I've had CFIDS for over 4 years now. I get pretty discouraged sometimtes at not being able to be the kind of mother and wife and community member I'd like to be. On my worst days I sometimes long for someone to talk to who can relate to what I'm going through, but I don't know anyone else who has CFIDS. I live in a pretty small community. I'm getting so tired of having to lie in bed, so I've been surfing the net of late, looking for someone to talk to. Anybody out there?
