Review: 'Through the Shadowlands’ describes Julie Rehmeyer's ME/CFS Odyssey
I should note at the outset that this review is based on an audio version of the galleys and the epilogue from the finished work. Julie Rehmeyer sent me the final version as a PDF, but for some reason my text to voice software (Kurzweil) had issues with it. I understand that it is...

    Pathetic - Don't they think we know how to divide?

    Anybody know what the reaction in the room is - from Carol or others?

    No one. Just me making a joke about how 30 million seems kind of impressive, but then isn't when spread over 5 years.

    Assistant Sec. of HHS DeSalvo sounds committed to us! So sad she is leaving. Thank you to the ME activists who met with her!

    Argh... I don't like the idea of being obliged to add WebEx to my computer (?) to listen to this thing - it says WebEx can read and change all your data on the websites you visit. I don't know what that means but I don't like the sound of it. I wish they'd put this up on YouTube.

    I want to share how important these public comments are. This is for a couple of reasons:
    1. For those who serve on the committee, and ex officios, who know the disease, they may get frustrated with the challenges in getting some progress. I remember one committee member, when his term ended, said he often thought about quitting the committee. Yet, hearing the desperate stories of what it's like for the patients kept him on, knowing the committee is the only way to get the government's ear.
    2. There are always new people coming on as ex officios or committee members. They need to be educated. It may be a slow way to do it, but when an individual has any interest or connection to the disease, they need to be informed of what the disease is and its impact. Only patients can describe this.
