First off littlemama33, as long as You know you have a CHRONIC Illness that requires rest and attention from a Dr. you are doing well for yourself and quite honestly if your family doesn't beleive you, that's their selfish issues. I know that sounded harsh
but that's a pet peeve of mine, propably because I've been lucky, I was sick for 3 years Before I got EBV/CFS so my family including my "mostly" grown children never doubted me for a minute. Enough about
me, does anyone else in your family have any kind of chronic illness, arthritis, thyroid issues etc., looking for an ali even if its a 3rd cousin or someone outside the family, I don't know if Chronic Illness Groups are a possibility for you but you can find info on the net and you might even find an online one
Also if you have a Dr. that acknowledges your illness you could have your husband at least come with you to your next appt. and let the doc. explain what you are and are not capable of. I'm single but i know some other married people on this forum have had success with that. I hope I was of some help and Keep In Touch, we ALWAYS understand.
