Currently I'm creating a blog to gather together people's experiences with chronic illnesses, from IBS to M.E/CFS (focusing mainly on M.E/CFS and fibro), and I would like to make a page with some visible material showing different things. The following questions are my first set of charts I wish to make. I understand some of them re very personal, so please don't feel you have to answer them all. If they're not applicable t you can you simply put "NA" by the number? 1. Does alcohol consumption effect your symptoms? 2. Have you been diagnosed with a mental health problem such as depression or anxiety since your Chronic illness diagnosis? 3. Have you found your GP (regular practice doctor) to be understanding? 4. Have you been denied monetary support or disability allowance? 5. How far do you have to travel to get to the clinic that helps you? 6. Have you had to drop out of school, college or university? 7. Have you been denied certain medication due to cost and/or age? 8. Do you believe the medical care you receive is adequate? 9. Have you considered taking your own life since developing your chronic illness?
