I think I've turned invisible you know.
Not including my mum and brother, I have Nathan, and my best friend June.
I have 782 texts in my mobile inbox because I never get round to deleting them, over 700 of those 782 are from Nathan, my received calls list consists of June and Charlottes school.
I know this reads as a WOE IS ME post and an I WANT ATTENTION NOW!! post, but it's not that, it's just another symptom of the ME/CFS thats invisible. The loss of friends, work and a social life, a part of this god awful disorder that no-one even thinks about.
I feel so cut off and isolated being stuck in the house and 100% reliant on Nathan if I'm up to going out but even more so when you suddenly realise it's been weeks or more since you heard from people you miss.
I don't know what bought this to the forefront for me today, most likely the incredibly patronising and aloof tone of the woman from the council today when I said I couldn't make it to the office to bring in some paperwork, I said I couldn't make it because I have ME, not because I couldn't be arsed. I WOULD come to your lovely office if I could, I would hop, skip and dance and relish in the sunlight and fresh air that this time of year brings if I could. But I can't, and DON'T sodding patronise me because I'm ILL, not LAZY.
