    These would all be so VERY nice….but in reality…..a person with this disease still has to get up and go to work, (unless they are fortunate enough to have an understanding husband/wife or family that supports them, I don’t and never have) therefore, how do you fit all of this (rest, good food, plenty of water, having a hobby, meditation, naps and preparing food ahead of time) when I hardly have enough time to take a shower daily. I’m trying to keep a house, pool, child all up and myself. It’s all falling in on me after 40 years of trying. I’m tired and feel I’m not disabled enough to quit work but can’t afford to work part time. My SS disability would be more than what I bring home but getting approved and getting started is the problem. My doc. wants me to work because he says it’s routine and will keep me healthier, I disagree, I’m depressed all the time because I’m always fighting to keep up.

      Hi Marcie, we are very sorry to hear that. Maybe joining support groups even just on Facebook will be helpful enough as there are other people who are going through what you are going through. Know that you are never alone in this and you have a community here with you as well. Sending positive vibes your way.
