After being ill with Glandular Fever and failing to recover after nine months, my doctor diagnosed me with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I have been told to contact the Irish CFS/ME association to see a specialist. I am absolutely devastated. I don't know how I am supposed to live the rest of my life like this. Can anyone who has lived with this illness longer give me any practical advice? I am not prepared for being disabled aged twenty three. Am I eventually going to end up bed bound with this illness?
