Why Are Doctors Skeptical & Unhelpful about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?
By: Julie Rehmeyer | April 23, 2014
My neurologist’s face was blank as he pronounced, “We don’t understand it very well.” He could recommend no tests, no treatments, no other doctors. I came to understand that for him, “chronic fatigue syndrome” meant “I can’t help you.”
Six Common Misconceptions about the Chronically Ill
Misconception #1: If people look fine, they must feel fine.
Whether healthy or sick, it’s good for most people’s morale to try and look nice when they go out. I go out so seldom that I make an effort to look my best when I do.

RECIPE: Decadent But Healthy Mini Lemon Cheesecakes (Vegan!) BY ALLISON DAY
Ingredients for Crust
- 6 pitted dates
- 1/2 cup gluten-free/wheat-free rolled oats or unsweetened coconut flakes
- 1 Tbsp. water, if dates are very dry
- pinch of sea salt
Ingredients for Filling
- 1 cup soaked cashews
- 1 apple, peeled, cored and diced
- 1/4 cup water
- 3 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted
- 2 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
- 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
- 1 tsp. lemon zest
- 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- pinch of sea salt
Line a 12-cup muffin pan with 10 muffin papers.
For the crust, pulse all ingredients in a blender or food processor until sticky and fully combined. Crumble mixture into the bottom of the muffin papers, dividing evenly.
For the filling, add all ingredients to a blender or food processor and purée until creamy and smooth (about 1-2 minutes). Pour filling over top of the crust, diving evenly. Freeze for 2 hours, until firm.
The cheesecakes can be kept in the freezer for 1 month. These will melt if left at room temperature, so keep frozen until you’re ready to eat. You can top them with seasonal fruit or enjoy unadorned — either way, they’re delicious!
