I have been feeling really bad since last Monday and I can’t seem to shake it. I normally have headaches that are pretty bad but for the last week they have been excruciating. My pain pills aren’t doing the trick and the only relief I get is by keeping my eyes closed and lying down without any noise or interruptions. Even the light from the computer screen makes my head pound and I feel as though I am going to throw up.
With Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, you never know from day to day or week to week how severe your symptoms may be. I feel so unmotivated right now and very uninspired and I hate feeling that way. I keep sleeping hoping that when I wake up I will feel better but so far that hasn’t worked.
What bothers me the most is how my illness affects my family, especially my son. It’s hard for him to understand that there are days when I just can’t function and that I can’t play, sing and have fun with him like we do when I am feeling somewhat normal.
We deal, though. We always manage to somehow and we make it through!
