Can You Come for a Visit? My ME/CFS Says No
My daughter and son-in-law just had a baby last week. We are thrilled. But we won't be able to see the baby or hold her any time soon. We won't be able to take over little gifts or help out with housework or babysitting.

    This is an interesting article on Francis Collins from a few months after he was appointed in 2009. Maybe we can convince him to send us some of his discretionary funds.

    Apparently Dr. Mangan has communicated that there will be no increase in funding for ME in the near future.

    I find this totally unacceptable. The NIH budget is declining 1% ($320M), but we need an increase of huge multiples, from $3M per year now to $300M - $1B per year. The budget declining 1% is no excuse.

    Can anyone explain further the info below about funding decisions?
