Hi! I'm wondering what people's opinion is on whether CFS/ME is progressive. I have read that it is not. I have also read acounts of people recovering. However, I have had it for at least eight to ten years. I have made major, major lifestyle changes,. I eat healthily, don't drink or smoke. I spend 12 hours/night in bed. I take meds. I take supplements. I meditate. I get massages. I have done so much mind-body work with journaling etc that I feel like a qualified therapist! I've eliminated just about every energetic and social thing from my life. I have a part-time job at home only. I've let my career go. I keep my expenses low. I keep stress very low. I have a supportive family. Yet...I still crash. I am not recovered. Which brings me back to the question -- do you all feel this illness is progressive, stays the same no matter what you do, or that you can actually recover??? All thoughts appreciated!
