So... doctors who seemingly will are also patients might have a taste of what ‘post-viral medicine’ has to offer: mindfulness, meditation, CBT and ‘It might take a few months to recover’. They may be offered a spot in the specialist ME clinics if in the uk, where they might get briefed on how to cope and how to self-manage. Or in a clinic nearby, they would learn about central sensitization, about good posture and how to do acupressure. it is essential that physicians who are in socialized health care systems be receiving the same care as the other commoners, and observe how they feel in that process. It may means months on a wait list. (In my early years as an obstetrical nurse, there was this doctor who tore her meniscus on a ski accident. There was a 2 year wait to see the orthopedist, but she went to the doctor and he booked her surgery for the end of the week) Welcome to our disease. We as patients living with ME have tried really hard In the last 30 years to get attention for this disease. And here we are.
