Since I have been bed bound for a few months so far because my legs collapse under the weight of my upper weight and they're always numb and the muscles are always contracted and in pain, the doctor and the social services rented gave me a wheelchair to move around. Now the problem is that my relatives either thinks that I'm giving up and not fighting enough (how presumptous are people who think they know better than you how much you're fighting?!) or that the dignoses is wrong because no one with CFS ends up in a chairwheel even if temporary. What do you think? Is is really weird and unusual for someone with CFS to use a wheelchair during a period of extreme leg weakness and PEM symptoms? Or maybe I can show my relative few resources and articles that explain that the use of a wheelchair is common in CFS? Happy Holidays!
