Hi, I have had ME for 7 years since getting rubella vaccine 3 days after the birth of my son. Its been like a nightmare but I know I'm not as bad as a lot of people. However, I've gone into a terrible flare up recently and in addition have become allergic to practically everything, especially medication and chemicals generally. i've read that dealing with allergies is one way of helping ME. Has anyone tried it. I know what I'm allergic to and avoid as much of the difficulties as I can but basically I'm whacked and very, very down. Please let me know if you have any solutions. Also, my poor 7 year old is really reacting badly to me not being well and is developing all sorts of nervous behaviours. I feel so guilty about this.
