    Karen,
    What are some of your symptoms? I have diagnosed myself with CFS. I have recently been to the dr and he sent me to a sleep dr. I had a sleep test done and have been given a CPAP. I do not feel better. In fact I think it has gotten worse. I am on Lexapro for depression. My dr. gave me provigil too. I like it a lot, it really helps me feel awake during the day but when it wares off I CRASH. So, I don't take it that often unless I really need to be alert all day. I am soooo tired all the time. I get depressed about the tiredness. I feel like I could sleep all the time. Recently I have been having trouble getting to sleep which has never happened before. But once I finally get to sleep I could sleep for days (it feels like). I feel helpless! This is a debilitating illness and I just don't know what to do. I feel like I am wasting my life in bed. I am missing out on so much. After reading your post I feel like I need to go back to my dr., which I have been considering anyway. God I wish I could figure out how to feel better.
