This latest CFS flare I’m having has been lasting for quite some time. There are times when I wonder if I am having a flare from the ME/CFS or I wonder if something else is going on. There are always a few sure signs that a CFS flare is in full swing. I will notice that my breathing changes and that I get out of breath a lot quicker than I normally do. I am also having trouble with having that feeling where I don’t feel as though my lungs are getting enough oxygen when I breathe. I am also having that terrible feeling where I want to sleep so desperately but I can’t sleep. It is a much stronger feeling to sleep than what I normally feel.
I have not been able to do much of anything and the television is starting to get boring. I want to do stuff but when I try I end up back in bed or on the couch. I thought on Sunday I was doing better because I felt pretty good when I woke up. But after we were at church a while I started to feel very bad again and I couldn’t even hold my head up I was so exhausted. Do you ever notice how heavy your head is when you are having a flare? That sounds weird but I will get to where I can’t even hold up my head – I have to rest it on something.
Every night I pray that tomorrow will be a better day. Here’s to another tomorrow!
