Last year in early june i got very ill, spent weeks in hospital and basically, was back on my feet by early september at around 80% of my former self. This year i relapsed at exactly the same time of year, june, and have been stuck in bed ill since. I cant walk around at all really. Im now really worried that i actually wont go into another period of recovery, even at a reduced rate, the way i did last year. Im wondering how may of you have had a similer start to this frustrating and debilitating illness, and id be very interested in your paterns of onset, recovery, relapse etc. Unlike a lot of people ive read about i dont have 'crashes', im either able to function for a prelonged period of time (8 months after the original onset i was able to function) or i relapse like i am now and am too ill to do anything.
