Jody, I do believe recovery is possible in some cases. I got to the point I could work a 30-hour week job, sitting down, as long as I had some lay down time in the middle of the day. However, I went through a stressful period and then two bouts with flues. And I relapsed again. I pray your recovery sticks.
I also believe what works for one might not work for another. But I appreciate your sharing your treatment. For those of us who aren't seeing one of the well-known experts, we feel everything is experimental, and costly, by the way.
I would love to hear what freelance work you are doing. And I urge you to stay involved with CFS. I understand the desire to move on to living life, we really need those who really know the illness, but have energy, to get involved in advocacy or other efforts.
