I've been battling cfs for 4 years now, and I still am not progressing well. In an attempt to turn it all around, I have been seeing a doctor familiar with things of the sort and going about things the 'herbal' way. Diets and all. Unfortunately, I have not done well with this, because I am.. Lazy. Or something. I am 15 now, and if anything i'm just getting worse. I find myself too weak/apathetic/'hopeless' to even bother with taking my supplements at this point, and i've been looking into the matter trying to find something that could help me function - at least enough to help me focus on improvement - and at the most, maybe help me to attend school.
It's getting pretty bad. I fade in and out of consciousness, hallucinate, and confuse 'dreams' with reality. I sleep a lot, and am perfectly capable of sleeping more. Anytime. I can fall asleep anywhere. I often feel so tired that I can't even breathe regularly, and I panic, so I sort of 'snap out of it' and somehow think i've 'woken up'. I'd like to blame it all on fatigue, but I am not sure if that's really fair. Nonetheless, I was hoping someone could help me out a bit. If I told my doctor all of this, do you think he would prescribe anything for it? And if so, what do you think he would prescribe? Should I ask for anything in particular? I was thinking dexedrine or provigil, but I know nothing of either, and I may be way off. Please help.
