Review: 'Through the Shadowlands’ describes Julie Rehmeyer's ME/CFS Odyssey

    Maybe it's the only thing we can do to help ourselvs. As Lipkin said politicians don't listen to scientists, they listen to people who might vote for them.

    If we think about how close the last US election was, surely the promise of 1million votes from PWC's would be enough to get them seriously thinking.

    Do you think this could work?

    I think it's more promising to join the campaigns to get money out of politics. Then people like us would have a better chance of being heard instead of being lost under the banks and other high-money interest groups.
