Ditto same here...only time I go out is to see my doctor or hospital. I used to be such an independent person and now I'm slowly giving up xx

me too. I am not me anymore. I have no life. can't do the things I used to and yes I was always active but not now. feel like I have the flu all the time with these muscle aches and constant fatigue. so debilitating you don't want and can't go out socialising. I am so close to giving up my sport of 28 years as I can't cope anymore playing it. xx

Its a vicious circle hun...so sorry to hear you might have to give up the sport you love but I 100% understand how you feel 😕 I was always out, smile on my face, make up and hair done. Now my neighbours wouldn't know if I was dead or alive!! If I do go out which is very rare I have to plan it so precisely so I see as less people as possible, its a vile feeling which then enters into a different feeling of how lonely I am. Stepping out of the door becomes impossible, even to take the rubbish out!! I miss appointment through this, I look at photos and think if I could turn the clock back...I could go on forever Mandy xx

I also have an app on my phone with sounds of the seaside which is good to listen to at night. I'm a cancerian too so being by water takes all my pain away for a short while....its much better wen I can get to stay with my adoptive mum who lives by the sea ❤
