What I Learned In the Last 3 Days about Hospitals and CFS

September 25, 2010 at 10:54pm

1) If you have a serious, controversial illness and feel that your health and/or life are in danger, it is very likely that it is not in your best interest to go to the hospital.
2) If you do go to a hospital, do not be honest about your health history or mention this controversial illness.
3) If you are backed in a corner, and the truth of your illness comes out, the quality of your care will immediately plummet and every effort will be made to have you released immediately.
4) If you happen to have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and the hospital finds out, you will more than likely get sicker and feel worse each day that you are hospitalized.
5) If you are having one of the shittiest days of your life, having strong, amazing family and friends around you is priceless.

Thank you Mom, Dad, Abby, Clayton, and Rochelle.

  1. Thanks for sharing such useful information. People with chronic fatigue syndrome may have flare-ups and remissions or may have constant symptoms with very little day-to-day change.
