Hi everyone! before I took ill I was a member of the SGI (soka gakkai international) Nicheren Buddhist. Since I have become ill I am house bound and can't get out to meetings any more. I have severe ME/CFS so hosting meetings is not possible either. I also struggle to chant. I used to chant about 2 hours a day before and now I struggle to do 2 minutes. I feel like my Buddhist practice is falling apart as I can no longer take part and I am too weak to chant for long periods. I know I need to have compassion for myself but I don't want to give up my Buddhist practice and it's difficult keeping it going (especially the chanting) with this illness. I was wondering how other people who practice this Buddhism cope, if there are any of you on this forum? Have you stopped going to meetings and do you now practice alone as I do. I have had support from other Buddhists but they do not always understand this illness and it's severe limitations.
