International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day is May 12: The World Will Know
Did you know that May 12 belongs to us? Lots of us are aware of this. We share the buzz on it amongst ourselves. We add blue ribbons to profile pictures. We raise our voices, join our hands, mount the few podiums available to us and tug at the sleeve of the rest of the world.

    "In My Humble Opinion...

    Until now I've tried to stay out of the debate, preferring to wait until more studies are done to see exactly what the XMRV discovery means to patients. But cruel and extreme comments, like those Dr. Borigini made against very sick patients who are desperate for something that will give them hope, have made me angry enough that I have to speak out."

    I commented in order to praise a positive attitude and effort in our attempt to re-educate the public about this whole mess.
    I think we need to comment on the positive as much as on the negative, or more.

    Dito, oerganix, I think the good ones deserve to be commented on even more. I'll leave a comment too! Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

    Edit: I just realized the author is a patient herself, and I had been so excited that someone from the "outside" has had enough of this, too. Nevertheless, it's a great article and we need more of these.
