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.

    Hi Gregf,

    I respect your opinion that XMRV will be proven as the agent affecting ME patients. It has not yet been scientifically accepted. Hopefully soon we will get a more definitive answer. From my readings, and I may be wrong, they pretty much established that it is not a sexually acquired illness. They are more concentrating on it being communicable through blood. That is why they put out the warning about ME patients not donating blood. I think that we see a lot more combinations of parent and child or siblings coming down with ME than partners.

    All the best,
    Nielk

    I understand. I also would be very suspicious of a doctor who says he has the cure for ME. I would run the other way. I just don't want you or others attributing these words to Dr. Enlander. He was grossly misquoted in the press and that's a shame but, sometimes that's the way the press likes to "sensationalize". I have heard and read that Dr. Enlander said that he was misquoted and I knowing him, fully believe it because he NEVER claims he can cure anyone of this illness. He can help and they feel better and that's only 30% of his patient group and only the ones who have come to him before they were severely affected.
