    I saw a commercial on television the other day for feline leukemia awareness week. Seriously. Let's see....when was the last time I saw an advertisement for ME/CFS Awareness Week? Like....never! And who, besides those who have ME/CFS, is aware there IS a ME/CFS Awareness Week? Well, after all, people with ME/CFS (PWME) aren't able to do a lot of advocating for ME/CFS awareness...we need...

    ....and the responses we restrain. "GET SOME REST". This depends on your definition of "rest" and the timing of the comment. > If in the midst of a crash...when we are debating if risking a shower today is worth it...or even possible...and, though we are forced into a horizontal existence, rest alludes us...hearing "Get some rest" tells us those who say it just don't get it. So...we...

    how helpful it is to read what we...pwcs...write about how we cope with this illness. but there seems to be an extra measure of encouragement when a friend without me/cfs seeks to understand. i pray this psalm, written by my friend after reading my last blog entry, will bless and encourage you as much as it has (and will) me. BONE CRUSHER (A little psalm for you) As I lay still my body...

    and not just lazy...depressed...mental. where does your mind go when you're knocked down? to... what others may be thinking? if you got yourself into this state? what's the point of ever doing anything if i have to pay with days, a week, a month, or longer in bed? how do i pace when at an event that lasts all day? if i just push myself...couldn't i get over this? maybe i just want...

    my computer was infected at least 3 years ago. i gave it to my i.t. son-in-law who returned it after 3 months completely cleaned out. i opted out of facebook...was careful about surfing the net...didn't let anyone else take control of it. but for all my carefulness...there it was again...a virus. i wouldn't impose upon my son-in-law to try to fix it again. the guy at staples said it is...

    it seems so long inbetween times there is any real news about this hideous disease...i go long periods without checking on the current communication of the community. but i have never lost my gratitude for Cort who started this great forum and the Pheonix Rising website. for me, he provides the most complete, balanced, informative, easy-to-access updates and insights of any website, and the...

    from a reply to tee... God help me, i guess im just too concerned about what people think who dont really know me when one of the first things they learn is that i have what im afraid they may think is chronic laziness!! myalgic encephalomyelitis sounds so much more like a real, scientific, though mysterious, illness...on this side of the pond, at least. you know, as in a casual...

    lately i've been wondering if i have alzheimer's. not to take away from those who have this horrendously debilitating illness. but...i'm wondering, do you ever wonder this... when you can't remember ANYone's name?... when you stop remembering how to spell?... when you don't remember what day of the week it is, much less the date?... when you never remember more than one thing on your...

    If I'm going to lament and complain here...then I also need to express my gratitude to God. In the last week I have experienced great relief from pain and fatigue. I am grateful for the medications available, for a wise physician who realizes when they need to be changed, and for those who develop therapies that help. I'm thankful for the energy to help my eight-month pregnant daughter get...

    okay, there. i said it. my face is burning. my head is exploding. my feet are freezing. and everything in-between hurts. it's not the first day i've felt this way. it certainly will not be the last. i'm not saying i am any worse than anyone else, nor that i'm not far better off than many. but i just needed to say it to others who totally get it. not that Jesus doesn't get it, nor...

    sometimes i feel like my life is a living death... stuck between two worlds...the world of the living and the world of the extremely ill. i am grateful there are "good" days, i.e., when i can go out and be with friends or spend time with family, even take care of a grandchild. then there are the days of complete collapse, when i can't get out of bed, feel my bones are crushing one another, pain...

    I am so incredibly grateful for my physician. She is an internist and not a CFS specialist, according to her thinking, anyway. But I have found that everything she has recommended and prescribed has turned out to be along the lines with CFS "experts". She is protectively cautious, yet always seems to be looking for what can help me. She referred me to the strain counterstrain physical therapy...

    My favorite place to be is in my pool...which is where I feel the best! It's the best place to visit with a friend or read a book. There I exercise by swimming and stretching without stress on my body. It cools down my furnace body. And best of all, it provides alone time for thinking and praying. My pool is a gift from God that I don't take for granted. My prayer for my fellow CFS...
