Wouldn't it depend on what caused the CFS/ME to determine if it could be "cured" or not? For example, my daughter's illness happened right after a viral illness. The doctors are telling us that they believe, with the right kind of treatments, she will get better in about a year. I know many of you have been sick for years and I am not sure how your illnesses started but I refuse to think that our doctors are wrong and they will not be able to help my daughter. In any event, I would never tell anyone that there is no cure and no hope. Maybe it's just because we have only been going through this for a relatively short time, but there are many things yet to try before we are willing to quit trying. I believe in Dr. Kogelnik and I believe he is the right person to help my daughter.
