I'm trying not to give up,but after searching so much about CFS it seems that most people remain ill for their whole life.Is that true?What is the percentage of people who improve and even recover?I'm new to this illness(only 4 months) and I'm willing to try everything,but not knowing what's making me ill or how long i'll be ill drives me crazy. Which of you have improved and how much? What's your CFS story(symptoms,onset,duration,severity etc)? What things have you tried and of those things what made you better? My activity level is 3-5..I decided not to aim for recovery right now and start by trying to improve first.I think that if I reached 7 in activity level I'll start to feel alive again.Those of you who have done that,make some suggestions I'll be very thankful.
