    Exactly! It makes it harder to keep busy too, which just leaves more time to overthink everything and get in a mess I find

    My sister was in a shop and I was waiting outside with the dog, so she came out after a while. CFS, I knew walking into town and standing there for a bit wasn't going to go well but that'll teach me to leave mothers day to the last minute I suppose!



    I'll be fine, thanks. Are you ok? :hugs:



    :jumphug: Around if talking would help? :console:

    I wouldn't worry too much about the mess, usually it's something that can wait (or at least I keep telling myself that - I haven't vacuumed in over a month )

    With the other stuff could you make a list of everything and tackle the ones you find easiest first? Sometimes once the ball gets moving it's easier to do the harder stuff.

    I kins of worried, because I loose focus every since and do allways other stuff. Yeah, maybe I should try to cut everything in very, very, very small steps...instead of seeing the household (my room is so small, I have to clean up constantly to have space to move), other commitments I take on and a project...

    I allways say, way, just get it done and then I end up with having done nothing at all.... maybe should cut of internet effectively ... (then there is still radio....)

    How are you doing?

    I think you really need to tell your doctor about this. If she doesn't know, she can't help you. And although it's scary, it does sound like you need a bit of help with this. :hugs:

    Cutting it down to small, manageable steps sounds like a good idea. :yy: What I find helpful is actually making a physical list where I can then cross stuff off - I dunno, something about seeing what you've accomplished can be motivating?

    The internet can be a huge distraction sometimes: could you unplug the internet and give the cable to someone else in your house until you've done at least a few things that need doing?



    I'm not so great tbh. Little sleep and a lot of anxiety. Sucks. :nothing:

    I hate depression, I hate it I hate it I hate it so much:cry2:
    I feel like being sick, through no reason other than boredom and loneliness and empty sadness.

    Why do I always spend my days off feeling so low
    :console: I find that when I have nothing to do I tend to drop into misery really quickly. Maybe when you have days off see if you can organise things to do to keep you busy? :hugs:

    :hugs: for everybody. I was social and went to see rent with some uni people and it was totally worth getting dressed for. I may be watching the film later tonight because I had forgotten how much I love it as a musical.

    Aww that is difficult, I'm mostly housebound myself so understand where you're coming from.

    Dunno about you but for me since I've had cfs with the anxiety and depression everyone is giving me conflicting advice. Go out, no rest. I'm like ahhhhh 🙈

    Unless you go through it no one really understands, everyone thinks they know best which can make it pretty lonely at times 😒

    I can't imagine how hard it would be to be housebound! As hard as it is to go out sometimes I'd go completely mad I think.

    I get that too, a lot. I was told not to go back to school last year and ignored it, and to stop several times and not take exams but ignored that too. I've now taken a gap year and get told to get a job and be normal by some people, to just concentrate on working for resits by others, do absolutely nothing by others. I've tried both extremes but neither's helped at all.

    It can definitely make it lonely, particularly when everyone else is busy getting on with their lives and you're unable to. It's not something anyone can ever understand without going through it either as you say, and I wouldn't wish it on anyone. That said, there are some lovely people on here and on the CFS thread and feel free to message me if you ever want to!

    Dissociating whilst unpleasant serves a good purpose it's protecting you from all the stress that you might be struggling to cope with

    Also don't worry about the people on the train, you were in the right.

    You deserve a nice kip
