    One of the reasons that I'm happy to see Donnica Moore do this and not Dr Peterson is that Dr. Oz is accustomed to being in charge - cutting someone's heart open is not a democratic activity.

    I would not like to see Dr Peterson be rushed through a segment on ME/CFS when he has given decades of his life to untying this dreadful knot. Dr Peterson's involvement is deserving of a Frontline documentary.

    Thank you, thank you, Dr Peterson!

    Judy Mikovits is not definitive... yet, and I don't know if she will be. There is the usual phone tag thing going on right now btwn WPI and the OZ people.

    Dr Moore is another amazing person in this field.

    Like Dr Friedman, she just replied to me as well - responding to the content of my email, not just sending a generic response.

    I hope it's ok to post her response (email etiquette anyone??? she asks after doing it now for the 2nd time) It's my bolds and spacing

    More tears in my eyes. I'm so impressed by her.

    I'm impressed that the Oz team reached out to her. It appears that they are being responsive to the feedback on the ill-informed factually incorrect and harmful show they did on normal fatigue with ME/CFS mixed in. It seems that they are researching and getting their facts right this time. Bravo. And bravo for a speedy correction. It;s restoring the faith I had in the integrity of the show.

    Fri Nov 20 - that's next Friday. I'll be glued to the tv for sure.

    Geesh - now I'm going to have to email all the people who told me they were going to stop watching Dr Oz and tell them that it looks like he is making up for his blooper and to get them to watch again.

    And how cool is it that they're looking for a patient to test!!!!!:cool:

    Love the idea of coordinating ideas for Donnica on this end. Thank you Marylib for volunteering (accepting being volunteered??). And thank you Koan for agreeing to help - you're so media astute.

    Heading now to look for that thread...........

    Another sweet note from Dr Donnica

    New thread opened up for info to send to Dr Donnica -- please leave your messages for her there.

    In the meantime, here is the sweet reply she sent to my email:

    Thanks for your thoughtful note. I am so sorry to hear of the extent of your illness. My son is also bedridden this week + it breaks my heart. My husband has been sick for the past 6 weeks, but able to work + get around a little. Hang in there! I will continue to try to be.a voice for CFS sufferers + those who love them.

    Donnica Moore asked me about the forum and how to access it.
    I sent her the link(s).

    Hopefully she will join us!

    I can't stop thinking about all this!

    Thanks dreambirdie! I am new here and this forum is keeping me ever hopeful.
    I can't wait to see more and more information in public.

    Good idea, Koan. I THINK SHE GETS IT, and will do what she can to get THE MESSAGE THROUGH.

    And maybe we will see her here. That would be oh so very cool. :cool::cool::)

    Delete thread about questions for Dr Donnica?

    Seems folks are feeling that we don't need to present questions to Dr Donnica, though she at one point requested it? Kind of confused, sorry:confused:

    And it seems now that she knows how to access the forum to see for herself?

    I can delete that thread about questions for her if people feel that is best.

    Hi Marylib--

    I think we don't need to send her anymore personal emails. I don't want to swamp her with these.
    As for the other thread with the questions/suggestions... is there any way to bring those posts over here to this thread to consolidate the info and make it easy to find?

    I'm not sure what is best... just trying to figure it out. If we can't move the posts, then she can read both threads if she wants to.
