I've been suffering from CFS for 2 years now and as a result I have developed severe depression amongst other mental disorders. I was at University, but now I am stuck at home because I've had to take time out to recover. My depression got really bad as a result of the CFS, which caused me a lot of stress and as a result made my CFS worse. To the point where I had to be carried back and forth to the toilet because I couldn't walk. Anytime I seem to make any progress now I end up right back at square one again. I used to be a lively, fun-loving person, and I loved having all my friends around me before the CFS. Now....I'm paranoid, constantly scared and timid person. I have panic attacks whenever there's lots of people around me. And my "friends" care so little about me they can't even be bothered to send me the odd text to see how I am. Everything I used to enjoy and love has been taken away from me. I'm a completely different person, who I despise, but can't change! Feel like a 90 year old trapped inside a 19 year old girl's body and I don't know what to do or where to turn!!!
