Coping With Loneliness When You Have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or Fibromyagia

COPING WITH LONELINESS WHEN YOU HAVE CFS – by Catherine Morgan

Since I began working on this Chronic Fatigue web-site I have read many other bloggers with CFS, and viewed many video-accounts of people suffering with CFS. One thing stands out to me, and that is the feeling of loneliness that most all of these people are feeling. Some physically alone, others emotionally alone, many both.

I wanted to take some time and address this issue, because it seems so important. The first thing I always want to say is “ You are not alone ”. Those words sound nice, and I believe them 100%, but the words don’t make it so.

The two major reasons people with CFS feel alone are: 1) physically not being able to get out and be around people due to symptoms of this condition, and 2) feeling like no one in their life understands what they are going through. Sometimes I think the latter is the harder one to overcome. I wish I could call this post “How To Not Feel Alone When You Have CFS”. Unfortunately, there is no easy way to help this problem of loneliness. So instead, this post will be about; Awareness. Since awareness is always the first step to solving any problem, that is where I will start in addressing this problem…..This will be the first of many posts I will do on this issue.
