Just a quick note to say hi! Carolyn419, I just joined this site. I saw your post and my heart went out to you. I have been on Disability for CFS since 1992. I still remember how difficult it was to try to keep my career going while trying to cope with this illness. It was a long time before I got a dianosis. I, too was a single parent. My daughter was about 6 when I was diagnosed. The teenage years were tough! Take heart. If I made it you can too.
