    What a great piece this is! Thank you Peggy Munson!

    What we say and how we say it matters.

    We all need to speak clearly, carefully and accurately.

    Wow, wow, wow! Class Action Lawsuit!

    I think we have the basis for a class action lawsuit for iotrogenic PTSD!

    In fact is may be no joke, even saw a recent research paper and artcles on whether patients who have a bad experience with doctor visits where they feel either an outright rejection of the disease or symptomology, or even a Dr. who gives credence but is ineffectively giving you same useless experience of the medical system.

    Is there a lawyer in the house?:mad:

    Yes thanks Jen!

    Adams makes some good points at times, but more often than not he's an extremist to an absurd degree, and most definitely didn't even begin to do his homework on this one.

    I also hate the way he uses celebrities deaths to "prove" (not) that big pharma is "always" the enemy.

    While I do try to minimize drug use as much as possible (to lessen stress on the liver, etc.) I agree with Peggy -- what works for some won't work for others, but a combination -- a balance -- of conventional drugs and more natural remedies are often the best answer to help one get by from day to day...

    I love you, Peggy. Too bad this will not change the minds or the actions of the folks who she is challenging any more than it would influence my family. Nothing simple will do that. Maybe nothing at all.

    Peace,

    I think it was very smart. Let's all follow her advice to keep our eyes on the prize and stop to think when we are playing into the hands of those who do us harm to protect their fiefdoms.

    Thank you for posting this, Jenbooks! I always enjoy reading Peggy's writing, and I was actually trying to think of her name yesterday to see if she'd added anything lately. You helped me! I very much appreciated her book Stricken, but I don't know where it is. I think my Mom has it. I'll have to ask her.

    Yes!

    Let's keep in mind that everything we write on this forum and often elsewhere is accessible to anyone, including those who are chomping at the bit to discredit this new research.

    "Actual ME/CFS is, as CFIDS Association CEO Kim (Kenney) McCleary once said, like the first bars of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony:
    you know it when you hear it."


    I love this line. She has a knack for powerful metaphors!

    Hillary Johnson Speech

    Hi Jen, Hi All,

    Thanks Jen for posting this link to Peggy Munson's blog. From this blog, I clicked on "The Why" link to Hillary Johnson's speech she gave in London in May, 2009. I found it quite fascinating (and LONG), but would encourage others here to take a look. It is enough to give any dormant activism tendencies a boost! :)

    Unfortunately, I found the format (on brown background) very problematic. So I copied it to my word processor and found it to be much easier to read.

    Best to All, Wayne

    Gosh Koan, isn't that setting the bar awfully high? :)

    I thought I'd plug Peggy's blog posts on XMRV if anyone missed them.
