    I have never heard of these diseases being contagious.
    However, I have read that some people have gotten their
    medical problems from Gulf War Illness, which would make it a contagious illness from airborne infectious agents.
    Kissing, etc.: I have not heard anything about it being contagious and I believe my doctor told me it is not.

    Cause depression in the ones around them, so it may seem as if they are contagious, but mostly just wearisome.

    My DH is disabled from head trauma, son has autism, I have FM maybe Lupus(that one is on and off).

    Sometimes I think what it would be like to be just normal for a couple of days.

    We have a good life really, and count our blessings.

    I don't believe that the condition itself is contagious, but that some of the viruses/infections that set it off in our system are ;)

    You wanted to know if people were always sick or if it just hit them one day. If I think back to my life I have always been sick with allergies, low energy, migraines, other things at different times of my life. The CF hit me after I had a bout with mono about 16 years ago. I have had good times and bad times. It comes and goes. The worst part of CF lasted about 2 years. I have had major sinus problems for about a year now. Just can't shake it.
