I've been looking around for ways to explain to doctors why my ME/CFS is not depression. Here are the two I've used lately. 1. I explain to the doctor that I have seen more than one psychiatrist, that the psychiatrists experimented with my medication, that this changed my level of depression, but my ME/CFS symptom cluster remained unchanged during all of this. And in all other experiences, there appears to be no correlation between changes in my level of depression and changes in my ME/CFS symptoms. 2. I say to the doctor "Depression does not get worse when one stands up; depression does not get worse when one walks 50 feet. This is not depression." I sort of like the second one better. But maybe that's because I'm tired of all this. Comments, suggestions, alternatives?
