HI everyone sorry not been in touch for a while but been very ill, 3 different viruses 1 after the other so i am really low :cry: at the minute. I am really struggling with fainting (blacking out) whatever you want to call it. Just wondered how many of you suffer with this and if yiou have any advice :?: Cant seem to shake anything off at the minute and really achey all the time and sun doesnt help me at all just makes me so hot i find it unbearable (a previous sun worshiper) and often faint. Wish someone could find a cure or even cause I am fed up with having to explain myself to narrow minded people who think that if you get out of the house everything will get better. I cant even get out of bed most days.

Take care everyone tomorrow is another day

    Hi there Nix

    Sorry you are so poorly - as Alicia says, wish we could make things a bit easier for you - but at least we understand completely. This really is a horrible illness and it sounds as if you are suffering badly at the moment.

    I feel quite faint at times, and it's really quite scary and does little for ones confidence:wah: The minute I start feeling all funny, I contract my calf muscles as quickly as I can (exhausting, I know) and this sends blood quickly to the brain and hopefully stops the actual faint. (Apparently this is what the Queen does when she has to stand for a long time - so at least we are in good company! :smiley: ).

    I tried to do a bit of gardening this afternoon, but very quickly felt really unwell - giddy, wonky and achey - and yet I looked fine. It just makes me feel like a lazy slob - and then I start feeling all sorry for myself. :cry:

    Take care and keep in touch if you can. At least we can all support each other.

    Oh that's good Nix - you must have a lovely hubbie. :magic: Mine bought one for me too, and it has been my lifeline.

    Hope to hear from you again soon.

    I am posting from my friend's laptop at the moment and getting in a bit of a muddle. My poor old tired ME brain cannot get to grips with not having a mouse.

    It is a little bit like trying to drive an automatic car when you are used to a manual.

    However, it will be really nice to see you more often Nix :D
