Back at Work but Still Under the Weather

This is my second day back at work this week, and I'm on my lunch break. My body is still working very hard to fight off whatever it is I've had for the past several days. I feel yucky and achy, and I really don't feel like interacting with humans because of the amount of energy it takes. Though, oddly, I'm in a pretty good mood.

I'm definitely a bit better than earlier this week, but the lymph nodes in my neck are really bothering me. I'm pretty sure I'm running a fever. At least my throat doesn't hurt like it did before.

Why am I at work, you ask? Well, I can't afford to use any more sick leave unless absolutely necessary. Thank goodness my workday today mostly involves paperwork at my desk, so there's not too much movement or interaction that I have to do.

What I'd really like to do right now is crawl under my desk and take a nap, but I think people might notice. I just wish I had my awesome, new Disneyland throw blanket. It's really comfy.

Just for fun:

Hi Alyson,

thanks for visiting my blog! I'm sorry that you're not feeling good :(

I don't know too many people in their 20s/30s with CFS. To be honest, I don't visit too many CFS related sites/pages unless they are positive/upbeat in nature. I find that I get rly depressed & hopeless when I read abt how badly other people are doing.

I also find that the more positive I try to be, the easier it is for me to deal with the fatigue, even on the bad days. (I find that reading some spiritual/self imnprovement books have rly helped me become more positive abt the life in general and CFS in particular. I have a post on this:

Of course, this is very personal, I know that a lot of people feel better when they are able to share their experiences with others who've been through the same and who actually understand CFS.

A good source if you want to meet more young people with a similar condition is:

hope this helps :)

Take care of yourself and stay in touch!
