Clari ... Wonky had M.E, throughout her teens and most of her 20s following glandular fever at age 11. However at that time there was very little known about it ... it was a long time before she got a diagnosis ... several years ... she missed a lot of school and there was very little treatment other than rest and some anti-depressants which she stopped taking as she said that the knowledge that she was taking tablets to stop her being depressed made her even more depressed. I think she'll tell you that listening to her body and not pushing herself too hard was important, as was keeping her immune system functioning as well as possible and doing stuff that made her feel good and positive.
However that was a long time ago and a lot more is known about the condition nowadays .although I think it remains a very difficult condition to diagnose .. the best people to talk to are the medical professionals you're involved with. ((hugs))
