I want to say a big thank-you to all of your compliments of my recent fo’s and wips. I paologise for mnot e-mailing you all in person but life is not good at the moment. The christmas chest infection, although now gone, has left my immune system in a real state. My ME has relapse to the worst it has been since diagnosis.

I can cope with the aches & pains, I can cope with sore throat and sore glands and I can cope with the constant fatigue but only when they occur on their own (as they have been for the past year or so) what I can’t deal with is all these symptoms at the same time.

Blogging and knitting may be scarce over the next few weeks as I am desperately trying to get back ‘normal’ in time for uni at the beginning of Feb.  I have an exam on Monday but there is no way I will be able to make it, I’ve been sleeping 12-15 hours a day of late (straight through with no waking) so haven’t even picked up a book. Univetsity are fine and I have a note from my GP so as I can retake in April. As well as the physical aspects of this relapse I am having psycholigical issues – it is just so frustrating!!! I was doing so well, I was up to date with my work at uni and now I am falling behind. It has all been ok’d with uni but just annoying for me. I don’t want the ME to start up my depression but not being able to to the things I want (and need) to do just gets to you.

I’m off back to bed.

  1. Take the time to get the rest you need. I’ll be hoping for your swift return to feeling yourself.

  2. Oh hun! Huge but tres gentle hugs for you I agree with Madge – it will all still be here when you get better. However, I dont think that will help much as I understand your frustration and worry that the depression will come back. You know where I am if you need to chat. Am thinking of you. *hugs*

  3. I really feel for you. I’ll simply echo what everyone else has said.
    Thinking of you and hoping that taking the time to rest will do the trick.
