Hi, I'm new to this forum. My boyfriend had recently been diagnosed with CFS. He is very emotional about having this illness and I have been very supportive of him. However, he is really burnt out about this and doesn't want me in his life. He tells me that he doesn't want me to "suffer" along with him and that I'm better off with someone else. Not only has he shut me out of his life, but also his family. This really hurt me as I always thought that we were a team. Anyways, I'm here on this forum to learn more about this illness and hopefully I could be more helpful to my boyfriend. Any suggestions for an outsider? Thanks.
