Hi, I am 22 years old I was diagnosed with CFS when I was 16. They think it was brought on by a bad virus I had (causing arthritis and meningitis like rash). They told me it would only last a year and I clung onto that hope for longer than I probably should have. And now its eight years later and I have been through hell and back to the depths of depression. I still have bad days and very bad days but I have a fantastic supportive family and (finally!) have great friends.
My question is this? Does anybody struggle with the idea that M.E/CFS is not a "real" illness? find it challenging sometimes because they don't look sick? Or sometimes feel they are not sick enough?
It would be nice to meet people
Peace Out! :3
