Hi Caren, The only help I can be is to say that I sleep for hours myself. Yesterday I slept for about 20 hours, then I am awake for quite awhile & have to sleep again for over 15 hours. If I sleep 12 hours or less then I will be in bed again in 12 hours. My life is governed by my sleep, I have tried to have a somewhat normal sleep schedule but have found with this illness that is just not possible. I take each day as it comes, if I have an appointment I have to change my sleep schedule to accommodate it. Hope you are doing well otherwise. Hugs, Denise

I, too, stay tired. I think the longest I have slept is 22 hours straight through. I usually sleep between 12-15 hours a day. If I don't get what I need, I have problems feeling okay, my throat bothers me more as far as reflux, I hurt more and I am not a very nice person. I have to get a nap when I get tired because I can't do anything else until I do. Like right now. I ALWAYS fall back on being up all night and then sleeping during the day. Which isn't good if you want to do anything with family or by myself. Yes, I have to get up and go to Drs. apptmts, etc. Usually on my husband's day off. Some days I can drive and somedays I am too tired or just not alert enough to do so safely. I had surgery on my spine and it all started after that. One more stress that went too far!

I feel badly that I do sleep that long and cannot keep up with the little house we have or let dishes sit in the sink for a few days. We never have company. I don't go anywhere except shopping and usually someone goes with me.
My dad thinks its my shrink and her "magic pills" that make me so tired, but its not yeah Its this CFS/fibro stuff.
Even my Dr. says, " you need a new shrink". He cannot imagine that I need so much antidepressant or anxiety meds, or sleep meds. He would never give me that much, but he is a GP and not a specialist. We have tried just about every med made and I can't tolerate side effects or I am allergic to it. I have thought about seeking a new specialist in that field, but most in my area are not taking new patients or have retired. I would have to drive into the city and that would be no fun. I think the meds my shrink give me are fine. I have looked them up and the doses are within outpatient limits. Anyway, I feel very guilty a lot because of the mess in the house. I start things and don't finish them or they sit because they are not easy to do. I'm sure many of you out there have the same problems.
