Hi. Am so fed up with lookng dowdy. I dont have energy for make up and fussy clothes etc.   i love to look and feel girly but i just dont  have energy to do ig. It may give me a lift if i could manage it. 

Anyone else feel like this?

    Girly dressing up aside, i've had to re-structure my entire life because of CFS, i can no longer do the things i used to, no gym, no swimming, no running. The energy is just not there. I see CFS as a temporary affliction, the length of time for people to improve is anyones guess but it helps me stay positive to know people recover. Days can be so boring, the routine is mind numbing at times but as long as i feel stable i focus onb progress.

      The non existant energy i dont have is used on children. My pride and joy. Just feel trampy. I hope you are right and there is an end  well wishes

    Yes I feel the same way. I cant even get out of the house, no motivation.

    Have terminal illness and other health issues.

    It would give you a lift, pamper yourself for a day, have a duvet day. X

    Sounds more like you're too worn out to do some of the things you want to do because you do have an interest in yourself. Maybe you could try to set aside some time and energy each week to do things like this? It can be hard though, and you might want/need to do other things instead. You should remember that your pleasure is important.

      Think i need a good kick up the backside!! To tired for that either ....

      Sounds to me like you are being unfair on yourself. I'm sure you wouldn't be so mean to someone else who was feeling ill. You've got no reason to beat yourself up imo.

    Hi glad its not just me, tiredness and lethargy seems to be the normal daily routine, willing the little energy for essentials, keeping myself pets and home cared for and cleanish with minimul effort taken, still an achievement be it a small one, also  meaning l wear outfits l wouldnt have before, just pull it on for comfort and ease, quick hair comb,  feeling a slob at times, then going to supermarket when essential major battle of will getting there and endurance getting the trolley round, but the trolley an essential also , holds me up, hoping no one l know see,s me, but the excitement today a call from an old friend, such are my days. Glad for me pets and computer, my kids in their 30s and own homes. Its boring and frustrating routine, but also endure believing it will improve, live in hope, as we do.
