aquarias, I'm sorry that you sontinue to feel so sick. I do believe you are right about
the 6 month thing. I do think it is really important to continue to get tests done once in a while especially when you feel really sick or if you develop any new symptoms. I do think your descript
ion of feeling like you have the flu goes along with CFS. I think a lot of people with CFS feel very sick.
hopestudios, welcome. It is frustrating to battle a chronic illness for so long and to know that there is no cure. CFS seems to have fallen off the radar in the medical community and you don't hear about
a lot being done to find a cure or to help people live more "normal" lives. You have a great attitude about
not giving up. My symptoms went into remission for several years and I felt almost "normal" but I still had to rest more than most people.
I think all of us need to hold out for hope. If I didn't have hope that things would get better I'd probably give up.
