ME/CFS and the Magic of the Canine Factor
There's been plenty of research indicating that having pets is good for your health. I never really noticed any particular benefits to having cats, though that may have had more to do with my cats. They've been fairly indifferent to my presence and we've shared a live-and-let-live...

    My HR feels 10-20 too high even just sitting up at home. It feels like my heart's working too hard on bad days.

    I had borderline low BP most of my adult life, including the early years of ME/CFS. Then somewhere in the past few years my BP started creeping up to high normal. This is about the same time the tachy started giving me real problems. I don't know if this is a progression of the illness thing, a result of clearing up 5 chronic infections, deconditioning from not being to be active when ill... or something else entirely. Struck me as odd, though, that I went from being lowish BP to highish BP over the course of this illness.
