Cool fellow cfs sufferer

Well hi to you all,
I have been suffering from chronic fatigue since last june when the docs first discovered I had an underactive thyroid.The medication did nothing to cure my over whelming tiredness.
I am now going to lose my job as it was very physical (cook).But I'm staying positive,just about,and continue to do my daily pilates routine to try and keep my muscle tone.I too was pushed onto anti- depressants as I know many of us are,why do they think they are the cure all?
Does any body have trouble with light?I have to wear sun-glasses if it's fairly sunny and get achy, tired eyes.
keep smiling out there ( I know its hard work!!)

Re: fellow cfs sufferer

Welcome. Your positive attitude is an inspiration.
I do have trouble with light. Even when it's overcast I have to wear fairly large sunglasses. I often feel like I'm squinting and then realize my eyes are having trouble because of the light.
