How Can I Know If I Have ME?

Anyone can have ME/Cfs. However, while most commonly found in elderly individuals aged between 40 and 60, the condition affects younger adults, children, teenagers, and even adults of all ages. Among elderly individuals, women are more frequently affected than men. White individuals are also diagnosed more frequently than other races and ethnicity.


ME is not a disease that last a long time, and can either be short lived or fatal. It can affect people in their forties, fifties, sixties, seventies, and even in their eighties. For some individuals it may be a short lived illness that flares up at times and goes away after a while. For others, it may take a very long time for any noticeable improvement to be noticed. For some, it is so severe that they must take very strong medications for it, and in many cases, multiple drugs for months or even years.

Many of those who are diagnosed with ME have had symptoms and signs of the illness for many years and are still suffering from them today. If someone in your family has been diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome, you should make sure to get a physical and health check up as soon as possible, to find out if the symptoms you are experiencing are indeed caused by ME. Also, keep in mind that if the symptoms seem similar to those of ME, they probably are.

The most common symptoms of ME include persistent muscle pain or weakness, shortness of breath, increased tiredness, loss of appetite, muscle weakness or fatigue, headaches, irritability, depression, emotional upsets, memory problems, flu-like symptoms, feelings of hopelessness or unreasonable fear, numbness or tingling in the hands and feet, inability to concentrate, body aches or pain, feelings of extreme fatigue, and muscle weakness. Those who get sick with ME are also likely to experience frequent infections, as well as fevers, dizziness and sweating. Those who are more severely ill with ME often have difficulty breathing, which can lead to shortness of breath and eventually to death. Someone who is sick with ME may be prone to depression or have trouble functioning normally. Most significantly, people with ME can become depressed, which can prevent them from getting better or help them from getting better when they do get better.

If you have any of the symptoms of ME listed above, you need to discuss them with your doctor. In fact, it would be a good idea to discuss these symptoms with your physician even if you don’t think you have ME. He is an auto-immune disorder, and it has been linked to an array of illnesses including Fibromyalgia (FMS) and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). There are several theories as to why this happens, but there isn’t one specific cause. There are several different body systems that are affected by ME, but they can generally be grouped into three major categories.

When it comes to the way someone might deal with the symptoms of ME, those dealing with ME will often find themselves having problems with their emotions, mental health and relationships. People who have ME tend to be depressed and feel hopeless, and often have low self-esteem and problems with identifying and connecting with other people. Those with ME might also suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome, which is characterized by symptoms such as severe muscle pain, headaches, fever, night sweats and malaise, depression, irritability, and memory loss.

The Love Language of Feelings of Attraction

Love is a word that is used so often these days it’s easy to lose sight of what it means. Many people believe they have ‘love’ when they really just have lust or a mixture of lust and love. The difference is that in the immortal words of The Purple Rose, ‘I only love you for you.’ In The Purple Rose, Shakespeare wrote that Othello has not yet learned the art of love, and as a result has not been rewarded with true love. This is the true meaning of love, though many people confuse the notion of love with lust.


Love, on the other hand, is quite different. Love encompasses a far wider range of positive and negative emotional and psychological states, from the blissful, intimate bliss, the strongest imaginable personal trait, the most profound interpersonal connection, to the least intimate form of infatuation. True love is not lust or infatuation. It is more complex than that. True love involves feelings of attraction, an emotion that can be strong enough to cause one to move mountains, but that can also be weak enough to lead to a lasting friendship or even a meaningful relationship.

Loving someone comes down to being able to feel deeply for them, to fully understand their needs and wants, their dreams and their passions. It also involves an understanding of the differences between people, and a commitment to treat all people with kindness and respect. All humans need love and friendship and a fulfilling and meaningful relationship will foster those feelings and create a well-balanced emotional state. Those who are deeply in love will be happy and contented – physically and emotionally. They will have positive relationships with others and will be well-nourished in all areas of their lives.

When two people enter into a romantic relationship, they are creating a deep and special connection. In order to sustain such a bond, two people need to be open and honest with one another about their feelings and desires. Sharing is key to creating intimacy and true love. Sharing one’s deepest thoughts and emotions with another person is an essential part of building a loving relationship. However, just sharing those thoughts and feelings will not result in intimacy.

True love and romance are often fueled by feelings of attraction, rather than lust. Many couples enjoy the feelings of attraction when first beginning a relationship, but they quickly learn that they need to tread carefully because these feelings become an addiction and can become a source of insecurity for both partners. Intimacy occurs when two people develop a close and intimate relationship based on feelings of attraction without any underlying desire to become romantically involved in another person. When one partner is having an affair, that partner is not only risking the potential intimacy of their new relationship, but also their own sense of shame and guilt. Partners who cheat often do so because they do not feel a strong enough sense of attraction to share their deepest thoughts and feelings with another person.

To ensure that your relationship grows to the next level of love and romance, you must establish a loving and intimate bond based on feelings of attraction and desire for your partner. Intimacy should occur naturally over time, rather than being rushed or forced. It usually does not start as a physical relationship. Physical touch can sometimes signal the start of a physical relationship, but it should not be an immediate focus for either partner. In order for your relationship to grow and reach its fullest potential you must establish and practice your partner’s love language – the love language of feelings of attraction.
