Wackers, I too have days that I can do more then usual but for me they are not very often. I love those days, I feel almost well but then the fatigue & sickness come back. I live for days like that.
With any kind of chronic illness you will go through a period of mourning for your old life as you learn to live within the bounds of your illness. We live one day at a time & that is really hard to adjust to after leading a more fast paced life. But you can do it.
I was dx'd in 2006 with both FM & then CFS. I didn't have a virus or anything, it just came on one day & that was it. Everything in my life changed. I try to enjoy my life right now having my daughter & 2 garandchildren living with me. We are all used to each others illnesses & get along great. I would not have this time with them if I was still working. So, I can't say I am sad that I am not working. I have mourned that part of my life & moved on.
Feel free to ask any questions you want & I will see if I can answer them. I think your plan is a good one. Hugs, Denise
