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.

    I see that a few people have joined the mailing list already - thats great!

    For those without gmail, you can still join the group without a gmail account, but you will need to open a google account. You do this with your existing email address, which doesn't have to be a google one. It is a quick and painless process.
    You can sign up HERE. Then once you've got your google account, go to the group HERE and you'll be able to join the group.

    It's a one time thing, so once you've signed up, you're sorted. No more fuss, and you'll get the reminders to your current email address.

    Please vote for this ME/CFS charity. It only takes a second to help them get funding.

    Here is a short article all about it:
    http://phoenixrising.me/archives/15930

    But here is the important bit, the link to the voting page:
    http://www.sharethebounty.ca/charities.php
    Click "N" then "vote" next to the second one called "National ME/FM Action Network".
    Enter your email address, prove you're not a robot and click vote. That's all there is to it.

    You can vote once a day per. So please do it every day. It really matters.

    Thanks

    Just voted - still holding in second place, other people on our heels - every vote is going to count, especially this weekend!

    Huge opportunity to surge ahead at the weekend, when online voting generally dips!

    Reach for the Rainbow doubled their votes in the last 24 hours from the day before. I wonder what they are doing?
    We have always been excellent weekend voters, plus ME groups in Australia will be helping soon, as their contest is ending. We need to pick up the slack over the next few days.

    Even though I am sad to see our cause in third place right now, I am glad to see Reach For The Rainbow Ontario is in the running. This is a very small organization that provides all sorts of supportive services for children/adults with special needs. If it weren't for them, my daughter would have never been able to go to a residential camp for 2 weeks every summer which is and was the only kind of respite we have ever gotten. As much as I love animals, it would be nice if some of these contests were restricted to people only. In Ontario, our government has drastically cut services to sick people (especially the chronically ill), people with special needs to the point of unless you are in some kind of crisis state, you will languish on a waiting list or not get services at all. These charities often help supply services that the government used fund but have cut the funding to due to lack of resources. The money that is won in these contests is vital to keep some of them going so VOTE, VOTE, VOTE.

    Reach for the Rainbow has a huge amount of parents that have children/adult children with special needs. They are hooked into many many services that are associated with special needs -- autism, community living, developmental services, spina bifida, March of Dimes etc., summer camps, residential programs, school programs, Children's Aid Society etc. They are a small organization and I suspect the are networking very effectively right now with the many services they are associated with because they need the money to keep going. If they can't afford to run their charity, many organizations and parents will lose a vital service.
