I had CFS when I was 10 but that’s not really the question.

Disability – Psychiatric: PTSD, Dissociative Identity Disorder, Anxiety, Depression, and others.

How it affects the relationship – it doesn’t affect it too much. FH has similar so he understands most of the time. He does have to look after me a lot though.

Employment – No. Disability Pension.

Being engaged with a disability – Due to some issues I’ve had with how particularly one of my future in laws chose to deal with my panic attacks (she basically manhandled me, shoved me into the car (the cause of my panic attack was getting back in the car) and yelled about how shit I am), with my PTSD I’m not allowed to be around people who make me feel unsafe so basically we can’t have a wedding now. Which…sucks. But we’re just going to elope and I’m sure it’ll still be lovely.

I have a condition which makes me faint and causes exhaustion because ME overlaps with my symptoms so it makes going anywhere on my own impossible.

h2b is my full-time carer and I think sometimes he hates me having to rely on him all the time.

Not employed and haven’t been in 4 years because I have to spend too much time in bed due to viruses, pain and exhaustion.

Managed to do 90% of the wedding planning online, with suppliers coming to me or meeting at wedding fayres which my 2 aunts and Fiance came to or 2 aunts and MOH/Bridesmaid so I could hold onto them but so far not been able to have a proper engagement party because I might have to leave it early lol!

How have you found it?
