    Hi all,

    Ive been stuck basically inside for a few weeks now with chronic fatigue. I know that this is a flare up and would really just like to read some positive stories of people who have/had cfs and how it can pass. Just need some hope right now :(

    I try to stay as positive as possible. I do get myself out for walks or jogs when I can which always helps.

    Please share your stories with me for hope that this gets better. Anything is appreciated, thank you.

    Hi soph33,

    Thank you for your post. I was diagnosed with CFS many years back and then told it was a misdiagnosis and then a diagnosis and a misdiagnosis... which is quite a long story and to be honest I'm still not sure, but I guess there's a part of me that can possibly relate to what you're experiencing!

    It's really wonderful that you're able to leave the house for jogs and walks - some people don't even leave the house for fear of aggravating their symptoms. But leaving the house and 'graded exercise' (slow but steady) does help.

    One resource that you might like to check out is Emerge Australia - they have some great resources there - https://emerge.org.au

    You can also read our other post on CFS here, and even the posts that Chris suggests in the post underneath it - https://www.beyondblue.org.au/get-support/online-forums/depression/any-fellow-cfs-(chronic-fatigue-syndrome)-sufferers

    Hope you're able to find some support here
