In 2009 I got diagnosed with glandular fever, since then I have battled years of really poor health, recurrent infections and extreme tiredness which was diagnosed as chronic fatigue, alongside hypothyroidism, anaemia and endometriosis. Along with poor health I started my career as a registered nurse at the same time I fell ill and as an A personality type I pushed myself for years to excel and get to the top, until I got my dream job in a very busy intensive care unit. After years of shift work, long 12 hour shifts, night shifts almost weekly, the stress along with trying to keep fighting the chronic fatigue I reluctantly resigned from my job in January this year. I had another really bad relapse of my chronic fatigue which left me bed ridden for weeks on end and would get dizzy, breathless and heart palpitations every time I tried to get up, all my body wanted to do was sleep and my whole body ached. I had the surgery for endometriosis 3 weeks ago now- as my gynaecologist felt the severtiy of this condition and the stress it was putting on my body every month was worsening my chronic fatigue. I feel like I am trapped in my body and this illness has robbed me of my health but also my career, my purpose in life, my fitness, my hobbies, my social life, putting a strain on my relationships, my fincial situation, my hapiness. I have been trying desperately to keep positve and focus on small steps at a time, but after years of battling this it really is taking it's toll on my body both physically and mentally. Does anyone have any advice on how to get through this illness? Any recomendations will be appreciated. Thanks kindly

I know she takes 5000mcg Methylcobalmin B12, extra folate and dose detox for mercury issues, she convinced her major issue is mercury.
Wish there were some "easier" answers but everyone I know with this syndrome suffer too much....I know she takes desiccated thyroid support as do I.I need to go to bed so will talk more later..
Honestly, what has helped me every now and then is a good cry. It builds up, thinking about all of the things I used to be able to do. All the friends I miss and thigns I could/would be doing if I weren't bed ridden. But then I just unleash the floodgates and cry and yell and tell my health exactly how I feel about it at the moment. Then I find the motivation to keep moving towards wellness and the life I used to have (and will have again one day).
Keep going, lady. You will be well one day.
