A sufferer of CFIDs for 8 years, I visited the FFC clinic in Vegas for the first time in March of 07. At that time I was at a 2 on a scale of 1-10, suffering most of the common symptoms of CFIDS. Getting out of bed and showering at that time was a major challenge, etc. Within 3 months of my first visit I was up to a 5, feeling so much better. Now, 15 months later I am at a 9.5!!! In the last 15 months I followed the treatment protocol 100%, took my meds and followed the diet faithfully, worked hand-in-hand with my doctor (she knows the symptoms and knows what works), learned how to say "no", got off my adrenaline "high", found rest through music and prayer, gave up my need to have the "perfect" life, and learned to listen to my body's needs. Is life with these illnesses easy? No. Was the treatment expensive? Not as much as I was spending on other doctors and tests that gave me no relief or answers. (I didn't have Dr co-pay, but the lab work was paid by insurance, after my deductible.) WAS THIS ALL WORTH IT? ABSOLUTELY! PLEASE, don't miss the opportunity to be "well" again, living a joyous, purposeful life. The Fibro & Fatigue clinic doctors know these illnesses and how to treat them. If you don't get results from one doctor, ask for another doctor or go to another FFC clinic in another town. But don't give up!
