hi everybody, i'm a 22 year old,bloke,living in cambridgeshire area who suffers from c.f.s(m.e) and this is the first time i have looked at a site about it and im very pleased to learn that other people are going through what i go through.
i got diagnossed with m.e about 7 years ago but then seemed to clear up, i finished school went to work and after a year became very ill with m.e.
since then ive had ups and downs with my body and my mind, recently though i have had a major down in the way i'm feeling with it all. For about the last 4 months i have been pritty much bed ridden and left feeling very tired with aches and pains all the time,i have however tried to keep mentaly strong hoping for it to one day go away, but so far no such luck and i'm beginning to lose faith.
Recently i have found it hard to comunicate with people such as friends and family.
I have lost a lot of friends over it recently due to me not being much fun anymore because of it. i find myself not going out at all anymore because i am just too tired rather than before i would make a little effort not to complain all the time to friends, but i am finding it hard right now to keep friends because i moan so much to them about my aches and tiredness that i don't blame them for not coming to see me.
i feel except from my mother who is supportive that i have no-one who understands the way i feel everyday completly drained and am writing this to urge others who are in the same predicament to reply or get in contact if it's getting you down to
thanks for hearing me ramble on rik firstname.lastname@example.org
