    She stopped writing when some people wrote to her and asked her not to use CAA as the main source of patient remarks. Everyone was a bit annoyed with CAA at the time for some remarks they had made in the press (not anything Amy wrote, I don't think) which seemed to trivialize the illness. I'm not sure how to rebuild this bridge with Amy Dockser Marcus.

    Patients can be their own enemies. That's very unfortunate. We as a group have to choose our battles very wisely. Even Hillary Johnson was impressed by the new direction of CAA. Things are changing rapidly. What are the most important issues? In my opinion,
    1) research is a big one and research funding
    2) Biomarker. Who finds it does not matter much to me.
    3) Access to FDA approved drug.
    4) disease assigned to a medical specialty, not psychiatry and not a weird one either, like "environmental illness".
