    Hello. My daughter has had CFS/ME for over a year now. It's really tough for a teenager in high school. Lizzie find she constantly has to explain why she's been absent. So she made this video for her friends. Please share it to create more awareness. Thank you.

    What a well informed and well spoken young woman and she seems very emotionally healthy in how she's going about trying to reach out to and educate others in my opinion. I'm sorry she's going through this especially at such a young age. She does a great job explaining things in this video. So glad she has a supportive parent behind her. I wish her very well. Thanks for sharing this.

    What a beautiful young woman, inside and out. Not one word of self pity despite severe disruption to her life. I also noted how she is maturing because of her illness in that she explains how she now can talk to people on a deeper level. It is wonderful to imagine what she will do with her life when she is restored to health and I do believe that that will happen some day in the, not too distant future.

    I have CFS/ME and POTS also. My CFS/ME is great now with my supplements and the POTS is improving thank goodness. I was unable to walk at all when POTS hit. Slowly improving after getting the right supplements and testing. I hope you can find a good integrative doctor that knows about the illnesses. She did a great job with her video. I hope it helps her friends understand.

    She's been blessed with beauty and brains. She struggles on what career she wants to pursue.
    She loves fashion. She has a blog she recently started. hhttp://fateorluck.tumblr.com/
    She may want to go into psychology or medicine.
    Thanks for your kind words.
