There can be so much negativity surrounding this illness. If you visit Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Symptoms forums I’m sure you’ve read some very sad stories of people suffering with this debilitating illness. Personally, when I was ill, I had to stop visiting those forums as I found them a real downer. Guarding my emotional energy reserves was crucial to remaining positive enough to look for a way to recover.
Let’s face it, when you’re going through your own struggle, battling with the horrible symptoms of this illness, it doesn’t help to read about people who have had the illness for several years, are not coping well at all.
