I'm going to keep this short. Nancy Klimas - we could get to the bottom of ME/CFS for an incredibly small amount of money, probably about what is being spent on a single HIV study (amongst hundreds of other ongoing HIV studies). Vivian Pinn - (Not responding to Dr. Klimas directly but speaking on her comment) [Perhaps we could if we cared enough but] we're not going to give you any more money [so get used to being at the very bottom of the funding heap.] Talk of caring is cheap. I have a huge amount of respect for the researchers working hard to figure out this disease. I'm simply no longer able to hear, "blah blah blah... NO FUNDING, honest we care, blah blah blah" and then watch our so called advocates accept "blah blah blah NO FUNDING" without wanting to throw up at the insincerity and false expression of concern. ETA - I didn't mean to leave out the clinicians. The few who are helping are wonderful. Dr. Friedman's presentation was brave, necessary and long overdue. The call for more primary care physicians was just rich given the costs extracted from anyone trying to educate tomorrow's doctors. It's the so called University of Medicine & Dentistry of New Jersey that ought to be investigated.
