Hi I only joined up yesterday. I have struggled with CFS and Fibromyalgia for 9 yrs now, after a bout of Glandualar Fever. I had to give up work, about 4 yrs ago, which was a great loss to my self-esteem and finances. I have tried to do various courses of study to improve my skills just in case I get well enough to go back to work. I am blessed to get the disability, but they are getting much harder here to let you stay on it. I have tried to have a relationship, but my health always makes that impossible. I struggle to even go out once a week to do shopping, and after that Im exhausted for days. I live alone and praise the Lord my children are adults and independant. I get so lonely, becuase this condition makes it hard to have friends or a social life..it feels like everything has been taken away...I am down today, fed up, but most of the time, I am brave..any suggestions. Maybe just hearing other relating to me, because I think there is something wrong with me to feel so crap today..

Has anyone heard from Darla recently? I know she was frustrated by the changes to this website.

Maybe I used the wrong email address. I will try again.Hope all my friends here are having a good start to the new year.
