    I suspect my mother may have had some sort of postnatal depression after having me.
    But of course, there could never be anything wrong with her.:angel:
    It was all my fault.
    I did it to her deliberately; :wide-eyed: I was an evil baby; :devil: she'd been given the wrong one.:rolleyes:

    So happy that someone asked this. I have been thinking a lot about this topic lately. I was born premature via C-section. I also was not breastfed because my Mom was very ill with some sort of flu, developed toxemia and was placed under quarantine for several weeks.

    I have been hearing more and more lately about immunity and the importance of breastfeeding. I really wonder if this has played a part in this illness. Has anyone thought of doing a breastfed vs. non-breastfed poll?

    Born by C-section? No idea.
    Breastfed? No idea.

    My father even had trouble remembering what time of day I was born when I asked him.

    Ever had the feeling no one gives a $£%& about you...?

    i was C section and not breastfed. i have always suspected that this has played some kind of role in my developing this illness. i have read that breastfed children have an IQ 5 points higher, on average, than non-breastfed children. i also had several ear infections as a child and always had a problem with fungal infections in general.

    also had tonsils and adenoids taken out at a very young age....i think they make important immune cells.

    Would it be possible to add to, or make a new poll associated to this thread?

    I think there are two important factors that could be added that could make the normal birth vs C-section interesting:

    1) Is the mom sick with ME CFS too?
    2) Did the mom have a blood transfusion before the ME CFS sufferer was born.
