    totally ...i have a very short fuse. i cant handle standing in line i get so impatient and want every body to 'hurry up' . i think its mainly because we're feeling so ill.... can barely stand without feel faint and ill.

    Oh yes, my darling husband regularly tells me I'm "a grumpy f...ker" and he is completely right because I am....a lot of the time. Good job he laughs it off and and gives me a cuddle or we'd be divorced by now.

    Hi Carly.

    Yes it is all too common im afraid. I just keep myself out of the way for days on end until i am ready to socialize again.

    Hi carlyas,

    Same for me. I am less patient the more tired I am.

    wow, i never put my short temper with cfs. I get frustrated and if im in a busy or noisy room i have to leave, that can even be with my family (mum,dad,sister) or just my boyfriend.

    But now i think of it i do get impatient very easily and grouchy and stupid little things like traffic or a queue.

    Thanks for this post carlyas :0)

    Yes definitely ! I'm quite a patient and understanding person by nature but I've become very different over the years because of this illness.

    I have to try so hard to cope with people. Most of the time I wish I could live in the middle of nowhere so I don't have to talk to anyone.
