic so hoping they can help with it. Try not to feel guilty about it just maybe explain to your loved ones it's not them it's the pain your in. Hope you get some help x
