People say ‘Oh, I think I had that last week’ – Lisa battles illness and stigma
Like many sufferers of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), Lisa Whight lives with the wearisome symptom of being disbelieved.
“I’ve heard it all,” says the 53-year-old former funeral arranger, who has been out of work for six years.
“Because there is no disability to see – unless someone is using walking sticks – it tends to not be taken seriously.
“Sadly, even some people in the medical profession don’t accept it. Years ago it was known as ‘yuppie flu’.
“I’ve had people say to me: ‘Oh, I think I had that last week’.”
