Hey everyone.  My name is Chad, and I suffer from CFS, or so I've been told (only took a few years of arguing, and a couple visits to a physiotherapist to convince my doctor that I wasn't depressed).  Finally decided I'd try to talk to people who actually feel the same way I do, then, reading over William's posts, I had found the words I had been searching for for years.  I feel the same fatigue and nervousness, and also jitters (I guess that's what it's called) where I get this shakey feeling throughout my body, like some kind of surge.  My friends at school would always notice and I'd just shrug it off.  Seems to get worse after exercising or not eating for a while.  But I think it's just adrenaline.  I read an article online about test results showing cfs sufferers have reduced levels of cortisol, some energy/allergy hormone, and after that runs out, there's only adrenaline to fuel the body.  And then I found another study showing the reverse, too much cortisol.  A few minutes ago, my mind was racing trying to figure out what I should write, and I couldn't fall asleep, but now it's clouded so I'm just rambling heh.  Reminds me of those RPG boards I used to write on.  Took me hours just to get the words out of the void.  I guess I'll stop there, don't want to say any of the things running through my mind right now (wouldn't want to seem too weird, especially on a first post).  Just wanted to start getting out there, meet some people who know what its like to wake up tired and nap half way through the day.  I always thought that if I could understand this even a little better, then the burden would be that much lighter every day.  I haven't done much experimenting with it, and it probably doesn't affect me as badly as it could if I wasn't so crazy, but I'd still like to help any one who needs it :)
(I'm not always this talkative, but there's a point when natural and chronic fatigue collide, normally any period of time I'm awake longer than 12 hours, and I start getting weird hehe)

Hi, Chad. Welcome to the pce where we sometimes get wordy because we are so foggy brained and wore out dog tired--LOL

Thank God for naps. I'd never get throught the day without them, for sure. Should we all get one of those kindergarten nap mats ?
