oh goodness. that's a lot to deal with. I have ME & Fibro as well as psoriatic arthritis, under-active thyroid and quite a few other smaller conditions too. I find that having a trip to a warm country can be quite good. don't get over heated, stressed or push yourself too much. I went to Tenerife back in May and I got over heated once and ended up spending my last 2 days of the holiday in bed with ice packs on my head, throwing up and in so much pain I used 2 weeks of morphine in 3 days. keep yourself hydrated, well fed with fresh fruit and veg and stay cool! non-alcoholic cocktails are great I find. take taxi's to and from the shops and have a nap after lunch. hope this helps and have a great time xx
