    Take note, in the Resources.

    Cort's blog, the forums homepage and the XMRV section of the forums are all linked at the bottom of my article.

    I checked with my editor as to whether that would be appropriate for me to use these links as resources, since I am assistant administrator here.

    I sent her links to check them out if she wanted. She emailed me to say I should go ahead and use 'em. :)

    Thanks Dainty.

    I am pretty lucky, with empowher.com.

    My editor is wonderful. Gives me guidance when I ask her for it, and listens to my suggestions and thoughts when I have any. :)

    This XMRV topic for this week was her idea. Neat, huh? :)

    I think you hit another home run with this article, Jody.

    I'm impressed at how much information you manage to fit into your 400 word limit. I know that's not easy.

    I really like the way you impressed on readers that, no matter what role XMRV plays in our disease, it is a biomarker that takes it out of the psychiatric realm.

    And you are doing a terrific job at getting the word out to people who might otherwise not know about this.

    Thank you!

    Thanks Marie,

    You're right, it's not easy getting everything into 400 words. I have to keep distilling things down to what seems like the essentials for the article. Easier to just be wordy and try to cover everything. :)

    I appreciate your encouragement. :)

    Thanks Terri,

    It's nice to get feedback. Most of the time I'm really not sure how well I've hit it.

    It's nice to be reassured. :)

    Jody,
    Excellent piece of writing....easy for anyone to understand.

    And I like the part that we are NOT psych patients! This is real, and awful.

    Keep up the great work...and thanks for using your precious energy to help all of us.
