Have had M.E for 9 years. 8 of those years i was misdiagnosed as a young boy with an illegitimate term “lethargic depression”. Drs convonced my family it was in my head and i was never given permission to rest and heal. Until last year no one believed me, not even my own family. Only after collapsing and becoming paralysed with fatigue for 24hrs afterward begging my family to help did i find a diagnosis. Yet there is still no help.
