((((Hugs)))) Angie. I'm so sorry about
how sick you are and how much pain you are in. Was the ER able to help with your pain at all? I hope it doesn't take too long for the antibiotic to kick in.
I don't blame you for feeling the way you do. Having a chronic illness is hard enough and then getting really sck on top of it can just be too much sometimes. I'm glad you have friends checking in on you. If you ever need support at night and not many people seem to be on the forum, you can always go to the HealingWell chat roon - there are always people on there at night. You can go to any of the rooms - you don't have to just go to the CFS chat room.
I hope you got some sleep last night and some relief from the pain. Take care
