Book Review: What Nurses Know . . . Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

by Lorraine Steefel,

There is a glossary in the back, so checkout that out if some of the acronyms aren't working for you.

This book is from a layman's perspective.  Lorraine is a nurse, but more importantly she is the mother of a daughter who suffers from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
After reading the first few chapters I was discouraged that there wasn't much information for an individual suffering from the problem, and how individually we can support ourselves.  Chapter nine addresses advocacy.  It gives some insight in approaching others about your own problems.  It also talks about advocacy in school.  If you have a child with any kind of issue that affects there learning you should know about the IDEA, and IEP's.  Most educators won't tell you about them, because it costs them money. 

I'm looking forward to reading more books from this line "What Nurse Know . . . "
