Have any of you experienced friends saying "im so tired, i must have CFS", or "im aching and tired, i must have what you have" etc etc.
i have a friend who, like the rest of the population works full time and is in good health. when she gets home from work, she whines about having CFS etc because "no one is this tired." If she is anxious or nervous about something, she suddenly has Panic Disorder.
it frustrates me so badly. she has NO idea what i go through, but its like its a competition- if im diagnosed with something, she runs off and decided after consulting the internet, that she has whatever i have. i feel like slapping her and wish she could walk a mile in my shoes and she would see that she is tired the same way everyone is tired. she has no sinister illness, she just wants people to believe she does, for attention etc.
has anyone else experienced this?
