Re: New here.
I have heard of this being one of the causes of CFS. Did your doctor put you on an anti-viral? After being fatigued that long, you might ask about giving that a try. It might help. I can't trace my fatigue to anything specific, but it started with me off and on and then became daily. Your immune system acting up can make you extremely exhausted. Why would you want to accept this as a mental thing? I do have major depressive illness and generalized anxiety disorder, ADD, I'd be hyperactive if it weren't for the fatigue, but I would never want to think it's mental and just accept it as something I cannot get help with. Your tired for a reason, never think that is mental, or at least not all in your head. You might look into a fatigue specialist if your doctor doesn't take it seriously. Someone that deals with immunosupressive diseases.
