    Does anyone else suffer this

    I see my naturopath once a month, and buy products, but I can't stop buying products. I can't go into a health shop without coming out with a, might make me better product. It costs heaps of money. I think this compulsive buying of products distracts me from the thoughts that I may have to live with CFS for the rest of my life.

    Desperate people do desperate things. Since my md have not helped me so far I am right behind you with my purchase but limited income keeps me from getting out of control.

    Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder - better go run and hide before someone wants to treat you with antidepressants.

    Just kidding (again) - I am sorry, I don't usually do this to people and I've done it to you twice. :eek:)

    Know what you mean though - I have spent lots on supplements, too. Two years ago, the only thing I went into the shoppe for was dried apricots. Now I come out with oils and seed extracts instead.

    Do you remember Jim Croce's "Time in a bottle", I would like to adopt that as our official CFIDS/ME/FMS theme song.
    Your mention of cure in a bottle made me think of time in a bottle.

    It helps to have a hobby, and there couldn`t be a better one than reading up on which foods do what for you.

    I`ve had this interest since being ill, and nothing goes in my mouth unless it has the greatest benefit for me.

    Love Pat.
