Covid-19 has changed all of that. Everyone else is now thinking about their health. Worldwide. And those of us who are blessed to have safe homes and enough food, are quarantining and are restricted in our movements outside of our homes.
Over the years that we’ve spent sick with ME/CFS, we’ve struggled to explain to others what we’re going through in terms of isolation. The separation from others, the long periods of time by ourselves, the depression that creeps in. The endless “I’m sorry I can’t be with you todays”. The feeling that we’ll be stuck like this for months and possibly years. And the helplessness that goes with it.
I don’t think that anyone reading this blog is happy to have company in this isolation due to the pandemic. But I don’t think that we’ll need to explain this part of our struggle with ME/CFS anymore.
To all of you, please, stay safe. Stay home. And don’t hesitate to call on friends and neighbors to bring you what you need. ME/CFS is an under lying condition that further compromises our risk of contracting the virus. Please COMMENT or Send in your thoughts and I’ll post them with your permission. You can use the Contact Form or send an email to Martha at DefeatCFS dot net. And Guest Blogs are most welcome!
Look for a weekly posting on Tuesdays. And consider being part of the conversation.
Be Well Again,
