> > Thank you for your answer but there's something that I don't understand. You say that a psychologist hedped you but how ? Is it a cognitive behavioural therapy, psychoanalytic therapy, did you find a reason to your chronic fatigue ? I'm really interested to know if I 'd better treat me with meds or by "talking".
> Sigolene, I believe what I'm recieving is psychanalytical, this is what the receipts say. You sound like you know the difference between the two. I think cognitive is to help a person with coping mechanisms. Now this is just my personal viewpoint, if a person finds themselves unable to cope or overwhelmed by life's bumps than the cogitive therapy would be an asset. Did I find a reason for the CFS? Honestly, I can still only speculate on what brought it on. In my case I think it was a number of things just happened over the years. In the spring of '98, I was unable to work anymore and even by the fall it seemed like I was getting worse instead of better despite not working out of the home. That's I started seeing a psychologist. My family doctor didn't feel this would help, (I've changed doctor's since then). Over the past year and a half I started making slow progress at first to the point now where I believe I'm back to "normal". If you want more in depth details I'll post my email address if you like. I don't know if I answered your question?
yes, you did. I'm going to find a good psychologist, because mine is not helping me actually. thanks.
