    Hi @teighan, lovely to meet you! I have ME/CFS too. Unfortunately it's very difficult to 'treat' as there are no targeted treatment currently available for the condition. However, there's lots of guidance on condition management on this page which may come in helpful, and it may also be worth speaking to your GP about a referral to a specialist ME/CFS service. Hope this helps, and good luck!

    There no cure yet and treatment hit miss . My son had 2 1/2 years bedridden. Light box help keep body clock but there only time and trying do small things which you can and don’t feel guilty . We never put guilt on my son and it helps .he never got down he says he we’ll get better so positive mind help but I know not easy. There is a lot of people looking into illness now so you never know . A good doctor helps . Ask help and get good team around you it really dose help .
