    The Hebrew Israeli fibromyalgia forum I am on just noticed that the recent Hollywood movie called "A Family Man" has a plot line where the main character's son has CFS or is it "chronic fatigue"? The man has to chose between his career or his family.

    I find it odd that no one has noticed it.
    Even in the trailer "chronic fatigue" gets mentioned:

    Had not heard about this movie before, so googled a bit.
    According to IMBD the boy in the film got diagnosed with cancer..
    But my oh my how wonderful it would be with a movie like this featuring ME! One day.. :woot:

    From IMBD:
    As the boss of a Chicago-based headhunter, Dane Jensen , who works at the Blackrock Recruiting agency arranging jobs for engineers, prepares to retire, Jensen vies to achieve his longtime goal of taking over the company going head-to-head with his ambitious rival, Lynn Vogel . However, Dane's 10-year-old son, Ryan , is suddenly diagnosed with cancer and his professional priorities at work and personal priorities at home begin to clash with one another.

    wow amazing. I cant believe they actually mentioned CFS in a major motion picture.

    the doctor did say the son has chronic fatigue and maybe later, cancer?

    Ha! I'm sure any ME movie would have the main character defeated until s/he meets the mystic pace crew and cue the Eye of the Tiger music battles using GET like Rocky and overcomes his/her demons with hard graft. And gets the girl/guy.
