Hi All, I'm new to this board. I have slid back into a terrible fatigue place. Sleeping 10 - 14 hours a day & tired all the time. I have a difficult time getting out of bed in the morning & feel my best at midnight. I have just had blood work done & am hoping there is something found that can be helped. I've been off work for 15 years & had made a reasonable life for my self. I was exercising & going to a pool regularily. I quit smoking in '90. Lost over 50 lbs in '96. Now I am losing the battle. I haven't been able to exercise in 2 months & have put a few lbs back on. I don't have the energy to eat yet much & I'm gaining weight. I have CFIDS & FMS. I have been slipping for the past 2 years & have ended up in the horrible place. I know the things I need to do to get back on track but I don't have the energy. I live in Ontario, Canada & there are no specialists in my area. I'm very frustrated & am losing hope. I'm crying as I type this note. I am so fed up with this DD. I don't know what to do other then listen to my body & sleep or rest. I'm told that this will pass but it has been so long. Thanks for listening.
