So last couple weeks family and I all had the flu and everyone else got hit harder than me with tiredness and fatigue, as I have CFS I'm used to living on exhaustion so I didn't find the added exhaustion odd as its not as it wasn't as bad as my "bad days". Is it bad that I felt happy that the rest of my family was suffering just so they know what a week in my life is like?

      nope, total mood πŸ˜‚πŸ˜… I have ME and while I do get hit harder than others sometimes - the few times they get completely obliterated by exhaustion and I'm just sitting there ✨️🀨✨️ completely fine and feeling "normal" since I'm used to feeling like that all the time - it feels amazing πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ™Œ

      I feel the same way when my family gets sick. I secretly think "now they kind of feel what I'm going through" I feel guilty about it...but it seems like since I feel sick all the time it doesn't matter as much to them. It doesn't get any easier though so idk why they act like we should just suck it up. It is very frustrating and lonley.

        @tiredtarantula Yeah when you first get sick its fine because everyone cares but when it keeps going and everything gets worse then better people start thinking you're faking then when they relise your not they care again and when it keeps going it becomes "normal" and it seems your always complaining about it and you feel guilty.

          @ClayBrooks yes exactly! I hate that they think I'm faking it. They don't say it but I can tell. It's very frustrating because we aren't faking it πŸ™ƒ I feel terrible most of the time and this isn't fun.
