Hi Mandy and welcome to our group. Where are you on the peri/meno journey? Considering your age it is possible that there could be a connection as some women get these same symptoms as they travel through perimenopause and through to menopause. I've met a few women who were pretty much housebound until three or four years post menopause.Hi all, I have recently been diagnosed with this almost unbearable condition M E. I have never joined a forum before but I am hoping I might get some help from it?
I have been suffering terribly since May 2014. Everyday I have felt I'll somedays worse rpthan others. It's hard to believe its not something life threatening I get it that severely. I am 58 and feel 90
What gets to me more than anything is the response of some people when you inform them that M E is what I have. Comments like its all in my head. People who suffer this illness know how debilatating it is? I can't describe my symptoms as I have never in my life experienced anything like this. I was so fit and healthy. I don't smoke or hardly drink and I eat well. It's just not fair! Later today I will have to take my 3 year old Grandson to the park but I know that after pushing him for the afternoon I wont be able to get out of my bed the next day. I would just like to chat with people who are suffering like me and that I am not on my own. Help!!
