    Argghhh!!! All I have felt like doing lately is laying down. I don't even feel like sitting,lounging,or standing so I just lay down. I am sick of laying in the bed, if you know what I mean. I push myself to get out of the bed and my batteries are all drained in about an hour or two, so it's back to the bedroom. I just want to curl up and rest/sleep and am tired of feeling so useless and miserable. Anyone else???

    I have a recliner. I can sit up or recline (and I have my heating pad). I cannot lie around ... just too painful. My house is a mess but I cannot do much and I sure can't afford help. Yeah, I think most of us feel useless and miserable and wonder "WHY ME"?

    yea.Sometimes I go back and forth from my bed to the recliner. Sometimes the recliner is actually a bit more cusion than the bed. I am 29 and I just want to go and be able to do things. I'm too young to feel so bad. I just get frustrated sometimes. Guess I'm just VENTING!!!! Don't mean to sound selfish or anything. Just frustrated with this dd.

    I hear you!!! I know how you feel. The weather is so beautiful here, in East Texas and I see so many people out fishing and gardening and planting flowers, and it is so depressing to watch and not feel like participating.

    Glad that you were able to enjoy a big part of your life before you became ill. Aerobic exercise is good for everyone I guess, but when you have no energy and hurt, exercise is the last thing that I'm gonna spend my good moments on. You are able to do now in your sixties about what I'm able to do now in my twenties. Thanks for your thoughtfulness and advice. Take care.


    Yes. You are right, it could be worse!!! But it is pretty rough right now.

    Hey there. So sorry that you have all those digestive problems on top of this dd. You are a lot worse than I. I agree, it's no fun. Jaminhealth mentioned that it could be worse. She is right. I don't know how you feel with the digestive problems, but I do know it feels to lay down more than you'd like too. HUGS!!!!

    I so feel your anguish. I'm there a lot of the time too. Try to think of resting and sleeping like medicine. Every minute that you rest you are helping your body. I know that seems silly but it helps me sometimes to cope. I also know that you can rest until you are blue in the face and not really see a qualitive change in things even over months and years but I know that it is one of the major components of healing.

    Also have you tried betaine. Someone told me about it and it has been awesome. I actually can eat and I don't have nearly the nausia etc. that I used to get.

    What is betaine? What is it used for? Yea. Sometimes I look at rest as my best medicine for my body, it does helps sometimes.

Couch to bed back to couch, yep I'm afraid to say that sounds all to familiar!!!! Thanks for the support. I'm 29 and was dx about 4 yrs. ago.

    Betaine Hydrochloride is a digestive enzyme. I found this one worked for me better than some of the mixed digestive enzymes. The one I take has 100 mg of fenugreek seed and 500 mg of betaine hydrochloride. 2 tablets 3x day with meals.

    You are too young for this suffering sweetie. This is horrid. Nothing wrong with being selfish or venting. I would be in a hot tub if I could afford it. I was looking through the posts and saw where a 12 year old has this. It doesn't discriminate. Hang in there hun.
