I was recently diagnosed with CFS/Addrenall/Epstien Barr Virus, etc.
I remember as a child I was also tired and lagging, and I was ALWAYS the one who got sick. Every month I was sick, mainly with fevers, very bad sore throat and major fatigue. It all started around the time I had mono when I was about 16, and around the time when I got a severe sunburn and ever since then, when I get stressed I break out with cold sores and very swollen glands, achy and very tired. I am not sure if these are all related, my DR really didn't give me a straight answer. He wants to do numerous tests on me but I do not have any insurance. All of this got worse after I had a hysterectomy last July. I have been to many doctors and have been on way to many antibiotics. I finally went to a Pain Management doctor and he is wonderful! He started me on testosterone, progesterone and estrogen, a natural cream where they are all in one. I also take Ultram maybe 4-6 a day depending on how I am feeling. Tonight he started me on Colostrum. He is going to put me on temp. disability until I can file for S.S. This just makes me sick, all I want to do is go back to work, but ever since my surgery I have not been able to. I do not want to feel handicapped
I seem to have had this most of my life, but does it ever go away or will it get better eventually? My boyfriend of 3 years has no idea of what I go thru, I know if I told him he would just roll his eyes and rant and rave, he does not believe in this kind of stuff, and he also does not like my doctor, there are rumors around town that he over medicates people. So I feel like I am leading a double life, I pretend to him that I am looking for work, and on really bad days I tell him I am busy and cannot get together. Sometimes I have to fake it when I am around him and it's getting harder and harder. I will be coming here often for support and support others in anyway that I can. So, again hello everyone, and thanks for letting me vent, feels good to finally get all of this out. LOL
