Hi, I am new to the board but have been a regular visitor for the last 2 years. Without knowing it you guys have been a great help and support. To know there are others who understand what we go through is very reassuring. I am 44yr old and a mother of 4 youngest is 13 oldest is 18 my husband and family are very understanding now that know more about cfs. Have had it for the last 7 years and I am lucky to be able to manage quite well. I work full time as my husband does not and he takes care of everything at home. Reading about your up and downs means I have people that I can relate to. I have alway been frightened to speak to you as I am not very good with computers. But here I am.
