Tell me about it.Life changing shit.It's hard,because even you're Dr's and family don't know, they can't know,just like I didn't know before it happened to me.It's just like people think you're a falke,unrelable,or exaggerating.Or a ,"drug seeker/addict." if they only could fell what I am going through.I wish empathy included the ability to actually feel ,even for a minute,what the other person feels,..to better understand one another.Words often can't explain feelings,pain,etc. ME/CFS
