I'm a single mom to two boys aged 4 and 2. My four year old has a severe disability called Leigh's disease. I do get nursing respite to help me with him, maybe if I didn't have CFS it would even things out, I don't know. I just feel that my kids are suffering because of my illness and I don't know what to do. I've been through "official" diagnosis and a joke of a treatment (antidepressants). I've been referred as far as my doctor will send me, which didn't get me anywhere. I'm too tired to go see my doctor is what it comes down to! How do I find help if I can't get out of the house!? My son needs a nurse with him for me to be able to go out...and I need to be up to it when the nurse is available. Things are just getting worse and worse. The harder I push, the harder I fall, the worse is is to climb up again. I think I might be dealing with some sneaky virus too, dragging my immune system along, for about 2 months now, I don't know how to catch up. I guess I just needed to vent...I don't expect anyone to have answers for my, I'm just so tired, sick of it all!
