Hello all, my first time posting so I apologise for it being quite a low post, but that’s where I am at the moment. I have EDS and POTS, and for just over a week have been laid low with a nasty bout of flu. A lot of friends in my peer group have had it, but are now on the road to recovery, whereas today, after trying to walk a mile yesterday, I can barely stand for long, and don’t have the strength to even step outside. When I’m well I’m grateful that I’m able to manage my EDS to the point where I can walk up mountains and wild swim, several times a week, but at the moment I’m feeling hopeless. All of this is compounded by the fact that I’m trying to buy a house by myself, after my husband Rich died unexpectedly at the age of 37 four years ago. In the last few weeks the developer has treated me with complete and utter disdain, and it looks like they’re about to pull the house away (it’s a new build), despite me being a cash buyer. I’ll be house-less rather than homeless as I have somewhere to stay whilst I search again, but as I read this back I can see that there’s no wonder I’m laid low. Not looking for suggestions so much, more reassurance and understanding.
