First let me say that this place is a life saver. I guess I was in denial about CFS. I very often just felt like I was gravely ill and would not live long because we didn't know what was wrong with me. Then when my doc said I had CFS..I said yeah, right! I now understand what CFS is about..it's not just being overly tired. There is so much more to it. After reading and researching..I realize...THATS EXACTLY WHAT I HAVE! He was right! I have a Dr appoint tomorrow morning. The last time I saw my doc, he said..when you have more bad days than good, then it's time to change our plan of action. Really??? You mean I have to feel worse than..not being able to do things with my husband....worse than having to leave work early because I am so sick and in such pain I can't stay for the remainder of the day??? worse than not really having a life at all??? The more I thought about that comment, the more upset I became. I need affirmative, agressive action. It all may not work...but please..do something. Right now, we are doing absolutely nothing to help me with my symptoms other than the research I do online and then buy herbs and other holistic meds. My question is this..I don't want to offend my doc..he has treated me for 15 years. I just want the respect that CFS deserves allowing me to have a chance at a normal life. If he doesn't feel like he can committ to helping me..I need to find someone that will. Could anyone out there give me some advise on how to approach this with my doc? I am so emotional right now and I need some direction. Thank you so very much!! Thanks so much!!!
