That may not sound like an achievement. But the usual routine when I get a virus of any sort is that I have the virus and may not be too bad. Then it starts to go and after a couple of days I come crashing down and feel 10 times worse. This, allegedly, is my "ME".
3 weeks ago I had the ghastly cold that's going the round. Left eye glues together, ulcers all over my tongue, horrid chesty cough, blocked right ear, swollen throat. You know how it goes.
But it's gone. Completely and for the first time in years I haven't come crashing down.
Coincidence? I don't think so. It's the thyroid/adrenal meds I'm taking.
If this happens to you and you've been told you have ME, get your adrenals tested and get yourself on thyroid and adrenal support, even if your doc is the usual waste of space type who can't be ******ed to see past the end of his extremely prominent proboscis.
