Hi, I'm new here but read alot about ME and XMRV. I haven't been tested yet but I'm onehundred percent sure I have it since I have all the symptoms. I have had ME since birth and was only recently diagnosed with it. (Funny thing is that no doctors in this country could figure it out, but my friend thought of ME and turned out to be right.) My question is how many others there are out there that was BORN with ME? I can't be the only one.. And have you also had trouble gtting up in the mornings, going to school and missing out an education in adult life? How did it affect you? have you been able to work at all? Do you have the energy to have friends or are you alone? My reason for asking is that I've been in contact with a scientist from this country and he said it was very rare to have been born with it, and therefor I wonder if any of you are out there?
