I attended my first appointment with the Chronic Fatigue Clinic today. I finally have an official diagnosis of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (also known as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis). At last!
I was referred to the CFS clinic by my doctor about 5 months ago, but the waiting lists are long. I've been searching for help online in the meantime and just doing what I can to manage alone.
The clinic is about 45 minutes away and requires a couple of changeovers by bus, so a dear friend travelled across the city to accompany me.
