Hi Folks...... I'm very carefull about to whom I share my illness, as people can discrimate and stigmatise people who are ill. Sad but its true! Especially at work.... Some people will try and get you dismissed on medical grounds, just because they're nasty and mean spirited. I just do my job and keep my personal medical problems to myself. Geez...... it's even dangerous to share your medical problems with so called friends and family..... As you might be ridiculed amd dismissed as a hypochondriac or worst as a malingerer, or neurotic nut job. And there are many Doctors and stories on the Internet etc. that invalidate FMS/CFS as a true illness still. This illness was only acepted as a true illness in 1990 and many Doctors who were educated long ago, still aren't aware of the true nature of this illness and will write you off as an attention seeking neurotic. It's no wonder..... We walk in to the clinic each time with different physical complaints, all symptoms of FMS/CF. When we present each symptom separately to the Dr. he looks to treat just that part of the body(Ex. sore back) but he doesn't connect the dots. He doesn't realise that all these symptoms together, represent a whole body, systemic disease called Fibromyalgia or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. It's sad to say that it takes decades for the medical community to reverse the previous incorrect assumptions about this illness. The medical profession is SLOW to change...... Whats your opinions on this subject.
