Post Re: How to Help Your Doctor Understand ME/CFS Disability
I had an appointment with my doctor yesterday, and I apparently stumbled into doing the right thing. I didn't just say my fatigue is worse, I said "the day before Thanksgiving I cleaned the house and on Thanksgiving I cooked and baked and had five guests for dinner. I slept for two days after, being awake only 4 or 5 hours during those two days." I put my hair in a french braid yesterday, and I told her that after I did that I had to rest before continuing to get dressed, and that my arms were still burning hours later from holding them up long enough to do the braid. I think she really got it.
