I ask because a few times recently someone in my family has gotten sick with like a normal cold or mild illness, and then I've caught it and been way, way worse than them. This disturbs me to no end! It's one thing being generally tired, but if my immune system is compromised, I don't know how I'd do going back to school, etc.. The other thing that bothers me is that some people think CFS is due to an overactive immune system that's trying to attack a pathogen that's not there, but some think it's due to a weakened immune system. So treating the immune system one way or the other could fuck it up if you're wrong about which it is. What do you guys think? /what's your experience?
