feeling helpless feeling hopeless
I have a friend who is suffering with a quite common condition, and one I have myself. This manifests itself in many different ways, from mild to severe rendering the person with the condition bedbound. I am lucky that
i can still function on a certain level but my friend is more complex and it keeps her in bed asleep more than up and awake. I cannot imagine how frustrating and debilitating this is for her and her family. And frustrating for those who know how complex this condition is whilst the nhs doctors think just a tablet cures all. It doesn’t in most people and we are left to just struggle on feeling ill and un believed when we state how we feel. This condition also mimics depression, so we often get told thats all it is and again given drugs that actually do nothing to ease the symptoms.
I’m at a loss as to how to help my freind because without the tests to tell where all her vitamin and mineral levels are we are working blind and could possibly cause more damage 😔
A listening ear is all I can offer and I hope it is enough to keep her spirits up.
