1989- The following video contains various clips from the 80s TV show Golden Girls. Dorothy has ME/CFS and the illness is described very well. Great screenwriting. Apparently, Susan Harris, the show’s producer, had ME/CFS. The clips are funny and sad at the same time- this show aired in 1989, and now, almost 25 years later, the same ‘scenes’ are still being relived in doctors’ offices. It’s sad to see that the same perceptions about the illness are still prevalent. Nothing seems to have changed. “Sick and Tired” Golden Girls, 1989
