I’ve had symptoms for the past 8 years but was only officially diagnosed in February. I thought I was handling it ok – wasn’t looking to change anything I’d been doing just maybe not push myself as hard – then Covid-19 hit. Again was ok at the start but now my fatigue is hitting me earlier and earlier in the day and I can just about manage to function. I have a 2yo who is usually in nursery 3 days a week to help with my fatigue and was trying to do lots of different things to entertain her but now not only can I hardly get myself going I feel like I’m really letting her down by not being as patient and fun a mum as I want to be! She’s bored (aren’t we all!) but each day is becoming more of a challenge and I’m getting frustrated at myself not being able to be as active as I would like with her which has made me start to worry about the future and what might happen. Have frightened myself a bit recently having seen a couple of ms articles and possible things that could happen – I know I shouldn’t worry about things I can’t affect but my anxious brain keeps whirring!
I know we each travel a different path and cannot predict what might be and to be honest a lot of this probably comes from exhaustion, i’ll no doubt feel better tomorrow but right now I’m really, really fed up with myself and this feeling of not being able to concentrate on anything properly 😩
