    Yup. When I first heard from her worker that contacted me through Ncubator, it was during a time when I was inundated by emails from people who read my Ncubator articles, people who were lonely and looking for support. I was really worn thin and had not been going for extended relationships, most contacts were a couple of emails and that was all I could do.

    But I knew this woman was more alone than any of us. No forums, no articles, no blogs, no "alternative fringe" information just the tired old crap from the CDC ... I often pictured what we did as me sitting at the mouth of a pit, talking to someone who was in a pit, trying to give them hope, encourage them to keep on, to keep them from feeling alone.

    If she'd had a computer, I probably would have given it a pass. But no virtual life? Too grim.

    THIS IS THE MEMORIAL LIST. There are many stories here and I think a study of death rates in Cfs/ME was done with some of those involved in this list.

    Jody - I will post it, thanks x

    Jody, I love the way you are able to articulate. I can envision both, sitting on the edge of the pit, calling down to someone, "Hang On, Help is Coming" and sitting in the pit, calling up "Is Anyone Out There? Does Anyone Know I'm Dying Down Here?"

    I will try to read more of your articles.

    Thanks

    Leela,

    I went to the link about Will, what a heart break. My son is 22, he has been sick fir 6 yrs with what we're calling CFS, it is similar to yet different from mine... We are lucky, my family and I because our son Jesse is getting better. Can't imagine the pain of losing him.

    Oh, Jody, I'm so sorry to hear about your son having his youth kidnapped for so long.
    So very glad to know he's getting better! Sending love-vibes to all of you :)
