this too shall pass

i have not written any posts here for ages for various reasons, one being that lately i have felt overwhelmed with a capital o. infact the word overwhelmed is an understatement. my life with cfs/me feels so unfair. the list of my moans are endless, lack of money as i cant work, major stress getting benefits, knowing my home is going to be repossessed soon, a boiler thats packed in just when its turned very chilly, a major building site across from me that means constant loud drilling and banging noises every day from 8-7 plus a mother who constantly calls to criticize me and judge me, and that's just for starters!

however i have a 'mantra' i say to myself repeatedly: this too shall pass.

everything changes, no situation good nor bad is permenant. i know that things wont always be this way for me, that's how life is.

  1. Kim, I just stumbled upon your blog and thought I would say hi. I too have had CFS and for so long that if I told you you wouldn't believe me. Thankfully life is good now, very good - even if it is very different to what it might have been. I guess I wanted to let you know that there are others out here that get it. The pain, the loss, the strained relationships, the frustration, the humiliation, the paralysing exhaustion, the insensitivity, the heart ache, the head ache, the future that has floated away never to be seen again. I get it and am sorry that you have to deal with it too. I hope this day and many more, is good.
