Lilycat, hi & welcome to the forum. You certainly can get through this without getting Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. They don't really know why people get CFS, but some who have it have had HHV-6 at sometime in their lives. Whether the two are connected is not fully known. Still a mystery, as this whole illness is. I hope you get through this soon & feel better. I am sorry the meds are so expensive & your insurance won't pay, that is so sad. Have you looked into Medicaid or any type of help? I couldn't get medicaid because I make a little too much with my disability & survival benefits. It is worth looking into. Hugs, Denise
