So I've been really struggling for the past 9 months - very quickly bedbound, unable to prepare food so need a carer, in constant pain, needing mobility aids - and it had been suggested I might have ME but never formally diagnosed. ME has a small chance of recovery so a part of me thought maybe I won't have to deal with this forever. But now I've been diagnosed, I know that fibro is forever and I'm feeling very hopeless about life like this. I don't know how I can be happy like this. How do other people cope? What things could I do and enjoy that aren't too tasking?
