Just looking to get some feedback on how folks out there deal with this side of CFS. I have been thrust into a state of chronic fatigue after taking some antibiotics post surgery back in early September. This definitely was the cause, because my symptoms all started 4 days into taking that medication. Brain fog as well as fatigue 24/7, no matter how much I sleep. Taking adderall and some probiotics/vitamins right now, but I would say I am existing versus living at the time being. Obviously this is taking a toll on me mentally.........thinking about the future, how long will this persist, pushing through things versus really enjoying them, and of course the money needed to try alternative treatments given the traditional medical system really doesn't have any clue here. I know this is a personal question, but curious what people have done to help that side of the issue. Medication is one route of course, and I think I am at the point where this is needed. It was also suggested by my therapist to take a mindfulness based stress reduction class. Anyway, your thoughts are really appreciated!
