An open letter to people WITHOUT CFS


This letter also tells my experience. It is painful and lead us (CFS sufferers) to social isolation.
I believe all these misunderstanding come from a "common sense" --- that is people's unknown chronic illnesses are usually caused by their depression. And this "common sense" I believe is come from a medical name "hypochondria" --- a name that was invented by doctors (or medical scientists) at the moment when they could not give a diagnose to their patients who claimed they were ill, because blaming to patients' mind was much easier than blaming science (as if medical science is perfect, no need to have any further progress).
So here we go, better to see a psychiatrist instead.
