ME/CFS: A disease at war with itself

    thank you, mark, for posting this. i hope all who can will attend and offer words of love to our dear rich. i miss him so much. i realized that he was a part of my DAILY life for years and years. i would see him on any number of listservs or forums every day. and he answered my personal emails, and i tried his protocol, and he analyzed my case, and i met him once for coffee (face to face with rich!!!!), and and and. he was such a big part of my life. and i feel his loss now DAILY as well. i find myself crying over the loss of rich daily. i loved him. and i miss him. this is really hitting me hard. i hope this gathering helps us all to begin to grieve as a community. please come!

    Wish I could come but Rich's involvement in ME will surely take all other researchers ahead of their time. Thanks Rich.
