Does anyone have any suggestions on meditation for managing depression / anxiety / sleep?
A combination of medical problems, relationship issues, stressed at work and growing anxiety issues has left me at times depressed - in truth suicidal. Managing better now and running helps enormously. However a major issue is struggling to stay asleep at night. Getting to sleep easy enough but rarely getting more than 4 hours. I believe that meditation might assist with this along with anxiety and panic attacks. Anyone got any ideas?
Is there anything more on this forum about fibromyalgia?
I do not have a diagnosis yet, but have all of the symptoms including most of my muscles (neck, arm, hand, legs, feet) having a constant ache or 'burning' sensation. I have numbness in fingers and toes, some spasms, very poor sleep. BUT exercise helps - during and for about an hour or so afterwards.
Well done LMB - good determination. You'll recover and get back to better times. Keep at it.
I had a short hill walk today and felt OK - beautiful evening. Won't run till mid next week. Now waiting for an overnight flight with glass of wine in hand.
Cbo - did Amsterdam last year (and 55 minutes faster than this year's Edinburgh!). Well organised and flat (though I heard several people complaining of the "hills" - bridges over canals! Doesn't really take in the sights of Amsterdam though and similar to Edinburgh quite industrial in parts. Stadium start and finish is great. No relays and half marathon starts after the full finishes!
Cbo - wow - famous. In with the elites. It is great to see the elites heading the other direction (many miles ahead).
Great to see so many people going for their next marathon. Assuming I can recover, after WHW I've the Speyside way in August, then in Autumn I've Amsterdam and San Antonio marathons (both based on travel with work). I would really like to get an entry to Boston next year....
