I’m not thinking modern medicine! I’m thinking more about the times when the local herbalist was all there was, then they didn’t have a glue about which bit was wrong, so they treated a person, but that is beside the point, the point I was trying to make was that Doctors, on the whole see somebody with more than 2 or 3 “complaints” and simply assume it has to be mental, made up or attention seeking, just because they are so use to looking at bits and not whole people. Im afraid that due to my dyslexia I’m not that good at expressing myself in writing.
Our modern Medication is wonderful, millions are alive because of it, but as you say when it comes to illness like ME, POTS, FM, IBS etc they really don’t have much to offer. Your right it is the bad attitudes of miss understanding, and off course that our type of problem dose not call the attention of big drug firms, who could make lots of money out of a wonder drug, that stops a lot of the research. But saying that thankfully there are Doctors and researchers out there who do believe us and are going full out to help, like Dr Diana, and others. I am very grateful to them, one day our voice will be herd. soon I hope, as you say it is a very complex set of illnesses.
