Where are you getting this idea? Lots of us don't work part time, much less in our chosen professions -- certainly not enough to support ourselves. Many people with ME/CFS are dependent on family or public aid. You're basing your own opinion on what? That you haven't met many? So that means doctors and lawyers don't get it? Exactly how many people have you met with CCC or ICC defined ME/CFS? And why, if you haven't met many doctors and lawyers who have it, would you think they're working? If you haven't met them, how do you know what they're doing?
