Can I get your opinions on taking a road trip with this disease? I think I want to drive to California to see an ME/CFS expert doctor. Dr. Kogelnik is about 13 hours away and Dr. Chia (my preference) is about 17 hours away. My husband and I are thinking (if I can get an appt) of renting an RV (we have dogs). In the old days, I could drive forever (I drove myself from Madison, WI to New Orleans, only stopping for gas! Those were the days ), but, now, my husband drives and I don't do well with pot holes and bumpy roads ~ mostly because of spine pain, chronic headaches and a neck injury. My fear is getting worse from biting off more than I can chew (Laura Hillenbrand's relapse story haunts me). With an RV and a bed I can lie on, will I be able to drive 7+ hours a day (including rest breaks)? Also, if I wanted to see a bit of California (ie: take the coast road, which is much longer, but might be heaven to someone who has been cooped up in the house for a year), am I insane to think I could be on the road for 9 or 10 days?? (money allowing) I know you can't answer for me specifically, I'm just looking for opinions. Thank you!
