You may of heard of Myalgic encephalitis other wise known as Chronic fatigue syndrome. A crippling illness that effects all parts of the body and even the mind as well. Usually effecting women from their 30's upwards. Can be common in late 20's too, however I'm struggling to frind other teenages who suffer. Let alone ones still in school. I have heard of homeschooling or leaving school all together. But I have no one to guide me in what I'm trying to do. I am a 17 year old who has been sick since I was 12. I've had CFS for three years now after two years of glandular fever and another year of non-stop viruses. I have been left with barely any immune system, all most no friends or social life and I'm loosing a battle of health and school life. I'm afraid that I won't finish my VCE or have any hope to make it through the week. Can anyone reach out too me? please.
