I was diagnosed with CFS/ME a little while ago and the realisation that my condition will not get better - if anything, it will get worse - is hitting me hard. Does anyone have any advice on how to deal with this?
Does anyone else in a wheelchair feel frustrated like i do. I live in Manchester UK and the arena has wheelchair spaces granted but where they are you can only watch on the screen. We have access to theaters but one where the wheelchair spaces are there's a column in the way. Would love to see my favorite artists with my husband but theres no way. Also in some places you have to go down an alleyway for access. Wish in this day and age wheelchair spaces were closer so you could see.
I am lost for words after reading this article. The 22 year old disabled woman's mother has said she would take care of the baby and yet they are still forcing the abortion. The woman's social worker has also said an abortion should not happen. How can the judge still make this ruling?
Never mind that she is under NHS care and they have no idea how she got pregnant in the first place.
I posted here about a month ago asking if it was worth reaching out to a doctor for fatigue. Everyone was really nice and offered some great advice. After talking to some friends too I decided to finally see a doctor.
They did a bunch of bloodwork but everything came back normal. I know for sure now I don't have a thyroid issue and I don't have any inflammatory issues (I'm having some joint pain too so they checked for arthritis). I'm glad that those conditions were ruled out but I feel a bit discouraged since I don't have an answer. We're going to probably check for nutritional problems next.
I've had to miss out on things I find fun and time with family because I would be too tired to function. If this is something I can fix then I want to do whatever I can to fix it. I also feel like I'm making this all up cuz as far as I can tell I have no reason to be this tired. People look at me strangely when I say I'm tired after doing almost nothing even though I genuinely am. It's discouraging that these problems are going to still be a thing for a while but I'm going to keep trying.
Let me know if this sort of post doesn't really belong here but I wanted to post about progress! I also wanted to thank everyone for being supportive when I posted last time. I'd really been putting off going to the doctor for almost 6 months so it was helpful to have people tell me that this was something worth getting help for.
Hi guys/gals! I don’t know if this is the right place to post, but if not, feel free to let me know. So I have an issue where I can’t stand for long amounts of time due to my fibromyalgia and other issues, which obviously keeps me from working many of the jobs out there. I’m also 16 which greatly reduces my available opportunities. What kind of jobs would be good for me? Thanks!
Does being disabled mean you can't have custody of your children? Can they make you keep following up with CPS to prove that you're healthy like with a drivers license? Like if you can't work, but can otherwise support your child off of disability and TANF and things like that, is that ok? What kind of laws protect disabled parents?
