I met a fellow chronic illness sufferer for coffee today – he and I originally met in a fibro and chronic fatigue support group in Toronto a few years ago. Unfortunately, he suffers from ME / CFS which I have included a bit of details on below. ME has similar symptoms to fibromyalgia.
It always feels nice getting together with a fellow sufferer because they just “get it” and there is a common sense of understanding – not just the big picture, but the little things. He’s having a rough go right now due to his illness flaring, and will be in my thoughts and prayers the next little while. Hang in there friend!
He mentioned that he knows someone else who suffers like us, and she lives right by me downtown, so hopefully she and I can get together and chat 🙂 It’s always nice to find others like “us” out there for moral support.
If any of you are feeling like you need someone to talk to who will just “understand” you, feel free to send me an email and I’ll be more than happy to chat!
I will finally have my computer back tomorrow and will have some time to write a full post again. Stay tuned!
