Some of them include that it’s caused by some kind of virus.  Other theories say that it due to “burnout,” is caused by unrelenting stress, or is caused by one initial stressful event like divorce or a car accident that fundamentally alters the way the body functions afterward. It’s tough, unfortunately for those of us suffering from this illness, since fatigue itself is a marker of most disease states, and therefore it’s hard to pinpoint what this is exactly. Chronic fatigue is feeling that you have no energy, absolutely zero energy – like you are at zero point energy — and even below that if it’s possible. It feels like the main switch in your body that gives you energy has been turn off – or shorted...
