    Pity the CAA is not as an attractive proposition to ME advocacy as Kylie is to the average male:

    "Spinning Around"
    Spinning around
    Oooh-oh

    I'm spinning around
    Move out of my way
    I know you're feelin' me 'cuz you like it like this
    I'm breakin' it down
    I'm not the same
    I know you're feelin' me 'cuz you like it like this

    Clearin' this house out of joy that I borrowed
    From back in the day
    Threw away my old clothes
    Got myself a better wardrobe
    I got something to say

    I'm through with the past
    Ain't no point in looking back
    The future will be
    And did I forget to mention that I found a new direction
    And it leads back to me?

    I'm spinning around
    Move out of my way
    I know you're feelin' me 'cuz you like it like this
    I'm breakin' it down
    I'm not the same
    I know you're feelin' me 'cuz you like it

    Mistakes that I made givin' me the strength
    To really believe
    And no matter how I take it
    There's no way i'm gonna fake it 'cuz it's gotta be real

    I've got nothin' left to hide
    No reason left to fight
    'Cuz the truth's given me a new freedom inside
    Gettin' rid of my desire
    Do you like what you see?

    I'm spinning around
    Move out of my way
    I know you're feelin' me 'cuz you like it like this
    I'm breakin' it down
    I'm not the same
    I know you're feelin' me 'cuz you like it like this

    Ooh-oh baby, baby, baby
    You know you like it like this
    Ooh-oh baby, baby, baby
    You know you like it like this
    Ooh-oh baby, baby, baby

    I'm spinning around
    Move out of my way
    I know you're feelin' me 'cuz you like it like this
    I'm breakin' it down
    I'm not the same
    I know you're feelin' me 'cuz you like it like this

    Oh, I'm not the same
    You like it like this
    Ooh-oh

    The CAA and Bateman are presenting this whole thing as a golden opportunity to improve on the CCC. But we already have a project to do that. It is called the ICC. And the ICC is being vetted right now. There is no justification for putting control of an illness into the hands of non-experts.

    Yes, it's another divert and delay tactic, wasting more than 18 months and $1 million.

    What does the HHS have to gain by not adopting the CCC? I can't wrap my mind around it. This is what CFSAC members have recommended. This is what the experts have stated and what the majority of patients want. They could have saved a million dollars. Why? Why? Why?

    That's a good question. IF/when it is answered, it will be a whole new day in this illness. NIH and CDC have been trying to dismiss, ignore, hide or psychologize mecfs for at least 30 years now.



    This is a Primetime Live news piece on chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) from 1996. It covers the sudden U.S. outbreaks in the 1980s and the CDC's lack of response. Discussion includes Dr. Paul Cheney, Dr. Daniel Peterson, Dr. David Bell, Elaine DeFreitas, Hillary Johnson, and Osler's web.

    Dr. Peterson says the CDC is not about research but rather "damage control." He said, in 1994, the NIH "was not going to help."

    Between minutes 4:50 and 5:50
