    I was diagnosed in 1993 as a young woman in my early 20's- I can't believe I am now 50 and there is still no treatment.

    I hear ya, @hellytheelephant !

    Illness onset Jan. 1990 at age 29 for me. Then it was five years before I was even diagnosed.

    So, yes, it does seem unreal that there has been so little research and so little is known about ME/CFS.

    In fact, most of the time my medical care is like that old vaudeville joke:

    Patient: Doctor, it hurts when I do this!
    Doctor: Then don't do it!

    I guess I'm lucky because at least that's better than CBT/GET:

    Patient: Doctor, it hurts when I do this!
    Doctor: Are you sure? Maybe you just have a phobia? Try doing even MORE!
