Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia Symptom Description Page - ME/CFS and FM Patients Describe What ME/CFS/FM is Really Like

What's it like?
Extremities filled with lead
A Head filled with cotton candy
A Body longing for an oil can for ever migrating aches
A spirit that is demoralized
A self image that is diminished daily
A social life that is nearly extinct
A love/hate relationship with my bed
A growing intolerance for sentences that begiin with "what you need is . . . "
"have you tried. . ." Etc.

Do these genes make me look fat? Well then, miserable?
Sometimes I just gotta vent . . .

The love/hate relationship with your bed - isn't that true!

Last night the cuticles on my right hand were screaming. The skin on my right hand and wrist burns and the joints feel like a hot ice pick has been inserted, unbearably at times. My head is too heavy to hold up and my muscles have melted leaving me unable to sit in a chair. I slither to the floor like a slinky. The heat will emanate from my body like a blast furnace. I feel like I have been run over by a semi then pulled through a knot hole backwards. Thank you God for our hot tub.
