    Mindy,

    Thanks so much. You spoke for us really, really well!

    From all of us who have lost the ability to articulate our situation effectively.

    Well spoken, Mindy. Thank you for laying it all out like you did. I loved that you maintained eye contact with her and got her to at least answer.

    Thanks for speaking for those of us who are too sick to dream of attending their conference where they keep sweeping away.

    It's a crazy world, where Mindy relies on the tip jar, and Trine Tsouderos has a staffer's salary :headache:

    Mindy, you were hard-hitting but fair. I was really impressed at how well you named the elephant in the room.

    Thanks Mindy for your superb testimony!! It was fantastic. I especially liked (and agreed with) your use of the famous quote ("have you no sense of decency....") from the Army-McCarthy hearings. It's very appropriate, considering the shameful history of CDC/NIH treatment of ME/CFS. And it's a question that needs to be repeated firmly and often, until we get the long-overdue funding and recognition and treatment that we all need.
