    Hello @babs1650 and welcome to the community. Don't be too surprised if you find this post twice since, for some reason, the system seems currently to be duplicating all my posts :/
    Don't hesitate to ask any questions or to tell us how you think we might be able to help you.
    Warmest best wishes,

    Hi @babs1650
    Welcome to the community, I am sorry to hear you are struggling.

    Are you getting any support? Perhaps from an Occupational Therapist?

    Hi Babs1650 I have ME/ CFS for 20+ years plus other health conditions.   I went from going to the gym 4 times a week to not being able to walk to the end of the road.  I live with my husband so getting things done is easier for me.  People still have little or no understanding of ME/CFS which makes it very hard for sufferers.  Someone only last week said to me "you don't look like anything is wrong with you" What to do?
