Unfortunately with ME there isn’t one magic pill or treatment to help us get better – less ethical individuals may claim there is. Such is the nature of an illness where individuals with similar symptoms yet unknown causes are grouped together with the term “Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Post-Viral Fatigue and ME.” And such is the nature of hearing the words “Chronic Fatigue Symptom” to suppose it’s about being tired all the time – a syndrome not an illness or disease. That’s why you’ll hear the term “ME/CFS” a lot – as CFS alone doesn’t seem to give the illness authenticity. Plus if you have the associated brain fog and cognitive effects of ME/CFS – try remembering and pronouncing the words “Myalgic Encephalomyelitis” in a sentence.
It’s frustrating – along with finding it now hard to do VLOOKUPs and simple Excel formulae – seriously “SUM”, “Open Bracket”, “Oh no – what was that cell reference again?!”, “SUM – ummm – I give up!” Why doesn’t my brain work anymore!!! Let’s not even consider IF statements and nesting. Thankfully though my PowerPoint skills seem to be reasonably retained.
