Most of the posts seem to come from young people or those certainly not much past middle age. I’m interested in hearing from other senior PWCs who may be lurking about and how they handle their CFS and related lifestyle changes in seriously getting older with a nebulous illness. How do you handle your CFS concerns? Do you get out much or are you otherwise housebound and do you feel severely isolated? How about social involvement like work and friends; are they gone? Are you concerned about life moving away too fast, maybe out of control? Do you have sleep problems and or anxiety and depression? How about exercise or are you out of shape and frustrated due to CFS and PEM Restraints? There are other similar issues which seem to pile on now more than in any earlier years. Personally, I’ve been involved in all of the above after ~30 years with this illness. I felt like this time of life, the 70’s was like a major life phase change, e.g. a milestone similar to reaching age 21 or age 50, only let down because of the demands of this illness. Lots of things that I once took for granted are areas of more concern and uncertainty - all enmeshed with the troubles caused by CFS. What’s to be of the future?
