I've just watched a very good episode of the UK daytime drama, "Doctors". The story was about a person with CFS, who was in a wheelchair and needed to sort out a carer so that she could go to uni. The programme showed her having a consultation with a completely accepting and affirming GP, who gave out all the right advice and information. When the character commented that her pains had become worse, the GP actually volunteered a different painkiller. The only unlikely bit was where the character suffered a CFS "crash", her mother called the GP - and he actually made a home call to tell her to rest! Overall, a very positive programme, which showed the medical profession taking CFS seriously and portrayed a CFS patient as being strong-minded and wanting to be independant. Full marks to the BBC. Somebody in there is on our side.
