I am 22 years old and was diagnosed in January 2013 with ME/CFS. I have recently started a job this year as a staff nurse and have just had to take 2 months off due to a relapse of my ME. I am concerned about my job stability and recovering from this current lapse. I have returned to work on reduced hours but feel anxious at the prospect of returning full-time. Can anyone who has been through a similar experience please share any ideas about how I can approach this?
Also, I am suffering from severe fibromyalgic pain. I am on Gabapentic 300mg TDS and I am on strong painkillers whenever I can. Has anyone else found anything that has helped them with this symptom? To be honest, I have been pretty much in the dark about this condition since being diagnosed - I do not have a wide knowledge on the condition and would really appreciate people's help, as I am yet to meet someone with ME!
Even if you want to share your story, I would greatly appreciate it - hearing other people's journeys may shed some light on this for me.
Thanks so much and take care,
