My Dr. retires. He had said I had CFIDS/FIRBO.I see new Dr. New Dr. runs tests. I was not sure about FIBRO/CFIDS myself, too new and strange to me. I am keeping an open mind. I go back to his office a week later after tests and blood work. I could hardly walk ito his office. I sit, he is late coming back to the office. Nurse hands me a magazine and leaves. I was barely able to keep it in my lap.....I was weak and my body was trying to slide off the chair and land on the carpet and I felt I would be absorbed by the carpet, as I was to weak to keep form. I had noticed that the magazine was Good Housekeeping. I grinned to myself as I had same magazine at home, got it the month before, but it was still unread. The magazine was slipping from my grasp and I grabbed it and it OPENED TO AN ARTICLE ON CFIDS. (Praise God). But my vision was hazy and words jumped around. So I closed the magazine. The new Dr. that ran all these tests comes in. I said, "This magazine has an article on CFIDS".... HE GRABS THE MAGAZINE and tossed it across his office, it bounced off the wall. He yelled, "There is no such thing, that is a garbage can syndrome. You Americans just don't want to work".....and he went on to say all my tests came back good, oh it did show that I had MONO, but it has cleared up.....up are okay.!!!!!!!!.......I left his office crying, I could not talk because I was so upset and so sick. Later when I did read the article at home......MONO was a suspected reason for activating chronic fatigue, or involved somehow..at that time. If he had read upon CFIDS at all........ he would of known.
