Review: 'Through the Shadowlands’ describes Julie Rehmeyer's ME/CFS Odyssey
I should note at the outset that this review is based on an audio version of the galleys and the epilogue from the finished work. Julie Rehmeyer sent me the final version as a PDF, but for some reason my text to voice software (Kurzweil) had issues with it. I understand that it is...

    Hello,

    Just wondering if anyone else on this forum is in Switzerland. Have you found a doctor who knows ANYTHING about this condition? Where?

    What is happening here to improve doctor awareness and patient rights? As far as I can tell this might just be one of the worst places of all to have this illness.

    Hi awol,

    eric_s is Swiss. Here's his intro post from May 3rd.

    Best wishes,
    Jerry

    PS: If it's any consolation, there are no doctors in Chicago who understand and treat ME/CFS. There are a few integrative doctors who are sympathetic, but they treat ME/CFS is if it were only general fatigue. I'd have to travel to see an experienced ME/CFS doctor. I'm too sick to do that, and I couldn't afford it anyway. :(

    Thanks for the contact Jerry.

    I am sorry to hear that things are bad in Chicago too. It really is a lot to ask of patients that we deal with being sick AND with paying for real research AND with educating doctors all at the same time. Craziness.
