I don't particularly know what to say, but I guess I should just say why I'm here.
I have chronic fatigue syndrome/M.E and have done since I was eleven years old (I'm now 16), and for some reason it's only just dawned on me five years later that there's most likely some apps to help with my illness, so here I am.
Life's been a little hectic I guess you could say, I've spent the entirety of my teenage years in and out of hospitals, getting what feels like every kind of scan and test there is (safe to say my fear of needles was weasled out quickly) and while most people were out at parties and socialising, the only new people I was meeting were paediatricians.
I've managed to stay in school and complete (and somehow pass) my GCSEs and am now doing A Levels, but God it's hard! Each time I think my energys come back, I loose the feeling in my legs and am bed bound for days and the cycle begins all over again.
I mean I'd hate to sound like a moaner, because I know how much worse I could have it- nothing life threatening here- but I thought I could just voice these thoughts as we're in the same boat, at least a little.
But the main reason I'm here is to just see if there are any tips anyone has to help with living with a chronic illness (any diets, or vitamins that have seemed to help?) because I want to proactive and just get on with life, which I think I'm doing, but anyway to make it easier would be hugely appreciated!
Sorry if that was completely uninteresting or I sound like a completely negative whinger, I just thought I'd see how this posting thing works :)
