Hi everyone, I am new here so finding my way around.  I was just so isolated and desperate to find other people with CFS to communicate with who know what I am talking about.  I have had CFS for 4 years and only diagnosed 2 years.  Terrible battle with doctor not to be labelled "depressed" or "menopausal"!!  In the end I paid for my own consultation to get a diagnosis, but have no specialist support locally.

Hi Macquelius,
Welcome to HW, we are so glad you found us, I too was going thru test after test after test not knowing what was wrong with me, the pain, the fatigue, memory loss, depression and so forth, I thought I was going insane, I thought everything was in my head because noone had answers for me until I found the right family Dr who actually stopped and listen to me and she referred me to the right Dr who on the spot dx me with Fibro, CFS, Anxiety/panic attacks, anyways enough about me, again welcome and please ask us anything we're here for each other.

Thanks for the welcome guys.  I hope I can learn a bit how to share my life with this thing 'cos I seem to be going round in circles getting no-where.  confused Seems strange to see myself called Macquelius - it's my dog's name!!  Every user name I tried was already in use.  I knew that one wouldn't be 'cos my daughter made it up.  My real name is Alison

Thanks. I've put some posts on some of the threads. First time I've ever talked about CFS with people who have it! Wow
