Hi, I am new to the board so just wanted to throw a question out.
I was diagnosed with CFS about 4 years ago but my doc kind of said it like this, "Well your tired all the time, we've done all the tests (blood work, stress test, ultrasounds etc...) so we are just going to call this Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Basically what that means is I don't know what is wrong with you and your really tired" ... he gave me no hope, no regime to follow, no vitamins to take, NOTHING! So, I have lived with this for quite a while but have done nothing to really address the problem. Now, I have kind of come to the end of my rope.
I am a mother of five and a student. I am EXHAUSTED ALL THE TIME. I wake up tired and by 2 pm (just about the time all the chicks come home to roost)I am so exhausted I can barely function. It is that bone deep tired that is impossible to shake off or cure with a ten minute nap(or a six hour nap for that matter).
I am to the point that I am barely functioning as a mom and wife. I hardly ever make us a sit down with the family kind of dinner anymore, the housework is suffering, relationships are suffering and I am just scared.
Soooo, any suggestions? Herbs? Vitamins? Excercises?Meditation?Affirmations? Anything that has helped you or you think might help me??? I do not want to live like this another day!
I welcome your suggestion! Thank you!!!
