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.

    From an article in the Wall Street Journal yesterday:

    http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704792104575264600619273586.html?mod=rss_Health

    The article talks about various threats to the blood supply, methods of screening blood, pathogen-reduction technology, and screening of potential donors.

    Lesley,

    Thanks for the posting and link.

    Very good that the WSJ is keeping the critical XMRV blood supply issue and ME/CFS in the news.

    Even so, I keep getting the feeling that the name "Chronic Fatigue Syndrome" doesn't help much. "Oh, so I get some blood that makes me tired sometimes and I get to stay home from work." It just doesn't seem to do justice to what having the disease really is (of course), or why it really matters it stay out of the blood supply.

    My acupuncturist/MD uses the term CFIDS: Chronic Fatigue Immune Deficiency Syndrome. I'm working on switching to that; it may not be ideal, but it's a heck of a lot more descriptive.
