    Hey ya'll! My name is Christin, I'm 19 years old and I've had CFS since I was about 16/17 years old. It's been a struggle to deal with that's for sure...there's definitely ups and down seems like more so down times then up.

    The good thing though is that I found something to get myself into to kind of somewhat take my mind off of CFS as much as possible, I sell mark makeup, I'm a mark representative and I love it so far.

    If you want to check it out then here are some links

    Glad you're here. You won't find nicer and more helpful people anywhere. Really a caring bunch!

    My daughter is 19 also, and has CFS. She goes to college and works, so she wears herself out constantly.

    Take care and remember to rest...

    Hi Christin. Welcome to our cozy family here, although, I'm sorry we are meeting you under these conditions. It's difficult for anyone struggling with this disease, but when you are so young it makes it even harder. I'm 24 and fell ill after having mono when I was 15. I have CFS/ME also, and it's a constant roller coaster ride. Some days are better than others. But, I think I'm starting to get the hang of it. I do tend to overdo it quite a bit, but I definitely try to carry on my life like this disease isn't there. And that's when I get into trouble.

    It's great that you have something that you enjoy to help take your mind off of your disease. I'm a nursing student, married and have a 5-year old son. So, between school, my husband, and my son, it helps to keep me sane.

    Gentle healing hugs,
    Kim
