Hi, I am a n00b on here. I guess I should say a little about myself, I'm 37, got 4 kids, 2 cats and 1 dog, live with my very supportive partner and have officially been diagnosed since July 2016, but it took around a year and a half to get to that diagnosis.

I have been out of work since I got diagnosed and it sucks big time, I am not sure who I am anymore, or what my function is, but hopefully I will regain that soon.

I don't know what else to say at the moment, so will leave it there.

Hello there and welcome. I did a longer welcome yesterday but one false move on the keyboard and it all ended in a black hole! I will try again....

Good to hear that you have a supportive partner as having 4 children with ME/CFS must be hard going.

Yes, it's hard to try to work once you become ill and mainstream medicine really has no useful answers I have found it best to dig away at alternative approaches as some have helped for me though it can take a trial and error approach to pinpoint what may help you personally. I think we are all different but there are some basics like diet and pacing which are pretty standard for everyone.

Hi, thanks for the welcome  c017

I would have replied earlier but, xmas and illness are not a good mix.

It's funny you mention diet, my partner and I join weightwatchers about 10 weeks ago as we are both a bit portly, and I figured that since I can't exercise like most people that diet is the way to go. Lost a stone so far, which changes me from obese to just plain fat   whoo

More later as my mind has gone blank.

Hi again,

I hope you're over Xmas now, and it's great that you've managed to lose a stone - quite an achievement  thumbsup
