   I thought I had a question, but not sure at this point, LOL.  I was put on Amantadine, and was somewhat sure it was working.  I recently stopped taking it cause i was a royal "you know what" and wanted to see if it was the meds.  Well, i'm liking myself and others again, but the fatigue is to much to handle.  Alls I did the other day was wash the ambulance and it took me close to 48 hours to recover.  Alls i want to do at this point is sleep.  So I guess i'll start the meds again, and hope to be nice. 
   You know, I used to wash 2 ambulances and have no problems afterwards sweeping out the bay and not have a break.  I guess I have to recognize my limitations and take more breaks.  I woke up this morning and felt symptoms i haven't felt in a while.  Would this be from overdoing it? 
   March 6th is just around the corner, and im scared as hell for them to say I have an incurable disease.  I'm thinking more of the future than everyday life, and its depressing me.  It helps to read the posts everday, but I never know what to post myself.

Hi Bonnie,
So good to see you!  I guess you have your answer as to if the amantidine was helping the fatigue!  You will have to weigh out whether it's worth the ms. jekyl/hide or not!
Pace yourself and try not to kick yourself if you can't do all you used to.  I hope your appt. goes well.  Please keep us posted.  Take care! ~hugs~

Hey Bonnie!

It's good to see u here again! Im sorry u'r having probs with the med and fatigue, but as Michelle said, u'll have do decide if it's worth it to continue or not. As far as i've seen here, yes, extending u'rself can bring on intensity of u'r symptoms and just drag u down. Take care and try to limit u'rself even when u feel u can do more. It's hard, i know. U'r mind says go, go, go, but u'r body can only do so much. Take care and let us know how u'r appt goes.
