I was diagnosed with chronic fatigue/ME almost a year ago now after a bad glandular fever virus in 2014! Before I got ill I would work a 40+ hour week as a nursery nurse but ever since I've had glandular fever and now chronic fatigue it's all gone down hill.
I had a op 7 weeks ago to remove a cyst on my ovary that was leaking around my body causing me to be really sick, before this I was managing to work 25 hours a week as a nursery nurse but having quite a lot of time off due to my chronic fatigue and it was getting worse.
However since my op I've just gone downhill, I am exhausted all the time, sore throat, pains all over my body, dizziness, bowel issues (being tested for chromes or celiac atm) I tried to go back to work last week doing 2 hours a day to start but I couldn't manage it I feel so down and useless about my life, I'm only 22 and live with my partner who works so hard! I really don't want to give up work but I can't see myself being able to return anytime soon! I can't afford to not have any money coming in as my partner is a trainee gas engener and we privately rent ect, any ideas on what I should or could do? Has anyone been in this situation before?
