My name is Katie and I'm 18 years old, I got diagnosed with CFS when I turned 13, and I've been struggling ever since, as I'm sure anyone with this terrible illness does.
I was wondering if any of you had any tips on getting better? I have tried over & over again to do what the doctors have told me - Eat better & do Graded exercise therapy. This never helps me. I don't know if I've not stuck to it long enough or if there are other ways to get better? I just end up in the same cycle - I try my hardest to do exactly what the doctor advises, it doesn't work & makes me sicker, I then give up and get depressed over the whole thing, I get motivated to get better eventually & then rinse and repeat.
I'd love to know what has helped you improve/get better?
The other thing I wanted to ask other people in the same situation is how have you found ways to learn whilst being sick? I've wanted to be a counsellor or a professional in the psychology world ever since I was small. Obviously though, since I got sick before I even managed my GCSEs my hope of ever getting there has deteriorated. I did do 4 GCSEs from home but this made me very ill and I've been almost traumatised ever since especially because of the rushed nature, pressure and time constraint involved with normal learning.
Are there any sites online in which you can earn proper qualifications without too much pressure/time constraint? I think this would be ideal for me to get re introduced into learning and hopefully 1 day where I always wanted to be as a kid.
Looking forward to your replies and let me know if I can help any of you guys with anything
