ME/CFS: A disease at war with itself
We can all agree that ME/CFS is a nasty disease, particularly in its severe form, but there are abundant nasty diseases in the world. What is unique and particularly confounding about our disease is that so much controversy surrounds it, and not only surrounds it, but invades it too.

    May 12th has submitted his entry in the Aviva Contest. He has been crashing since the conference in Ottawa and asks for help in spreading the word about the contest, especially to Canadians. Voting begins tomorrow on Oct. 3rd at 12:pM EST. If you have suggestions on any needed word changes in his entry, please let him know. He can edit his project at any time. (He is on Facebook, and I am pretty sure he is on Phoenix Rising, too.) Thanks for your help!

    You can vote every day for 15 days - 15 votes.
    Let's unite in these contests for our people.
    It's the least we can do.
    We don't even have to get out of bed to do it.
    You'll feel good that you did a good deed.

    Hope it will help.
    I think that it helps when people post here thaat they have voted because other people might see it and it bumps the thread.
    So, I voted today and will vote every day.

    Is anyone else having a problem voting? I keep getting the message that I've already voted today...after more than 48 hours! I've logged off and on a few times to no avail...think I'll send them an email.

    567 votes now. Haven't read the rules, etc. to see if this means it has a chance/is in a winning position, or not.

    It might be a good idea to make a comment on the voting page about the value of this project to our ME/CFS, FM, MCS, and GWS communities to be used in the judging phase of the contest. Thanks.
