I've had Chronic Epstein Barr Disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, GERD/acid reflux, Leaky Gut Syndrome, and a bunch of food allergies for almost 2 years now (was just diagnosed a few months ago though) and I'm just at the end of my rope here. I'm tired. Physically, mentally, emotionally... I'm just so sick and tired of being sick and tired. I've got too many different symptoms to list here...but basically every symptom that you could ever link to any of the illnesses listed above. So anyway, I'm just looking for some support/ people to relate to. Anyone dealing with anything similar? Any ideas on how to cope? I wanna live my life. Just still learning how to do this with a chronic illness...

You do need to involve close family and even closer friends. As a guy I find it difficult to express my feelings about Chronic Fatigue because you usually associate it with a condition that women experience much more than men. I can try to be a sounding board if you are interested. Take care and good luck. Nick

Alli. I completely understand where ur coming from!! I have been saying the exact same thing!'. I am sick and tired of being sick and tired!! I mean I have a wonderful supportive husband but I know he feels at a loss as to what to do for me, and I know him and my kids get tired of hearing me complain about hurting or feeling so bad or not ever having energy to even clean my house or cook much!! I'm sorry about what ur going thru I know how rough it is!! I have fibromyalgia and inflammatory arthritis, hypothyroidism, high blood pressure, depression, fatty liver, and I believe (tho I've not been diagnosed with it) cf. I don't work and hardly leave the house except for church. Sometimes I feel like my life is over bc I cant seem to be able to do anything!! It does help to read this forum!! I know I'm not alone in this!!

Thank you both for answering! And Ena, I totally understand!!! I never go anywhere except church too! It's hard learning to live like this. And my friends and family try, but they just don't get it! I never consistently feel good or bad, so it's hard for others to make sense of whats really going on. I feel so bad to be such a burden to all of them...It's still just such a huge learning experience, but day by day, I'm figuring it out. And like you said, this forum is sooooo helpful!
