I can't remember all articles that have gone by so don't recall if there have been some bad press from Huffpost but I think in general they have been a friend to the ME community. See article here: http://goo.gl/RrNUl9 Article title: The Faces of ME: Missing 7 years of my life Quote from the article: Generally, when I talk to people about Lilan and ME/CFS, they want to change the subject. I get it. It’s taken me an entire year to write this article – and it’s not just because it’s difficult to connect with Lilan due to her illness or because I’ve had other projects. There is another reason. Researching this disease is difficult. I read about a patient’s suffering, watch a documentary, or scan a research article, and I have to step away. I feel overwhelmingly sad. And worried. I start to worry that every little ache, pain, or bout of fatigue is a sign that I, too, will stumble into a darkened room, never to reemerge. While that may seem ridiculous, I know the truth: No one is immune. As Lilan recently wrote on her Tumblr page (after more than a year’s absence): I did not know, so many years ago, what it means to watch the pieces of yourself get shaved away, the so-you-you-always-took-them-for-granted pieces, the closer-and-closer-to-the-core-pieces. The loss is immeasurable. And I am afraid.
