    I thought that was a very good article. I think we've all had those moments when we have to decide whether or not to use the dreaded "chronic fatigue syndrome" name. And I bet we've all seen that look when someone --especially a doctor-- disengages from us when we do.

    I think the people who are trying to fight the stigma by publicly saying "I have this" are heroes. It shouldn't have to take courage, but it does.

    Yes, Toni describes the stigma of having this illness very well. I'm sure we have all encountered similar situations
