Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Whether you refer to it as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Chronic Fatigue Immune and Dysfunction Syndrome (CFIDS), or Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.), the name alone cannot convey the devastation brought about by having to cope with this condition. The “fatigue” in the name refers to much more than just being tired. Those who suffer from this condition experience a fatiguing condition similar to how one feels when you have the flu. Only with the flu, you eventually get better. Imagine dealing with those muscle aches, the weakness, headaches, and other symptoms on a daily basis and you know how someone with CFS feels on a good day.

For more information, see: What is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?

One of the most difficult things to deal with when confronted with a Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, or Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.) diagnosis is finding the support you need. This is especially difficult because your family and friends may be having difficulty understanding the changes in you — especially when you don’t understand those changes yourself.
