That's so encouraging Justy. I gave up meditation because of back pain and I want to give it a go again. I want to point out that if you look at the symptoms of anxiety and CFS there is some overlap, of course, just as there is with depression - but there is alot that is different. I don't have 'dread', for instance, and nowhere either in depression or anxiety is post-exertional malaise ever mentioned. People with both can use exercise to help them with their problems - and I mean real exercise! The problem for them, I guess, is that they see no point in it. Something is driving the system for people who are in the wired and tired subset and I think many can blunt that to some extent. It may not leave them well if you but when you are ill any increased functionality is very welcome; hence your appreciation of being able to attend events at your kids school - an everyday occurrence for almost anyone else but a significant event for you.
