You Know You Have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome when...

You Know You have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome when:
  • One spoon will be for your shower, two spoons will be for walking your dog, another spoon will be for brushing your hair and teeth, and... you're already out of spoons! (The spoon theory uses a metaphor of spoons to turn energy into a measurable concept. A person living with CFS only has a certain number of spoons in their possession each day, and every small action a person takes can result in a lost spoon. A CFS patient who runs out of spoons loses the ability to do anything other than rest).
  • When there are about a hundred names to use and they either don't make sense, are completely demeaning, or are very hard to say... Well it was Chronic fatigue syndrome and myalgic encephalomyelitis last week but this week it is Systemic Exertion Intolerance Disease or SEID.
  • When putting and finding your underwear in the freezer is by far not the strangest thing you've done this week!!!
  • When your idea of a good time on a saturday is partying with Emojis on the internet with your CFS Facebook friends!!!
  • When you have notes for just about everything and you still don't get it right because you forgot to look at the note that says: "Read your notes" !!!
  • When you have to explain what it is to your doctor!
