I am so thankful for this article! I have had ME/CFS for 18 years! I was a personal trainer and bodybuilder when one day I came home feeling badly and could not make it up the stairs to my bedroom! From fit, ultra fit actually, to bedridden in a few days time. I never worked out again. It's been tough and part of the difficulty is the lack of awareness by doctors as well as family! Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is hardly what this illness is about. Neurological symptoms are frightening as well as difficult to treat. Please, please learn and be an advocate for us! We don't have the energy to fight ourselves!
