Lessons from ME/CFS: Finding Meaning in the Suffering
If you're aware of my previous articles here at Phoenix Rising then it's pretty clear that I don't generally spend my time musing upon the philosophy of the disease. I find it better to spend my time reading research and trying my best to break it down to its core elements and write...

    @Firestorm. I believe this thread is still about EBV. If you read through the different posts, I believe the discussion between Forum members brought up some other interesting points/insights. Specifically, the discussion may be touching on ideas about how EBV may be transmitted or reactivated.

    The information I was providing in this thread related to a forum member bringing up thyroiditis (which science may be finding does have a relationship to EBV (i.e. Autoimmune Hashimotos Thyroiditis), as well as how bees, ticks or other arthropods may carry a variety of viruses such as EBV. The further discussion (with reference to a video and a book review) relates to Plum Island, a U.S. Federal Government facility where experimentation has taken place using animals, viruses and bacteria, as well as a short discussion in the video related to zoonotics.

    I believe Anciendaze was responding to something in the video/book review that talked about Lyme Disease and Plum Island (a very controversial topic) that he/she felt warranted a caveat should someone viewing/reading this thread not have a sufficient background in the history/politics of Lyme Disease that they could become concerned/upset by some of the references/hypotheses set forth in the video. While the reference to Lyme disease may not have been specifically on point to EBV, I believe the discussion is still within the context of viruses (i.e. EBV) and how these "wily" things may move around in our population.

    Hope this explanation helps you understand how the discussion occurring on this thread still relates back to that "Wily Virus" EBV, which was the subject of this thread.
