: her senior year. She has had CFC since she was 16 and is now in bed 18-20 hours a day.
: She has seen many doctors and specialists. Her basic problem is low blood pressure- hypotension.
: I am concerned about her general health- she gets no exercise and does not eat or drink on a regular
: or sufficient basis. Occasionally, she wil go to a movie or eat out with us. So far she is not depressed,
: according to her psychologist. She has no close friends. She is an excellent writer, but apparently this
: is too dificult. Her only recreation is reading, TV and the internet- looking at research on CFS.
: She loves animals and is a vegetarian and environmentalist at heart.

: It would be nice if she could chat with other young adults with CFS.

: I'd like to hear from parents facing similar problems and hopefully hear about some ideas to
: help us cope and my daughter get better.

: Its puzzling to me that her doctors don't seem overly concerned about her situation
: and health risk cause by her lack of regular exercise and nourishment.

: Bob
Try alternative medicine. Traditional chinese medicine, acupuncture and herbs. Get an experienced tcm doctor.
I have cfs along with my 2 daughters 15, 27. We all get acupuncture and herbs weekly. My daughters have made major improvement. I am better but have a way to go.
