Chronic illness

petitebumblebeepetitebumblebee Member Posts: 6 Connected
I've been suffering with chronic illness for several years. I have Fibromyalgia, ME, cervical and lumbar spinal problems, depression, and many other health issues. I joined yesterday to hopefully make new friends, and to get, and to give support to others. 
I feel isolated and lonely a lot of the time. I used to have my own business, of nearly 10 years, but had to cease trading,  due to my body slowly giving up, with chronic illness. 
I have found that, by taking one day at a time, I can cope better mentally. 
Remember, after the dark, comes light!

    Hi @petitebumblebee, and a warm welcome to the community!

    Thanks for sharing this with us- I live with chronic illness to, as do many others on the community, and know how isolating it can feel. I hope you find comfort in being among others who understand, and do let us know if we can be of assistance!
