ME/CFS: A disease at war with itself
We can all agree that ME/CFS is a nasty disease, particularly in its severe form, but there are abundant nasty diseases in the world. What is unique and particularly confounding about our disease is that so much controversy surrounds it, and not only surrounds it, but invades it too.

    Thanks, Nielk! I believe that these two could be moved under the heading, " For everyone worldwide:"

    Simple instructions for e-mailing President Obama's science advisers HERE.

    I just copied and pasted the text directly and the hyperlinks just worked.

    However, if this doesn't work for you, you can recreate them one-by-one by highlighting the "HERE" text, clicking the hyperlink button (looks like a small chained link), and entering the URL that the "HERE" text should link to into the dialog.

    The URLs to use are:

    I received a response back from my Senator and posted her response below. I responded back that her response "I will keep your thoughts in mind" isn't what I was looking for. And once again pleaded our case.

    Has anyone else received responses back from their Senators?

    Thank you for contacting me regarding your concerns with efforts to change the definition of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I appreciate having the benefit of your views on this matter.
    The views of Washingtonians are very important to my work. I will keep your thoughts in mind, and I encourage you to stay in touch. If you would like to know more about my work in the Senate, please feel free to sign up for my weekly updates at
    http://murray.senate.gov/updates. Again, thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me.

    Sincerely,
    Patty Murray
    United States Senator
