    I'm sure those people you're in touch with are most grateful not to be alone in the dark.

    Leopardtail,

    1975 -- that is a good long time to have been sick. And no computer or internet makes the days very long and dark indeed. I hope things are easier in some ways now than they were back then.

    Meandthecat,

    Not mere ramblings, and not an old fool.:)

    I think one thing this illness has done for me is that I can more readily sense when someone is ill or suffering. And while I was always a pretty kind hearted sort, after my own sickness, it becomes paramount to do something if I can, I know how terrible the suffering can be. Tough way to get greater sensitivity but it is a good thing to have. I think many of us have had this "gift" given to them, and we feel compelled to spread it around, limited though we may be.

    Having a diagnosis made the difference, I only got it recently. The point was I had know way to 'learn the meme'.

    Thanks Jody for your reply. I have given up on medical help here in Tenerife and now successfully SKYPE with an excellent GP I came across on mainland Spain when we lived there 8 years ago. He is an English GP with an enlightened outlook and experienced with M.E and now lives i New Zealand. Thank God for the PC and the Internet and Skype!.

    Thanks Lookinglass,

    Where would we be without the internet? I hope you make great headway with your doctor.
