New era for ME/CFS research as top cytokine study attracts media headlines
The immune systems of patients who have recently developed ME/CFS look markedly different from those who have been ill for much longer, according to a major new study from Drs. Ian Lipkin and Mady Hornig at Columbia University. This shift in immune function hadn’t been seen before.

    I've been suffering from severe anxiety recently, mostly due to fear that my illness is all my imagination + within my control

    I've been diagnosed 4 14 years by Dr franklin, dr Mitchell, dr sprightly + dr weir

    I test @50% on the mitochondria scale. But shortly after these my GP surgery asked me to deregulatory myself

    I was severely abused by my locall nhs as a child + now live in a nursing home which hi. Find a struggle. Not everyone's sympathetic + some of their comments + gossip burns me up

    I am so sorry to hear about your struggles Rosa, I used to have very severe anxiety too, 6 hour long panic attacks and agoraphobia to a degree...

    I used a book called At Last a Life by Paul David and fully recovered though! It would be pretty helpful but I hope you get the help you need, trauma is very important to work through if it still upsets you..

    Love,

    Todd

    Sorry to hear of you being in a nursing home and having anxiety.

    Check out Emotional Freedom Technique. It's free to learn and I find it very helpful for anxiety and rapidly healing past trauma. http://eft.mercola.com/

    You might not want to let others see you tapping on your acupressure points though - they might think you're really nuts! :) I actually just lay in bed and imagine myself tapping on the points and it works just as well for me. The key is making up good affirmation statements.
