I MEAN IT! i AM SO MAD RIGHT NOW. AFTER READING EZBRUZER'S POST. AND MY OWN EXPERIENCES. C.F.S. AND F.M. ARE REAL DISORDERS. DOCTORS SHOULD NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO JUST DECIDE THEY PERSONALLY DO NOT BELIEVE IN THEM. I THINK WE SHOULD START WRITING LETTERS TO THE ...WHAT'S IT CALLED...YOU KNOW, GOVERNING BODIES OF THESE DOCTORS. i think Doc's who dismiss these illness need to be given a wake up call and should be..I can't think of the correct word, but you will think of it, means penalized or warned or punished but in a mild way. If these diseases are defined and in the medical texts, then the doctors are supposed to be aware of them and not dismissing them, right? I am crying right now. So upset for Lisa, for me [my recent call to a psychiatrist, she says treatment for CFS is "you must go back to work" It's the cutting edge treatment, so if you are not working she won't see you, I've had other docs tell me they don't believe in CFS] and mostly for all of us, I've read your stories about your doctors. Please people, if you can, start writing the gov't reps and the medical governing boards. It may just start to make a difference. Don't you think it's time we started reporting these docs and turning the tables????
