    I understand that you are feeling really down and you have every right.I don't know a doctor in your area,but keep looking until someone understands how to help you.I understand you are lonely and hurting since your family does not help.We all need to get help and support where we know we can.Good place to start was this web site.Are you getting any therapy?It helps so much to have one person sit and talk with you and help you help yourself.It saved my life!Believe me I was in a bad way at one time-i have come a long way with my life.Is the support group near you-your hospital could give you that info.I have been in a support group for years and the friends there have helped so much.I am going to give you info where you may get some help.

    My Dr., Joyce Zagursky specializes in CFS, FMS,and other autoimmune things. She's been great for me! I have CFIDS. She really knows her stuff.
    She is at Riddle Memorial Hospital in Media, Delaware County, PA. (Southeast of Phila. Intl. Airport)
