May Is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome AWARENESS MONTH…I Guess Nobody Mentioned This To My Doctor. — by Catherine Morgan

Don’t get me wrong, I really like my doctor. He takes a lot of time with his patients, he is kind, and he really does just want to see his patients get well. But, he doesn’t believe in the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome diagnosis. So why is he my doctor? I continue to go to him because I really do believe he is a good doctor…and having a good doctor is more important than a doctor just placating me about CFS. I like to think he is just a bit naive when it comes to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome…and I do hold out hope that with my help he may become both aware and excepting of this (my) condition.

Anyway, I just had to come home and post about what my doctor said to me today.

He said, “ Have you been exercising? “… Me said, “ No, my asthma has been very bad the last few months…and even so…with my CFS exercise is almost impossible because it makes my symptoms so much worse. “… He said, “ It’s a fact that exercise helps the symptoms of Chronic Fatigue. ” He explained that I should start walking around the block, and then continue to walk a little more each day. This is when my cartoon bubble said, “ and if I do that the CFS angels will sprinkle fairy dust on me and I will be cured. Why didn’t I think of that? Oh, I did…IT DOESN’T WORK…IT MAKES IT WORSE!My cartoon bubble digresses. I didn’t argue with him about it, I figured it wasn’t worth the trouble, after all I do like him as my doctor.
