Hi Fresh Eyes, Thats a good point, I have noticed that quite alot of my flares start with a burst of emotion. There are so many factors to take in and as time is passing with cfs I am better able to accept the symptoms because I have some pretty good justification for them which removes the extra stress of thinking why. What still amazes me though is every time the emotional or the physical symptoms hit me I cant believe just how bad they make me feel. Even if I only had a 2 minute break before the next wave I still get amazed. How can anyone ever understand what its like to live with cfs when I forget whats its like after 2 minutes.
