    Very fascinating person ... sucks that he has ME/CFS, but I'm glad he's part of the community.

    Thanks for posting Ember! I just read something about him last week and learned that he had CFS. I kept thinking, he would be a great public relations person for our cause. He understands marketing and he has alot of contacts.

    Thanks for posting this. Howard is quite a guy, someone who did everything on his own initiative. I read "Genius of the Beast" and he's just published another book, "The God Problem".

    Harold Bloom has been promoting his new book, The God Problem, in California. Impatient with the slow progress of his tale, I indulged in this sneak preview, taken from Dan Schneider's earlier interview:
    I hope that this hasn't spoiled the ending!

    He's well now.
    But I'll wait until he tells how he did it.
    I wouldn't be able to use his method but it gets to a key issue about neuroendocrine disorders, stress, central sensitization in the brain--for CFS, MCS, and many other "conditions."

    It's fascinating.

    Wow. Thank you Ember. Part 11 is really powerful.
    "That doesn't mean you have nothing, it means [your doctor] has nothing.That means there's something wrong not with you, but with your doctor."
    He makes his points with such potency and conviction. It's beautiful.
    I'm so glad he's speaking out about these things.
