Re: CFS and air travel
I have cfs and fibro and find air travel very difficult, but I'm not willing to stop living my life completely, so I still do it every so often. I won't lie to you, it's hard. What I do is try to time it so my flight gets to the destination at a time when I can check into my hotel and go straight to bed and rest up. This cuts trips by a day but at least I can regain a tiny bit of energy and enjoy the rest of the trip.
I have a trip planned for the end of this month, my first one in a long time, and I shoudl be excited but instead I'm tired just thinking about it. But I have to force myself to not give up too much of my life, because I'm afraid that will lead to depression which will make the cfs and fibro worse. So far I've found no doctor who knows how to treat me effectively, and I hope someday I will, but till then I have to keep keeping on, as they say. I make concessions, I arrange my days as best I can so I don't overdo it, I have changed my whole life due to this illness. The last thing I want to do is hole myself up inside the house and allow it to take over my existence, even if it extremely hard not to do that.
Good luck, and I hope you are able to rest when you arrive at your destination and then are able to enjoy your trip!
