Since being diagnosed with post viral syndrome in 1994, Frank has remained moderately to severely affected by this illness. In recent years, he was struggling with a relapse and was experiencing a slow deterioration in his health.
Things changed dramatically in September 2019 when he had a stroke. In a remarkable turn of events, he defied medical expectations and a seemingly miraculous return to robust health resulted.
CFS is a debilitating illness that not only affects the patient, but also family and friends. Therefore, Frank’s son Nick has included his thoughts on what it is like to live with a father who has this invisible chronic illness.
This book is the result of over two decades of personal experiences and research into chronic fatigue/pain disorders. These are a range of controversial illnesses commonly referred to as: post viral syndrome (PVS), myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), chronic fatigue immune dysfunction syndrome (CFIDS), chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), systemic exertion intolerance disease (SEID) and fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS).
