why does ur username make me think of policeman from the bill?! there will be a connection somewhere i just cant work it out at the mo!
i am fairly disabled now but am hoping u will see where i am coming from…
i am single mum to 4 kids. used to work part time. was a car driver. volunteer for various things. blah blah-am just trying to build a picture here! now i have carers in, no job, no car… i was a psychiatric nurse for 10 years so i appreciate how important mental health is but it wasnt until 2 1/2 yrs ago i found myself putting all my theory into practise. in fact i feel grateful to be able to see it from the other side. grateful i hear u say?! i do mean that because the alternative for me was to ponder over what i have lost and become angry and bitter (with myself and others) who would benefit from that?!
i echo the others… do what u have to in order to get through each day. whether that be at work or at home. erase the word guilt from ur vocabulary! u r not wonderwoman-tho am guessing u would look grand in the costume!!!
i cant remember what is was like living without fatigue.
i know u are far from thinking about not working etc but its never too early to start thinking about coping mechanisms for long term use.
i hope that make some sort of sense for you, just offering another venue for u to explore.
ellie (who is still sat in her pjs plucking up energy to get to the loo and thats just the way it is today!)
