First of all, to everyone who is going through medical issues this time of year. No one should have to be ill, especially this time of year! I was just wondering what everyone does to cope with their illness. I've had Lyme Disease for 4 years (that I know of) and it's made me hypothyroid with adrenal insufficiency, all over body pain and well as feeling like I can't breathe. I have to sleep 12 hours a day and even then I don't feel like I've slept enough. I use to be so active and now i can barely exercise without severe pain and fatigue the next few days. I was so depressed today that I just started crying long and hard. I'm 34 and still single and I am so afraid that no one would want someone with an illness to spend their life with. Since I can't work, I am living at home with my parents and that just makes it worse - who would want a woman who is 34, has Lyme Disease and lives with her parents? At least I am able to go to college (can only go part-time) and I am going to graduate in May, but it takes so much out of me. I'm sorry for venting. Please don't think me selfish - I know so many others have it worse than I do and I do realize that. . .I am so thankful that I am still alive, that I have food and a home to live in and a wonderful family, but all I can think of right now is I feel like my life has been stolen from me and I wonder if I'll ever get it back the way it was. . .I could really use a hug right now!
