This is the personal story of CFIDS sufferer Kristy Burton-Vunesky:
A little over a year ago I was an active, driven and successful woman. I was a single parent with two children, a full-time college professor and a full-time doctoral student with many hobbies. I exercised nearly every day; walking, running, strength training, yoga, Pilates and various dance classes kept me active and in shape. My fiance and I loved to hike and bike, and our family would go camping and canoeing every summer. I loved the outdoors and spent as much time outside as possible. When I wasn’t outside I was seeing a play at a local theater, going to the symphony or opera, or going to the movies, art shows, craft fairs or whatever struck my fancy. I never sat still. I was always on the move. That all changed drastically in March of 2006.”
