Dealing With Social Stigma & Medical Scepticism...
The social stigma attached to having a condition
like ME/CFS means that some people may think that it's all in your
mind. But it most definitely is not.
In fact, even though ME/CFS has been recognised by the United Kingdom
(UK) government as a very real and serious bio-chemical condition,
there is still alot of medical
scepticism out there. Sadly, many ME/CFS sufferers have reported
that they have not received the support they need from their doctor.
And unfortunately, some sufferers have even said that they have
been given the wrong
diagnosis or incorrect medical advice.
But the fact is, ME/CFS does exist. You are going
through it. And you and your family are NOT alone.
There is support out there - for you and the people around

Having the understanding and support of your loved ones can really
make the world of difference to a sufferer. But this invisible
illness can be very hard to understand,
especially if you have never had any direct experience of ME/CFS
yourself. Many friends and relatives of sufferers find it difficult
to accept, acknowledge and/or understand why their loved one has
become so ill and weak.
