    Thanks Village Life for the reminder. A quote that I recently read:: 'If you feel your lamp is lit: wonderful. Because it should be lit. Know. Do everything to make sure that your lamp is lit, that it stays lit. And make sure that there is never darkness in your room." P. Rawat
    Although, in some of my moments or hours of despair, I sometimes loose focus, forget the option is there. Each breath is a reminder that despite being so ill +15 years, am still capable of heartfelt joy. It is human to forget and it is beyond kindness to reminded by others who know._SueC

    It would be very nice if the link to this video was sent to all of the presented researchers and physicians. The more that these "ANGELS" see of the "HOPE" that we place in their science and dedication has to provide them with more energy do it right the first time, deeg deeper for the cause and search further for the cure!

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!!!!!:thumbsup:

    I hope the WPI saw the video......that's a great idea to give it to the researchers. I'm sure it would perk them up...

    I agree with august 59. The people in the video who are working for us, often against incredible pressure, ridicule and risk to their careers, all need to see this and know how much they are appreciated by us. How can we make this happen?

    Thanks Hope love light - I started it on the Lifestyle management Forum :D

    I use these quotes every day to orient me in this battle. They can be very helpful for my peace of mind and happiness.

    Thanks for the idea Sue C

    Thanks Cort, Not too far away now and I will fight every step of the way - pronounced psychiatric by 4 docters in A & E 4 years ago and GP practice trying to convince themselves one way or the other despite passings out. None will go through all that again as far as I'm concerned.

    Light a Candle for ME/CFS Sufferers - Inspiring Video
    December 27, 2010


    As the new year approaches, watch the "Light a Candle" for ME/CFS video (www.youtube.com/watch?v=RAivZPc4LdQ&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL), dedicated to the world's patients and thanking each of the scores of dedicated scientists and clinicians who continue to put their 'skin in the game' to advance a true biomedical understanding of ME/CFS causes, effects, tests, and treatment.

    I, too, think this is a wonderful idea. I wonder if Villagelife has thought of doing that. Or perhaps she needs help and email addresses etc. Perhaps someone can contact her?
