After a long spell of feeling fairly well, my CFS is creeping back, I am tired of yawning at my friends and walking, talking and generally looking like I am only half there. I have a job that still needs to be done no matter how I feel. And as much as I would like to pack up 20 mins after I have started, I can't.
