I get very annoyed when hearing the public mention ME/CFS by the name ‘Chronic Fatigue’. This selects just one symptom and a really good analogy of this, is that diabetes is not known as ‘Chronic Thirst’, so please stop.  Thank you.


  1. Hey there, thanks for your blog. You might like to check mine out too at

    Have you considered looking inside to find out what it is that annoys you about this? We have no control over other people, only our own reactions. I suffer from an exaggerated need to feel understood, and I think it's part of what causes us suffering. Frankly, I don't care what name people use for the illness... "Chronic Fatigue" describes it pretty well to me.

    Good luck in your recovery!

    Cheers, Graham

  2. Maybe I over did the annoys me part, but was just trying to make a point. Thanks for your blog address. Looking forward to reading it.
