Uggg. I have to vent this morning. I made an appointment with a new doc who just opened his practice this month here, but he's been practicing elsewhere for 20+ yrs. I was so hopeful and excited, and I go right on time. I wait for almost an hour and when he finally shows up, I tell him how I'm feeling, explain what I've found, show him the information I've gotten, and wait for him to speak. He says, you sure do have CFS, from what I can see. Your main concern is fatigue? Sorry, nothing you can do for it (which I expected in a way) and then he WALKS OUT!! He didn't try to help me in the least way!! Heck, they musta ran him out of the old practice! UGG! I am so angry and frustrated. I drove for almost an hour to get there and this 3 minutes is all I got? Sheesh!!
And now, my question is, does CFS sometimes come with a disability diagnosis? I mean, can I apply for diability with it, now that I've been diagnosed? I didn't even have time to ask the doctor. I really need the help with my kids, but obviously can't afford it, and I can't afford any medications that might help-vitamins, ect. Anybody know? How do I get started, if yes?
