Lf1980, sorry I didn't get back to you.Everything seems like a major hassle. And I'm not in great shape because of I'm not even sure, I think spine problems--which makes it hard to stand in one spot long. I was an exercise nut and might have done it to myself. Years ago I had a top notch job in NYC, now I can't even get a 99 cent store job. Someone has to work in this house and even with my physical problems, I think I can do it before my husband because I don't think they would diagnose me with anything specific. Sure I can say I have problems and I do think I can work at a desk, problem is, I don't get interviews and as we know, there aren't many jobs. The cheap paying stores would higher a younger person living at home before me. I am so disgusted at the moment and I think the bi-linguals would definitely get a job before me. So a white semi middle ager is now the minority. I think they would even higher an older person before me. Ok, sorry, I went off venting because this is a bad predicament we are in and I believe in miracles but our problems have been going on for years, since we moved where we are.
My husband is falling asleep so often, I think he has CFS, though I'm not a doctor. He says he feels like he has a flu often or just plain sick. He hardly goes out anymore. He was out for a short time yesterday and thinks that's why he feels bad today or worse today. I can't remeber the last time he felt good. I thought calling a lawyer first, might not be a bad idea, but he never did.
Does anyone know if CFS is hard to get disability for? It should be given. He can't work and I feel helpless.
Thanks for listening and an open to any ideas. He has so many things he claims are wrong with him, yet so far. nothing shows up on tests. It seems like they make it all hard--yet I hear this woman with the 14 babies is getting a new home? It's so insane. I am trying to help and stay calm but it doesn't work somedays.
Thanks for listening. Oh, do most of you agree a rheumotologist(sp) is the best to see? It's getting so crazy. He does have an appointment with a gi guy for stomache problems and wants a colonoscopy. It is just getting overwhelming.
Oh, question about lyme disease, aren't you suppose to see that circular rash? Or is that a thing of the past? If so, and you feel that strong about CFS and fibro stemming from lyme disease--we are near Tucson.
I agree, my heart is broken looking at him and I don't feel he should live like this either.
