well, i've had CFS for 8 months now and just when i thought i had it under control, it comes back and kicks me in the groin - thus resulting in my passing out in the supermarket! after my 2nd bought of fainting the staff decided to call an ambulance. so in come the paramedics all professional like, but the dumb found look on their faces when i told them i had CFS was comical!! the best comment had to be " i never heard of that - do you know what it is?" so i spent the next 15 minutes explaining too the paramedics through the stuttering as a result of the attack what it's all about! And they say that their the professionals, who they trying to kid!?

That is pretty amusing - not the part about you passing out - the part about the paramedics. It is interesting how many people are not familiar with CFS. At the very leasr you'll have an amusing story to tell for a while. Are you feeling any better now? I hope the symptoms are getting back under control for you.

Take care
