Hi, I havn't been on the board in a long time as my flare up of ME has been bad. I've had ME for 12 years and it's gradually getting worse. I also have a current reactivation of EBV - my range was supposed to be under 0.8 and it's 7.6! Now I am getting a whole bunch of tests for Multiple sclerosis as I had MRI brain which showed abnormalities so now I have that to worry about. I'm fatigued every day, muscle/joint pain, unrestful sleep, insomnia, lack of concentration, short term memory loss....you name it.....Besides my health issues I've been with my husband (no children) for 12 years and we are having relationship issues and have decided this is the last year we are going to give our marriage a go. On top of that we also have impending financial problems so that's another stress. I originally moved here from UK in 1989 and after going through alcohol addiction and a severe stress for 8 years years I believe all this upset triggered my CFS. As if I'm not at my wits end with all the above and now not know if I also have MS too, I live in Las Vegas and the heat is coming. I lived in Florida 15 years and couldn't tolerate the heat and humidity so though moving to Las Vegas and drier climate would help - boy was I wrong. It's so damn hot here in the summer 100-120 degress, even 99 degrees at night and I just am getting soooo stressed as I know the heat is coming. I think I'm going to blow a fuse with the stress because my symptoms get soo bad and I've absolutely no energy in the heat to do anything. Plus the air conditioning bothers my sinuses so I feel like a prisioner in my own home which adds more stress. We are not in a position to move - my ideal climiate would be in the 50s to 80s and dry, that's as much as I can tolerate but year in and year out i've lived in hot weather now for 20 years and I don't know how I'm going to keep going. I have a 15 history of dysthymia witih major bouts of severe depression and I know it's going to get worse as the summer comes. Do any of you have any advice what I can do to help my situation - I just wish there was a pill and I could take it now and hibernate until September when the heat has gone......I just so stressed and down right know Thanks Diane.
