The fact that my aunt has been diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome makes me very concerned…
The fact that she has Crohn’s Disease and I have many of the same symptoms also makes me rather blah…
She has an amazing job and a beautiful 6 year old daughter, and I really hope that she doesn’t get quite as sick as some of us with the illness. We both agreed that this has to be a spectrum illness (or a variety of different illnesses currently under one name), as some people have a few symptoms off of the list, and then some people are completely immobilized from ME/CFS. It has caused so many other parts of my body to fail on me, and I really hope that nothing like that happens to her, as she has more than enough on her plate already after surviving spinal cord tumors and their removal, severe nerve pain (especially in her arm), as well as several autoimmune digestive illnesses.
It doesn’t seem fair that some of us seem to get the whole pile of illnesses!
Mine definitely play head games with me, especially at times like this, when my entire extended family is home and I desperately want to spend time with them, but it’s overwhelming being out and social instead of in bed. I still don’t know what the plans are for tonight! I need someone to write me out a spreadsheet!!!
I feel like this adorable bulldog!!
How is everyone feeling these days? Anyone else seeing new illnesses on their horizon?
