my entire life is me being forced to get out of bed
You know you have chronic fatigue when you get excited about waking up before 1pm
I don’t understand why some people aren’t okay with sitting at home doing nothing like why do you need to be with your friends constantly don’t you ever want time to yourself jesus christ
no one can imagine the immense pain chronically ill people go through, like people tell you to push through on your especially bad days, but no one understands that you push through everyday and try your hardest to not panic about what may happen if you overwork yourself.
Bored? Try this game. It gives you an understanding of living with CFS and other chronic illnesses.
DO THIS NOW.
My beautiful friend S has CFS so I decided to do this to try and see what it was like for her. Working with the amount of spoons (translated into energy) available, I would be able to do about a third of the things I do now if I had CFS. A third.
I think that’s what upsets me the most about it.I’m always tired, even if it goes into remission I’ll still be tired all the time,just not as bad. I’ll always be tired. Most people sleep to stop being tired. With me, it’s not that simple. And it probably never will be.
Someone should make the spoon theory into an online game that I can make all my teachers play and no matter which daily activities they chose to do or chose to skip, they always lose.
if i had a dollar for every time i heard “on a scale of one to ten how bad is your pain?” i’d be so fucking rich
