either google or ask your doctor to refer you to a local cfs/me clinic in your area most teaching hospital should have a clinic. Your doctor will first need to run some blood test to see if there is any underlying
illness but if they come back normal and your still feeling much the same then he can refer you to be seen by a consultant.

best wishes

Trouble is, Nep, something I've learned is that if the minions of parliament take a positive, worthwhile step forward, the big boys tend to step on their feet. There ARE good people in parliament, but they don't progress up the ladder unless they become cynical and 'join the club', which is very sad.

We can certainly govern ourselves, but because we no longer live in a democracy, we have no influence over those who 'govern us'. But that's okay as long as we educate ourselves & take responsibility for ourselves and our families, as long as we stop listening to the mainstream media and as long as we learn to recognise and eat real food rather than the crap that the food industry tell us is good.

I sense quite a big shift across the political divide....this debate soundly rubbished the PACE trial and its flawed findings, calling for better research and consultation, finally pulling away from the psychological dogma.  I don’t pretend to understand the political ramifications of “the ayes have it” but every step forward is a step forward.......

I believe in a society that strives to support and help those who need it, a shared responsibility. I know you do too, because you so willingly share your time and expertise giving hope to the many members and visitors here seeking hope, compassion and a way forward.

So I guess we all “govern”.

I’m a natural Tory – take responsibility for yourself but protect those who can’t protect themselves – but I dislike this Government quite intensely. I’ve not followed any parliamentary debates for a long time. Why? Because like the medical industry, it’s corrupt at the top and very little good comes from it, and those at the very top will ensure they get the result they want. So what’s the point in listening/watching? We’re now in an age where we have to take full responsibility for ourselves because we can’t rely on those who ‘govern’ us. Just my HO.

Hi Anne,

Thanks for the kind words, they're very much appreciated.

Re - the book, feedback I've had indicates that people either love it or think it's New Age nonsense, like I did initially. The author is a devout Christian so I suspect his beliefs won't match yours, but I don't think that matters. I have no religious affiliations but it helped me tremendously. So much so that I went on to do a comprehensive study course called 'the body code'. However, in my experience, all the numerous physical things that the course covers almost always end up being related to emotional issues. So for most purposes, the book will suffice.

Hi everyone and thanks for this post Roger,

i have taken a look at the book you recommend and it looks very interesting. I do believe that holding on to our emotions can hold us back in life and can affect our physical health. I am into Buddhism and find my Buddhist books so helpful in learning to face up to and accept the way we are feeling emotionally. I have read many self-help books over the years as well as having many hours of counselling but always end up going back to my Buddhism books. It's great that this book has been so helpful in your recovery. Thanks for all the posts about your recovery. I am still working my way through them! And thanks for all the support you give to everyone on the forum.

Hi chill,

First, it's good to see you posting - two great support posts I've just read.

It's also great that you have a supportive husband. I was lucky in that regard, though in my case it was a wife  smile. It really can make all the difference when you're getting empathy from a partner.

I hope yoiu find 'the emotion code' helpful. I certainly did, but I know many people can't get their heads around what he's saying - initially, it sounds like New Age crap, but it isn't.

I hope your recovery comes sooner rather than later, but not too soon, we need members like you  smile. Just kidding, if we lose you because you've recovered, I'll be delighted!

Firstly, ditto to all the above in your post, you are describing exactly how i feel!  Was dx with CFS in 2010, but had to ask the doctor if he thought that was what it was, most GPs have very little understanding or knowledge of it.  I recovered after about 2 years and have just been re diagnosed, i have had a rough time, major surgery 18 months ago and again in january and i think it triggered my CFS, so am currently trying to figure out how to un-trigger it!

I hope you get some help, change GPs if you dont get anything constructive, just saying they cant find anything wrong when you feel as we do is an insult really, so try and find a doctor who is willing to actually help. Dr Sarah Myhill does have some amazing advice on her website and she also has written a book called "mitochondria not hypochondria" which is very useful in my opinion.

Take care
