    Hey Y'all, from Bonnie Scotland! How many of you out there, had surgery, prior to being diagnosed, or even just been hospitalised for any other treatment? I don,t suppose it is possible for ANYONE, NOT to have been given antibiotics, at some stage in there lives???!!!!!! Is there 'such' a person, I wonder?????? Not sure if I am making any sense? My mind just goes round in circles, trying to figure-out what all the relevant connections are? Do we have any 'Surgeons' or any other 'High-Profile' Medical-People' who are affected with any of these D.Ds's???? Stands to reason, statistically speaking......THERE MUST BE.............?????? WHERE ARE THEY??????? 'WHERE' are 'ALL' the various 'HiGH - PROFILE' peoples, from 'ALL' walks of life???????????

    Getting late here...............and I'm just getting desperate , and so fed-up, feeling that we are all 'left to get on with it'!!!!!!!! There are, after all. a 'proverbial ARMY' of us, all over the planet!!! Let's 'Rise-Up' & do Battle FOR OURSELVES, and get some ANSWERS......WE DESERVE iT!!!!!!!!!!!!! Honestly, I would not let any of my animals suffer, if I thought they were in as much pain, as we are, every day!!!!!!!!

    Over To YOU..........MY FRiENDS...............Where are the 'LEADERS' among US???
    Bestest Love to each and EVERYONE of YOU!!!!!!!!!! Peaceful Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz"s, as many as you can muster, & Sweet & Healthy Dreams!!! Mai Xxx :)

    I have not been hospitalized since shortly after my birth.

    I have had antibiotics. It was actually a nasty rebound infection after taking antibiotics that started my CFS. I think that I got significantly worse with each rebound infection after that. (I don't take antibiotics unless I am seriously ill.)

    As for the 'high profile' sufferers, I think they probably get treated without publicly acknowledging what they have.

    Hi Littlebluestem! Hope I'm doing this right!!!! Lol! Just wanted to thank you for your response to my rantings last nite!!! Lol! Yours makes it a V. interesting case in point, as you hadnot spent much time in hospital, and then the fact that your CFS came on, after being given antibiotics!!! Have I got that right? I am just 'floundering in the dark' about this, the same as everyone else, but at least we are actively trying to figure this out, which is more than can be said, for the majority of the Medical Profession!!!!!!


    Hope I get some more replys! Thanks once again, and wishing you a Very Happy Easter. Cheers! Love & Peace Mai :)

    I have been plagued by weird infections all along, even before my initial diagnoisis. The antibiotic of choice now seems to be Clindamycin. Why? I do not know. I do not even question the doctor now. He has been taking good care of me and that is all I care about.

    Now, where are all of the professionals of health care specialists with these diseases? I have seen a few posts along the way of patients who have health professionals who have had our problems. They seem to be few and far apart, but like you: I know they exist.

    You have a great attitude from Bonnie Ole Scotland. I imagine cold weather there now. Wrong?

    Welcome to the board. I hope you don't mind, my dad is from Scotland and I sent him the last message you posted, as I thought he would get a kick out of the way you worded it. Sounded SO Scottish to me!

    Take care, Sally

    Uhhhh, back to the topic???

    Yes, I had a lot of antibiotics in my lifetime...

    However, with CFS, there may be mycoplasmas present, and certain antibiotics should be avoided, esp. penicillin!

    Dr. Garth Nicolson of Gulf War research fame, says it feeds the mycoplasmas! His info is at immed.org.

    Also, do a search on Clindamycin and deaths reported! There's stuff on this site about it...do a search.

    BTW, altho it was hard to read all that scottish language, it sure was FUN! Thanks!

    Umm, so my personal opinion is that there are not "leaders" with CFIDS or fibro that are hiding the answers. There are plenty of informative sources of information out there that have helped me and numerous other people. The trick is finding the right methods of healing that work best for our individual bodies.

    I'm actually going to be a nurse practitioner, and am currently studying nutrition and going to finish my bachelor's degree in another area. I'm going to go to nursing school in a couple of years and then eventually be a nurse practitioner and help people take care of their own health and well-being.

    I have been able to research and get a lot of help for myself. My NP has had CFIDS as well- she's not hiding anything ... she's helping me, as many people in the medical profession do.

    My personal belief is that for my body and my illness, the only cure is to live as healthy as I can - eat well, get enough sleep, try to limit and handle stress as well as possible, exercise, limit triggers (like mold, poor ventilation, stressful work, being cold, exposure to viruses and bacteria, etc), do yoga and breathing exercises, have fun and relax and keep learning more on how to support my body.

    That's what works for me.
