can anyone relate to this extreme fatigue, body aches And just overall feeling worthless? The struggle these past few months has been really hard. I'm a single mom of two and the stress is insurmountable, combined with the flare ups and just general pain, idek what to do. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    It's hard to ask for help and even harder to get it. We live in a culture where only paid labor is valued and all help should be paid. This is something I struggle with as a mom to three kids. My only suggestion is to build a community you can share labor with in some way. And people who help you understand that needing rest and help does not mean you are failing but that you are human. How you do that? I don't know. I'm still struggling myself.

    I’m so sorry you’re going through this. I know the struggle of having to deal with this plus be a mom too however i know it’s prob ten times worse for you being a single mom and I hate that for you. 😣 I can definitely relate to how difficult and hard this is…. I’ve been dealing with it off and on for 6 years and now since October it has gotten drastically worse.. I have a supportive doctor so that helps but I’m trying my best to stay positive.. however it’s hard

    I myself have a 18 month old. I find that it helps to know your physical limitations and to take your time with each task. For example, if I do laundry I wait to do any other chore that day
