Friday, 06 September 2019. Issue #177.

In this issue: The miserable isolation of being chronically ill, and how a simple hello from a friend helps a great deal. Saving a pain level of ’10’ for when you ‘really need it’, even though you’re in unbearable pain. Taking vitamin B for fatigue and brain fog, under doctor’s instruction. There is no shame in using mobility aids, especially if they will help you to spend more quality time with family and friends. When brain fog makes you feel like you’ve lost your self-identity and intelligence. The vicious cycle of pain, physical appearances and self-esteem. The shocking cost of living with fibromyalgia or any other chronic illness. Allowing ourselves to ask for help and thus participate in the fullness of humanity, instead of seeing it as a fault. The importance of staying hydrated – by the time you’re thirsty you’re already dehydrated.
