Can You Come for a Visit? My ME/CFS Says No
My daughter and son-in-law just had a baby last week. We are thrilled. But we won't be able to see the baby or hold her any time soon. We won't be able to take over little gifts or help out with housework or babysitting.

    I even laughed with them. So relatable. I wish Google would have let me leave a reply on that video but instead left screaming at the failing technology of today, I never wa allowed to leave an update on the video so those gals have no idea how wonderful I thought of their sharing. Please go and like this video if you agree and let me know if you are able to leave a comment if you do so.

    So very sad ... the woman on the left Amberlin Wu passed away in October of 2011.

    An article on her http://www.mv-voice.com/news/2010/12/02/sick-and-tired-of-chronic-fatigue-syndrome

    Dr. Franky Dolan who did this interview is also very ill. He is a tender hearted soul and I'm sure would very much like to hear your appreciation.

    He has a number of sites dealing with various issues. Perhaps he can be contacted via one of these.

    He's also on Face Book

    There were numerous tributes to Amberlin at the time. I'll list just a couple.

    I watched the interview "two gals" video and was so impressed with these two women and how they nailed it about CFS/ME!
    Then I saw the shocking posting that one of the women, Amberlin Wu, died two years ago. I've been spending time on the internet reading about her and watching more videos about and from her.
    My heart is so deeply moved.

    I did not know she died. This was the only video I found today and cant remember what brought me to this video but like you I thought they did such a great job of communicating. I wanted to let them know how much I appreciated. Sad to here she has passed.

    Thank you for sharing this video! The two of them were so spontaneous and "real" and I could relate
    to every word. I can't believe, after learning about Amberlin, that she has passed on. What a real
    loss to the community of people who knew her! She was a great person and tremendous CFS support.
    I think that if we had more ways to Sykpe with a few people it would ease the isolation for many of us.
    Is there a way to do this without divulging confidentiality with everyone? I have wanted to start a support
    group as she did, but it does take great energy!

    Here's a blog she kept.
    http://bealightcfsawareness.blogspot.ca/
    and another video she made

    a news article on her
    http://www.mv-voice.com/news/2010/12/02/sick-and-tired-of-chronic-fatigue-syndrome
    a couple of tributes
    http://www.chronicmuse.com/musings/remembering-amberlin-wu/

    a PR thread which quite likely contains more links
    http://forums.phoenixrising.me/index.php?threads/amberlin-wu-died-on-october-4-2011.12601/

    There was a lot written about her at the time. Amberlin was well liked. A lot of us slip into obscurity or pass on unnoticed but Amberlin's passing hit the community hard.

    Some ME/CFS patients meet on Second Life for voice chat, and you don't reveal anything like phone number or name. I don't know much about it but there are posts about it.

    this is really touching. i read the article about her. its so sad that shes gone now :(
    "sick and tired of being sick and tired"
    "I don't have any plans," she says in exasperation. "Everything I've ever planned in my life got cancelled."
    thats really got into me.
    @Raindrop thats a good idea. count me in :thumbsup:

    In Second Life, I believe it is like a group gathering. For Skype your contact person has to be online and available.
