New to the joys of #ChronicFatigue ! #sarcasm

So, I've only recently been diagnosed with #ChronicFatigueSyndrome (moderate) and I'm learning the basics of Pacing and trying to rest as much as possible. I'm very lucky that it's possible for me to rest a lot!

I've also dealt with anxiety for a few years and that's pretty well managed with medication but recently I find I'm getting very anxious before I need to do anything that isn't resting. I'm anxious that I'll run out of energy during a coffee with a friend and they won't understand why I'm suddenly so spaced out. I worry that I'm talking about #ME and #Fatigue too much and they'll think I'm complaining, when I'm really just trying to forewarn them. I'm anxious about the crash that will happen if I push myself too far - will it just affect me for a week or will it affect me forever. I'm worried that I'll say no to too many events and people will stop asking me or wanting to be around me. I'm worried my niece and nephew will think I don't want to spend time with them because I so often can't. I get irrationally anxious my partner will get sick of me - even though they've been with me through cancer and more. There's a lot of new anxieties mixed up in this, and I worry I'm feeling agoraphobic.

I was wondering if anybody else experiences this? I guess now that I'm writing it down, it sounds completely logical considering the new diagnosis - it just feels anything but logical when your thoughts are in a negative spiral! It would help to know I'm not alone 💙

Ways to cope or distract from anxiety?

#Anxiety

Hello! Call me Vine. I've been struggling with my anxiety lately. Just your basic overthinking really. It could be stress too. Anyways, I'm searching for a way to cope or distract myself until I can go back to therapy. I've tried music (which is normally the thing that helps most), videos, video games, writing a story, watching movies, texting friends for support or advice (they don't respond and leave me on read), and coloring. What do you all do to cope or distract?
