I have suffered from ME for 11 years. I was at my worst 5 years ago when i became bed ridden for 9 months. I have felt that my health has been going down, getting worse for the last year. However, the little breaks of feeling normal kept me going through the ruff days or times. Now the last week i been in hell with it. I wake up fatigues and light headed and have it all day. I not able to function in any way. My family keep saying, what brought this on. I keep telling them i dont know, i done or took nothing differant. Im struggling, i cant go back to being bed ridden again, it will kill me. I dont know what to do, please help!!! Sharina PS: Do you know if taking the same anti-depressant for long period like 5 years can stop working? I take Dosulepin 150mg a night.
