Looking Ahead to Change: Little by Little
I don't make New Year's Resolutions. I don't think I ever really did, but the last decade or two would have been enough to stifle that impulse. I've just been too aware that I don't have that much control over what happens in my life.

    (When talking about latex allergy)

    Personally I think intelligent replies, ideally ones that quote research, could be useful. I know some people might disagree so I'm not going to defend the suggestion - have better things to do.

    One can comment below or one can even send a letter to the editor http://www.chicagoflame.com/home/lettertotheeditor/ - I think the latter would be better with at least reference of some sort

    these poor people. from jihadist terrorists to whiny needy depressed compainers. Another incompetent who needs to use such false inflammatory language to get anyone to listen to and/or respond to them?

    I don't want to give them a click so I don't know what the chicagoflame is. If I decide that I have any energy to try to deal with such a loser, I think my strategy will be, as tom recommends as well, to send a letter directly to the editor - and maybe the owner, and other high-ups - with a very concise, referenced letter deploring their sponsorship of such pejorative ideas.

    For anyone else who doesn't want to click, here are a few details.

    The author is a medical doctor.

    Oh, If, don't click!

    What a sad and sorry waste of space that is.

    Truly!

    I have to go wash my eyes out!

    This is what we're up against. This is why we need a hard-hitting Patient Support Group that works to educate the doctors about CFS and what it truly is like with comments like Dr. Judy makes.
