    Levi just posted this article from San Diego News Network on the media thread.

    Chronic fatigue patients fight a ‘lazy’ label, advocate for awareness
    But you don't look sick: San Diegans suffering from mysterious and misunderstood chronic fatigue syndrome battle daily life


    I thought it was a great article. Oh rats – another letter to write(email below)! It’s over 1,000 words I’d guess. Uses 2 patient egs – and starts with a man. Very well written and easy to read, good photos. The approach is one of starting with negative reactions that are common, then giving the info that dispels the myths + builds empathy.

    Eg
    Then Kim McCLeary is quoted numerous times and there’s a cfids link. Maybe they’re starting to step up!

    Then xmrv is mentioned in the middlish (I don’t get her cfs me distinction)



    Definitely worth the energy for a full read, I’d say.

    Final note – I like all the tags she put at the end (see below) – from what I remember of page optimizing, this article is going to get a lot of hits because she did that.

    Happy reading!

    Good article

    "When youre stuck in bed with the flu, youre stuck in bed with the flu. Its not a matter of not wanting to get up. You cant get up.

    I love this quote.....This would be a good way to describe CFS on the Oz show.
