Hi there! This is my first time here. I’m a mom and struggle with chronic Illness and being mostly at home except for the exception of appointments. What about you?

      I rarely have the energy to go out and do much of anything, outside of doctors appointments, as well. POTS is probably the illness that effects me the most. It's depressing, tbh.

      Hi everyone! I don’t have any support outside of who lives in my home. Luckily my husband and kids are fantastic. All other friends and family left or were not healthy to maintain relationships with unfortunately. What types of things do you do guys do at home?

        @Lemonyellow Hi there ! Just recently I decided to make miniature room kits . I am not that good yet but it makes me happy so far . My circle is very small. I keep to myself it gets exhausting to tell people I am fine when I am not . I am new also like 2 days but welcome.

      I'm relatively new here, too, and am in a similar boat. I'm not a parent (I live with my mom who has a lot of emotional needs), but I usually only leave the house once a week other than appointments. I try to reward myself for appointments with something small. And I'm working on getting out more.

      Hello there!! I’m pretty much in the same boat. I’m struggling to get my adult children to be more understanding with my health issues. I have multiple diagnoses and actually just qualified for disability. My husband is great but my kids act like it’s all in my head. It’s so hurtful and frustrating! Do you have a lot of family support?
