hi everyone yes sweet you are right everyones response sure made me feel a lot better , I also didn't realise that I do actually feel a bit guilty laying down through out the day !!!! now after reading all your responses its like I have been given permission to give into the fatigue at times and rest when needed , it is so hard trying to keep up with all my healthy friends but now I have realised (also spoke to my doctor about this ) that not only me but friends and family have to change their thinking and everyone has to learn to renegotiate "OUR" lives , all those in my inner circle have to adapt to my illness just as I have to adapt ,other wise friendships will crash , so I have started this already , with each person I speak to ( I dont go on and on about it ) but I make it clear that our lives wether it be friendships or family have to readapt and change or perish ,and I am astounded at how this termanology has gotten thru to everyone , its like they are hearing me for the first time, they are starting to get it !!!! yay thankyou all ,your responses and your own personal experiences helped me do a 360 degree turn around for the better thanks everyone hugs georgette

You go girl! No more guilt! I am so proud of you! You stood up for yourself and are taking care of yourself and doing things on your own terms! Way to go!!!
