Hi.

That's two days in a row ive woke up feeling fed up and not today again. 

I'm one of those that just get on with it and I'm thankful I'm here and stop feeling sorry for myself  but some days this has me beat.

I feel I'm managing but then I'm struck with thrush which I'm struggling to cope and get rid of because I can't eat.

I'm putting supplements down the rig but I feel its beat me.

I was managing to increase my oral intake and now I feel I'm back about a week .

I just feel I'm constantly trying to get rid of something then something else happens 

Any other coping strategy cause mine isn't too hot right now

Hi Abrn

It sounds like you are having a rough time at the moment. It is completely normal to feel fed up and to struggle to cope. I too often struggle and what usually gets me through is knowing this feeling will pass and there will be better days. Try not to be too hard on yourself. At times I describe it as a feeling of taking 2 steps forward and 3 steps back. The community are a great support system during these difficult times. I hope you are feeling more positive soon

Fear of the unknown is the worst thing. Once we know what we're facing, we find the strength to deal with it.
