How to Prove to Your Doctor You've Got Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) And Are Not Just Depressed

So you’re fatigued much of the time, can’t exercise without symptoms, wake up like a leaden lump no matter how much sleep you get, feel confused and disoriented a lot, and aren’t into beating yourself up a lot, you have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome – not depression. (If you experience shortness of breath you might want to bring that up also.)

There's also the point that depressed people tend to find no joy in and don't want to do things. Those with ME/CFS want to, wish to, if only we could. That alone tends to clearly differentiate between the two. Unless, of course, you have ME/CFS AND are depressed. (Been there too.)
