Hi everyone, This is the first time I have posted here but it seems like a really wonderful group of people and place for support. I have FMS/CFS. I was dx'd in 1997 but have been sick since 1988. My daughter who is 11 was also dx'd a year ago with FMS. She has been ill most of her life with one thing or another. I am sure you can imagine there are many challenges we face everyday (just as all of you do!), but the most pressing one at the moment is school. We homeschool our children due in great part to my daughter's illness. She can not handle traditional school, it is just too much for her. Often though, the responsibility of her education is too much for me. Between her bad days and mine every day is a great struggle. I am in a major flare right now and I know that doesn't help matters any. I don't know how I can keep doing this. Thanks for listening.
