I came across this article today, and I wanted to share it. I think the reason this article is so important, is because it shows the importance of both awareness and treatment of CFS. Even though (at this time) there is no cure for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, treating the symptoms (which can be different in both type and severity) can go a long way in helping sufferers be as healthy as they can be, while living with this debilitating disease. What I mean is; If on a scale of one to ten….”one” being, no treatment and a patient feeling all the effects of this disease….and “ten” being, treatment of symptoms and a patient feeling the best they can feel, given their condition….We need to strive to get patients to as close to “their” ten as they can be. Then “living” with this disease can go from being impossible to tolerable, I think this is what doctors and patients need to really focus on at this point.

All chronic medical conditions are worse if they are left untreated, if a patient can feel even a little better by having their symptoms treated, living with these conditions can become somewhat or even much more tolerable. Until there is a cure for CFS and FM (and I hope someday there will be), awareness and treatment is the best we can do.
