I'm just feeling a bit low just now. It's been a difficult week, and it feels like no-one understands, so I thought I would come to the place where I know many will really understand just how I feel.
All this week the pain in my buttocks/legs has been a lot worse. When I sit it feels like I'm sitting on broken glass, and my legs feel like they are being gripped in a vice which has razor blades in it. On top of this I feel so drained, yet I'm finding I can't sleep well.
I've been using my stick on the two occasions I've been out. One time was just 2 roads away to visit a friend, but I had to sit on someone's wall to rest halfway. The other was a bus ride to the small shopping centre, but I could only do one shop & had to come home.
Currently, I've been diagnosed with CFS/ME, but I'm not sure that this is a correct diagnosis. I understand that CFS is of sudden onset, but my pain/fatigue has been progressing for over 5 years now. I'm also not sure if the sort of acute neuropathic pain I've described above is typical of CFS?
Anyway, I've had a good cry, and just wanted to come where I know folk will understand. Thank you for 'being there' for me to let it out to. You are all appreciated.
