Hi there! I have had Chronic Fatigue now for over 14 years, I was 49. I was diagnosed just after I had my thyroid removed. I have had all the tests you can possibly think of and I've had all the usual illnesses connected with CFS eg. Glandular fever, continued viruses (I catch absolutely every virus going) Shingles etc etc.
I spend days on end in and out of bed or just sitting in a chair. I rarely have what I call "Good days" but when I do I cherish them. I have tried all the "normal" ways of living ie pacing little excerzing etc etc.
I'm Not and repeat Not depressed but I do wonder how many more years I will have left with this debilitating illness. I am now 63 I love my Husband, my family and my grandchildren are my life but I do often wish that when I go to sleep at night I will sleep for ever.
Reading some of your success stories is heart rendering and I wish you all the success and happiness in your lives.
My question is.... Does having ME/CFS shorten our lives or should we still expect to carry living it to its normal conclusion........... Just wondering
