I’m Tired of Being Tired

I was recently diagnosed and while I’m devastated to have this disease on one hand, I’m thankful to finally have some answers. I don’t think my family really believed that I was sick because I was tired all of the time and in pain. But now I have a name for it.

    Hi Astrid,

    So sorry to hear about your diagnosis. I can totally relate to your feelings about it – not knowing what is going on or why it is happening can be very difficult, especially if family don’t quite understand how you are feeling. I hope you will find this community a support – we are here for you.

    I hope that the pain and fatigue aren’t too bad for you today, and you are able to get some relief soon.
