Do Not Disturb - James!

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

It is one of those problems that is not really recognised ... although it exists ina  few forms, and those who suffer with it have a very hard time coping ... exhaustion, waking tired, feeling of muscle weekness, headaches, eye pain, joint pain ... etc.  However, although it is not always seen as something severe it can lead to total immobility, and secondary problems due to lack of ability for personal care.

Some people have miss used the phrase, putting it is an excuse for a "sickie" .... but let me assure you it is real!

Yes, that is what the final 99% diagnosis is ... I think my doctor is not wanting to admit that is the reason I am so rough, as sadly there is no cure ... just learning to manage the symptoms.

So 10 months in, and that is what I have ... and this week has shown me what that exhaustion is like ... not getting out of bed most of Tuesday, yet still feeling exhausted come Wednesday.

Oh well, at least I know it's nothing nasty (as such) I just need to learn to rest more, and avoid stress ... HA, HA, HA

Thanks for all the support over these months ... I dare say I may have a rant at some time again in the future!
