    My Daughter Too

    My daughter found out a month ago that she also has CFS. This is of no surprise to me at all. I knew since she was a few months old. I had a feeling. She was pale and slept so much and wanted to sleep. The throat infections and yeast infections. The look of her. So much like me...

    "I'm Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired"

    Damn That Cfs!

    I do not like to complain, but when the flare of fibro and CFS get to a point - I want to scream and shout - in silence because it takes to much energy to do it out loud for real. I was going to meet with a support group with others' like me who have these two health issues and...
