    Thanks for being a bringer of good news.:hug:

    Good to see that such a prestigious paper as the WSJ has started to take an interest in CFS. No doubt theres a lot more of their readership involved in stressful jobs, which can be the precurser to CFS, especially with all the financial turmoil in the markets these days and the threat of job losses.

    If the Banksters start going down with CFS related diseases, they have the clout and the personal finance to start 'kick starting' the clinical trials and other research in the pipeline we are all waiting (im)patientlly for.

    Interesting article. I too am glad that ME is getting more press. I thought that the Front Page WSJ article was quite inaccurate portraying patients as trying to speed up science and bother scientists. Otherwise, Ms. Marcus' writing is very good. Unfortunately the bad article is the one most people have read since it was on the front page of the weekend edition.
