I'm wondering if you've had a time, or are during a time, when you didn't drive b/c of ME/CFS? If so, I'm wondering why. I've had ME/CFS for 21 yrs. Once during my 9th yr., I had to pull off the road b/c my memory went blank. Couldn't remember where I was, where I was going. Lasted about 5 mins. I did a lot of deep breathing to chill the anxiety. Slowly, I regained my memory, realized where I was. Then, slowly, thoughts entered on where I was headed. Even slower, but finally the thoughts came on how to get where I was going. It was scary. Not as scary as if it were to happen today b/c I know all the more how my memory and brain get so mixed up. In the beginning when I was sick and a dr. told me I had to lay in bed for about 4-6 wks. until my thyroid kicked back in w/ the thyroid med. he gave me, I didn't have 21 yrs. of experience to know I'd never really 'recover' so those 6 wks. were not depressing. I thought I'd recover and that'd be the end of my troubles. Today, knowing more causes me not to be alarmed but it also carries a sadness knowing it'll take a miracle for me to have most of my life returned. Last year, I was in such a fog for about 3 mos. that I didn't drive. Today, when I'm tired, I don't drive & hardly get out of bed; I'm don't get alarmed but I'm also not thrilled. Have there been, or are there, stints where you can't drive?
