Hi, my name is anabella!
I am 51 and have had m.e for over a decade, I have never had family although I do have an adult daughter, it is a complicated relationship. I live in Devon and am alone all the week, that includes talking to anyone or seeing anyone except for a cpl of hours if I can make it to my daughters. I do have a sweet dog who deserves more walks than I can give. I have no friends left. My confidence, weight, and trust are shot to pieces. Along with m.e the effects and situations include great grief, anxiety and depression mostly exacerbated by my long term illness and isolation. I still have humorous moments, tho am struggling a lot again lately to find joy, not helped by being perimenopausal. Would love to have you say hi. K x
