Just curious, for those with CFS, what happens when you have a flare? Can you predict when a flare is coming on? How do you get through your flares? For those that are single, how do you get through it alone? My mother drove 2 hours to my house because I did not answer the phone for 2 days, and she was worried. I feel bad about putting this extra stress on my parents. Last week/this past weekend I had the worst flare of this DD. I am concerned that my flares are getting worse with each epsiode. I am curious for those who have had this DD longer than I if there are any "secrets" you can share.
