    I think most CFS people could tell you that, which is why it's so annoying for the medical community and healthcare providers to be pushing this so hard.

    I was a fairly active person prior to the onset of my symptoms and I still try to be as active as I can when permitted, however I know when my symptoms get bad - that pushing myself will only cause my symptoms to get worse or precipitate a full-on crash.

    Today I'm lucky, I woke up feeling like I actually had slept, my eyes and mouth weren't extremely dry and my stomach did not feel as if it was on fire and pushing me to the brink of vomiting.

    I did some stretching, which I haven't been able to do in at least 10 days, and I plan on going for a walk later on to pick up a few things.

    I don't expect to feel awful by the end of the day, however by the next morning, who knows. I imagine this is pretty common for people with CFS and while trying to be active when you can is a good thing if you can manage, exercise does not have the effect of preventing the onset of symptoms for myself, it is a luxury when I can do so without serious consequences.
