if you can't afford it / don't have a credit / debit card, i'll actually send you a free pdf of said book.
it's poetry, however. you've been warned.
my name's nick. i'm a 31 year old male. i have been experiencing fatigue / exhaustion since i had a bad case of mono when i was a senior in high school, age 17.
as you probably know, various doctors had to do a ton of tests to eliminate everything else before saying i have CFS.
in the past, i've recovered from alcohol addiction, addiction to painkillers and addiction to muscle relaxants. my current diagnoses besides cfs are: bipolar disorder, severe general anxiety disorder, body dysmorphic disorder.
since late august of this year when i received my official diagnosis for cfs, i have had to stop working. in the two months prior to being diagnosed with cfs, i was hospitalized four times for exhaustion. since being diagnosed, i've been hospitalized once for a nervous breakdown.
i'm trying to adjust to sleeping sixteen or more hours a day when i used to be fairy active, or at least able to push myself through working and reading and writing. i'm also adjusting to being in a near-constant mental fog when my mental acuity was once extremely high.
there don't seem to be any "real world" groups for cfs where i live, so here i am. any advice is welcome. thank you for reading.
