I'm new here!

Hi, my name is Anne. I'm here because I had breast cancer. the treatment was successful in that there is no more cancer but within 6 months of treatment I began develop fatigue while following all the medical instructions to overcome Cancer Related Fatigue: participate in an exercise for patients recovering from treatment, return to work very part time, and get back to my life slowly. In January 2024, 13 months since the cancer diagnosis I was told I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I am no longer able to work. I live alone. I live in Europe; a long way from family. It have been ill now for 19 months. I am hoping to find ways to cope with the loneliness and the disconnect I am experiencing from friends, family and colleagues. My community of many is now the community of a handful.

Managing Your Experience of Medical Trauma Step 1

No pain is insignificant. Suffering is universal.

Many people are too quick to say that "no matter what you are going through, someone has it worse" or "there is always someone with bigger problems". It is emotionally dismissive and conveys the message that your struggle is insignificant and that you are overreacting...my concern is, how is the situation affecting you?
