It is a good ship, despite why we all come here, as it helps us support each other.

Hi, I’m a newby too although don’t have a positive diagnosis yet. I live in Spain so feeling a bit lonely but have a really supportive family.

Hiya

I can tell you the folks on here are as good as family support with the added bonus of understanding the stuff thats very difficult to describe.

Welcome aboard.

Hi Jan. My fatigue is better then it was. It has got slowly better but I still feel tired most of the time. When it first hit I was too exhausted to even move my head and had trouble breathing due to the exhaustion but it has got better. I understand how frustrating it is as I am a very active person. Missing my mountain walks and riding my motorbike but I am sure it will sort out in the end.

Hi Chris and Kirstie, I am sick of this fatigue, and its getting me down.I have not worked since Nov 11,this is due to good and bad days…Out of 7days I can have 3 good days. My legs are all stiff and find walking difficult if I have been sat for a while, or if I may of done 2 much.

How do you all cope with memory loss or thinking things through, I have found this very strange to deal with, and I noticed this last yr. Keep intouch everyone, its good to chat to people the same as me… lol

Jan

Hi Jan, it’s difficult to deal with, that’s for sure. Sorry for not coming back sooner but have been in hospital to try to get this last attack under control. When the fatigue is bad you just have to give in to it coz you can’t fight it. When I first felt the fatigue I thought I could fight it or ride through it but I have had to change my attitude to this because it doesn’t work. So don’t punish yourself if there are days when you can’t do anything. On better days I set myself little tasks, nothing excessive but at least I feel I have achieved something which is good for the mind!! Chin up and try to keep up beat xx
