ME/CFS Recovery Stories: Patient ME/CFS Stories with a difference!

ME/CFS Recovery Stories:
Patient ME/CFS Stories with a difference!

Suffering an 'incurable' disease like ME/CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) can be very difficult, so often people seek ME/CFS stories to learn what it is is like for others to be living with ME/CFS, but sadly, there are not enough ME/CFS recovery stories being shared on the internet.

This page shares ME/CFS stories with a difference.  These stories don't just focus on what it is like to live with ME/CFS, how people endure the lack of understanding from family, friends and even health professionals, but it focusses on how people found their ME/CFS recovery strategy or 'cure' to recover their health.

So every ME/CFS story here, is in fact a ME/CFS recovery story and every story is different.

When I was sick, one of the most upsetting things was not hearing other people recover from ME/CFS, so I believed it wasn't possible. (because we all know there isn't a one fits all cure for ME/CFS!) Hence one of the things I really wanted to do was collect and share ME/CFS Recovery Stories to give hope to people still suffering with this illness.

If you know someone who has recovered from ME/CFS, please ask them to contact me to share their story or if you yourself have recovered from ME/CFS, please contact me directly here.

Besides ME/CFS recovery stories, I also share stories of recovery from Fibromyalgia, PVFS, POTS, MCS and other similar syndromes.  You can see the full list of recovery interviews and recovery stories.

Best wishes,

Dan
