Here at Awareness Gift Boutique, we understand the importance of feeling healthy and well-rested. If you’ve ever felt so run down and tired that you can’t even leave your own house, you know what a terrible feeling it is. People who are living with chronic fatigue syndrome know that feeling all too well.
Chronic fatigue syndrome, or CFS, is a condition of prolonged and severe tiredness that is not relieved by rest. CFS is not related to exertion: people who live with CFS are tired and fatigued no matter what they do, even if they try to “take it easy for awhile.”
The symptoms of CFS are similar to that of many common viral infections, but they last for months. In order to be officially diagnosed with CFS, someone must be experiencing symptoms for at least 6 months.
Symptoms of CFS include extreme tiredness that is not brought on by any particular activity. This fatigue must be severe enough to prevent someone from following through with their normal, everyday activities, such as going to work or cooking dinner. Their quality of life is severely altered because of their condition.
There is no real cure for CFS, which makes awareness of the condition even more important. Awareness Gift Boutique strives to spread the news about all important causes, including Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Our online boutique has a wide selection of CFS Awareness Products, including merchandise and apparel, such as these T-shirts:
