Again, the good news, I didn't have to flee - I just needed some air, small sips of water, and time to regain some strength. After about 20 minutes, I was able to go back inside, and catch up with my family and enjoy the remainder of the early afternoon. Its a frustrating thing not understanding why now and being fairly helpless to do much to feel better. But instead of my normal self irritation, I took this a bit more in stride, did the best I could and chose to take my own advice...the bird was in my hand....there was a wonderful quote that was in Sue Jackson's article about living with CFS taken from the link in my previous post - and sums up what I was thinking....
"Our life now is different than it was before CFS, but it’s still ours." - Sue Jackson
