Diane's post about 'needing a vacation' made me think about how CFS/FM folks would probably take a vacation. REAL VACATIONS Versus CFS/FM VACATIONS A Trip to the Mountains - Climbing the stairs twice, in one day. A Day at the Beach - Working in your garden and taking a shower. A Long Ocean Voyage - Soaking in a hot tub and not being able to climb out. Sight-Seeing - Discovering all the stuff that's been hidden under layers of house dust. Visiting With Relatives - Going on Face Book. Amusement Park Rides - Spinning in your wheelchair. Visiting Disney World - Watching an old Mickey Mouse cartoon. Souvenir Shopping - Ordering your meds online. Dining Out - Having lunch on the deck.
