Good morning ladies and gentlemen, my names Joe and im new to your wonderful site, ive read with interest your blogs and posts. Ive recently been diagnosed with CFS/M.E. and fibromyalgia, after about 8 years of going back and fro from doctors to rhuematologists, back to doctors, who diagnosed me with everything from fallen arches to psiaritic arthritis. So got fed up in the end, because of the pain and all the time off work ive taken, i went private, and low and behold after paying private was told Fibro/M.E. is it relife i feel or fear, i hadnt even heard of either silent assassin, but since doing some research and reading all your wonderful, helpful and uplifting funny blogs/posts i feel a bit better. Ive now been signed off work for 4 months now, and is now starting to call the various agencys for benefits etc etc, are there any rules i should be following, keep being told different things, fill forms in as if its your worst day, fill in forms on how you feel on the day, last 7 days yadda yadda yadda, so any help off you professionals (because lets face it, your the ones suffering) would be greatly appreciated, i hope ive not bored you all to death. Ill sign off for now but will catch up with you all later, thank you again, think ill have yet another 40 winks, lots of love Joe x x x x
