Hi my name is Miriam and I'm 14.5 I have had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for 5 years, the syndrome has made my life a liveing hell on some days. I have lost all my friends and have lost many a hour of school time.
I hope to get better before going to Uni or Tafe

In Hope Miriam


I've have found a link between the Syndrome and females starting(10years) and stoping(50years) they menstruation cycle.

I've has found that the syndrome starts about a year after starting the menstruation cycle.

More studies are needed

And more research in to the male side of things

I don't see any difference between the symptoms kids get and that of adults. I came down with CFS when I was 20 and I had all the symptoms the article reports and more. I am much more ill and bedridden and in more pain now and I continue to get progressively worse even after 7 months on Valcyte.

This disease can affect anyone, child or adult severely or mildly, just like any other disease. It's the severity that matters, not how old a person or is or even how long they've had it.

You know, after rereading what you wrote Miriam, I'm feeling hopeful that maybe I will feel better in the future. I'm sorry that you're also stricken by this terrible illness.

dear miriam and fogggygyrl cfc fibro lupus ar any of these fancy diagnostic names they are all academic invention for what they dont know or understand or dont want us to know.what you have and billions of others is called chronic candida or yeast infection,for which there is no cure you can only control it with noncandidal diet for life.see <yeast containing foods/allergy> read all my comments carefully and turn your diet upside down,and in few weeks you will see improvement,but dont do same mistake as others do as soon they feel better they go back on wrong diet,and blaiming dr fungus for it.what you have to understand once candidaly infected one gets addicted to candidal food untill candida destroys him her.i do not call it disease i call it self inflicted injury with wrong food.i call cancer mushrooms and truffles of human body as they are product of fungal foods.stop worshiping science,these guys dying from same diseases they curing us from,finaly you cant cure or operate wrong diet.
