I'm new here. After about 15 years of suffering with aneamia I've finally realised I need to reach out to others. It's such an isolating thing to have. Those close to me do their best in trying to understand what it's like but I think I can only say that my Mum gets it the most.
I've tried to explain my best to others close to me, and they do well but I can't help but feel that those foggy/tired waves I get are a burden to them. That they think I can snap out of it. And that they can heap all sorts on me because I've had a restful day. I just wish someone close to me knew what that awful tiredness/drained feeling feels like. It can affect me socially too which in the past couple of years has gotten me down as I used to have so much social energy.
Would love to chat with anyone who feels the same. I reckon a load shared is a load lightened.
