Lessons from ME/CFS: Finding Meaning in the Suffering
If you're aware of my previous articles here at Phoenix Rising then it's pretty clear that I don't generally spend my time musing upon the philosophy of the disease. I find it better to spend my time reading research and trying my best to break it down to its core elements and write...

    I don't think so - we've got about 200 more than we had this morning.

    Close - we're about 70 votes behind third place. The gap between first and second has really opened up!

    Just over 200 behind now after nearly 15,000 votes - weird! The gap between 1st and 2nd has closed up again. Someone has suggested that the animal rescue and avian group might be vote-sharing and if so, they'd have to choose whether they want 1st place or 2nd-with-3rd because they don't have enough voters for both. I don't know about that, but I can see it all being decided on the final day, at this rate!

    Short version, we have to keep the pressure up, up, up!

    New article upcoming and also being included in the PR newsletter so hopefully, a further boost to support. :cat:

    Look forward to the new article Sasha!

    There is also suspicion that they may be using automated voting software as there has been some pretty odd voting activity at times and there is certainly evidence that they are voting illegally, with one person posting on their facebook page that he had voted - all 7 of him, using different email addresses. So, its possible that they will be docked votes at the end. Either way, we need to keep up the voting ourselves.

    Voters can vote for more than one group in a day. They just cannot vote more than once for a particular group in a day. The animal rescue and avian group members could each vote for both groups every day.

    We are now 235 votes behind 3rd. I hope Reach for the Rainbow agrees to join forces with us.

    I hope someone has sent a screenshot to Nature's Bounty! 7 votes a day for 22 days is 154 votes and we're lagging by about 200...

    A very good reminder that it ain't over even when it's over. There'll no doubt be a cleaning process before the winners are announced.

    Reach for the Rainbow staff and coordinators are now voting for us! They will hopefully very soon ask their members to vote for ME/FM Action Network too.

    So please remember to also vote for Reach for the Rainbow daily. Their votes could win us 3rd and ours 1st for them.

    Excellent negotiating! They've got more supporters than we have so that will be a big boost.

    I just voted for both of us and we're just 6 votes behind third now - let's get ourselves and that Rainbow winning!
