Megzlegz, Wow, I love how strong you are & what you said. Even though you are ill, you deserve to have a mate who cares deeply about you & your feelings. Sounds like your boyfriend is a bit shallow, that is not to say he couldn't change but don't count on it. I have been ill with CFS/ME for 12 years, I still feel unwell most of the time & so it is unknown whether you will get better or not. My husband was very sorry for my illness even though he didn't understand it. He was loving & kind. He died in 2009, I have remained single because it is easier for me that way but I am 65 & you are 25. You will find someone who loves you for who you are & will care for you & understand your illness & limitations. It is hard being sick & trying at the same time to keep someone happy, you can't hide your illness it is impossible & pushing yourself will only make you sicker. Stress is not good for us, we will use a lot of our energy by stressing out, you need your energy for living your life. I hope you figure out what you want to do, I wish the best for you. Let us know what you decide to do. Hugs, Denise
