Okay, folks, I'm claiming a point for not throwing things. Called a doctor that had been recommended to me, as our health care got involuntarily changed the 1st of the year. Under "major complaint" I said CFS/ME, and immediately got told that it's bull****. That "Since that silly movie came out, everyone thinks they have it". When I cited statistics, and symptoms, I got told that "it's just fibro. Exercise more". He never asked what I had been doing for exercise (I live on a ranch--weight lifting used to be a 60 pound hay bale in each hand). Cleaning stalls was good cardio, by the time you got it cleaned up. Then, when I iterate that, quite basically, my friends with diagnosed fibro feel BETTER with exercise, while I end up in severe pain with 1/2 the exertion, he tells me that I'm not exercising enough. Needless to say, I'm not going back. But how do others deal with this prejudice and ignorance?
