Indeed ME/CFS can make a huge impact on your lifestlye and dramatically change your daily life as you once knew it. So it is very important that you have a supportive network of people around you.

Dealing With Social Stigma & Medical Scepticism...

The social stigma attached to having a condition like ME/CFS means that some people may think that it's all in your mind. But it most definitely is not.

In fact, even though ME/CFS has been recognised by the United Kingdom (UK) government as a very real and serious bio-chemical condition, there is still alot of medical scepticism out there. Sadly, many ME/CFS sufferers have reported that they have not received the support they need from their doctor. And unfortunately, some sufferers have even said that they have been given the wrong diagnosis or incorrect medical advice.

But the fact is, ME/CFS does exist. You are going through it. And you and your family are NOT alone.

There is support out there - for you and the people around you.

Your local support group may even be able to recommend a few doctors and/or health professionals in your area. There's nothing like a first-hand recommendation, after all.

 

The Importance Of Support & Understanding From Your Friends & Family...

Having the understanding and support of your loved ones can really make the world of difference to a sufferer. But this invisible illness can be very hard to understand, especially if you have never had any direct experience of ME/CFS yourself. Many friends and relatives of sufferers find it difficult to accept, acknowledge and/or understand why their loved one has become so ill and weak.
