Chronic fatigue no bar to this high-achiever

This story from Wahroonga in New South Wales offers the possibility of positive outcomes:

“SHE regularly skipped classes and was lucky to make it to school two days a week but Alyssa Henry overcame chronic fatigue to achieve an outstanding ATAR of 99.85. The Northern Beaches Christian School student from Wahroonga has missed years of schooling since developing the condition when she was nine years old.  She did not attend Year 3, most of Year 8, or Year 9. But this gifted student took it in her stride, studying at home when she felt well enough. Alyssa, 17, was even able to skip Year 5 due to her academic results.”  You can read the whole story by clicking here

Having worked at the Dove Clinic for nearly five years I have learned quite a lot about CFS and the various treatment approaches. I have also known a family member and friends who have experienced the disorder and the many ways in which it manifests itself.
