Hello everyone. Wanting to contact "the family".about fatigue I was amazed at how many of you suffer from it. There doesn't seem to be an answer and I'm so sorry to learn that there are so many of us. I want to ask how many of you live alone. I am 77 (going on 40 in my head) and spend most days alone with no contact from anyone and we all know isolation is "a killer" but because of fatigue can't take myself off somewhere. Like Aimee, forced myself to go for a walk at the weekend and needed the arm of a comparative stranger to help me home. I too have ET but my heamo says my bloods are perfect! Not sure about that as am on the same dose now (platelets 480) as when first diagnosed (platelets 1400). Had "melt down" a few weeks ago and began seeing a therapist who has no understanding of ET and who told me I was depressed and. Instead of seeing life through rose-coloured specs. Was looking through grey ones! So,my friends, am having a rant - but am finding things a bit tough at the moment. I send you all a communal hug and thanks for listening. Mary
