Hi- I have had CFIDS for a least 2 yrs.When my G.P. doctor diagnosed me after a yr. of tests, he told me he didn't want to treat me. I have been without a doctor for about 8 mo., except for a phsychiatrist who falls asleep when he talks to me and forgets to refill my medicine. I try to ignore that I have this, though denial is usually dispicable to me, becuase I don't know how to cope. I have no treatment,no doctor, no advise, and unfortunately I moved here from far away right when I got sick so I have not made friends.Believe it or not, I have been able to stay pretty positive through it all. Today, though, I am really scared for the first time, I just have felt too sick for about 2 mo. straight and every day it gets worse. I have gotten to the point where taking my dog out is too much. So, what I 'd like most of all if anyone can help me, is first to have someone who understands to talk to, and secondly if anyone is from Southern Cal. LA area and has Medical or Medicare - if they know of any docotrs or clinics that accept it. So far the ones Ive located don't and I cannot work so I cant afford them. Also, if there is anyone who has any knowledge of this being related to being allergic to something (Ive been told I may have gotten this because of something enviromantally or in my new apartment I am allergic to. Hope to hear from some. thanks, clis firstname.lastname@example.org - female/44/l.a.ca.
