Lessons from ME/CFS: Finding Meaning in the Suffering
If you're aware of my previous articles here at Phoenix Rising then it's pretty clear that I don't generally spend my time musing upon the philosophy of the disease. I find it better to spend my time reading research and trying my best to break it down to its core elements and write...

    I can open the adds, but not the comment page.

    My favorite one is the last one--World.

    Thanks to all of you who did such an excellent job on this campaign! :victory::victory::victory:
    I have been crashed all week, so I just finally got around to looking at them and I'm glad I did.

    If you use AT&T, then you may be having a problem accessing. Cort, I can e-mail them directly to you if you want. Anyone wanting that, send me e-mail at editor@claynews.net

    As for the comment page, after you have registered, you may have to enter another password to enter a thread. That password is "action".

    I think that the current ads are too "wordy" and use of more images would be good -- I like Ad #2 with "Jim" since it shows a real person living with the consequences of ME/CFS. I agree with the people who say that the ad needs to be aimed more at "healthy" people re: concerns abut the blood supply and how little we know about how this illness might be transmitted if it is a virus.

    I noticed that a website is listed. Perhaps something should say at the bottom "For more info, go to www.XXX.org." - where XXX is the site name you want to use and the link should have more facts about XMRV.

    I also suggest that someone contact Dr. Lenny Jason (if you haven't already) about using his study of deaths among people with ME/CFS; I think the study has been misquoted/ misunderstood many times and if you are going to use the results from his study, it should be as honest about the study's conclusions as possible.
