My daughter who is 14 had Glandular Fever last June, and after exhaustive tests by the Infectious diseases team at our local hospital, was diagnosed with CFS. She was referred to the CFS service in the same hospital, but after the initial consultation, they refused to continue seeing her as it is an Adult service. I have hit a brick wall! The GP has no suggestions, there is no Childrens' service in our area for treatment of CFS (the nearest NHS unit is 120 miles away), and I am struggling to find even a Private Psychologist who specialises in CBT and children. Has anyone else had the same brick wall experience? My daughter has been to school for a total of 8 days since last June! Does anyone have a good experience of CBT? She doesn't seem to be getting any better, spends most of her time lying down and I am convinced she is now depressed. Any advice or comments welcome as we feel like we are flailing around in the dark.
