Thanks so much for your replies Cactuscat and Kim <3
Cactuscat – I can only say from my own experience, but I can only function and focus with my ADHD medication. I would say to your husband that it is a lifelong condition that starts at birth and not a childhood illness.
Kim – good to know there are people that care on here – was starting to lose hope.
I have been diagnosed with ADHD/Anxiety/Depression but not CFS.
Fatigue has been a massive issue through my life – it’s as if I could sleep at any given opportunity, even after a good night’s sleep!
My husbands family find it amusing that I need to have at least one nap in the day when we all go on holiday.
The way I describe it is like I have an energy bar above my head needs “recharging” so I can function. If I am around people and need to “recharge” I feel very uncomfortable/spaced out/on edge if I am in a situation where I can’t sleep.
Hi Penny thank you for your reply.
The prescription I was given, was for the whole Titration period upfront.
The Titration was described by the nurse as follows, when referring to a form I have to fill out at the end of each week:
“This form is to help us monitor your response to treatment on a weekly basis as the dose of medication is increasing.”
It did seem to me as if it was inevitable and had been pre-decided that I would be ending up on the higher dose.
