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.

    That's great because we have a lot of people internationally who can now vote!

    Thanks for finding that out, Sasha. I've amended my opening post as well.

    Invest in ME are in second place! :)

    They only need about 110 votes to take 1st place!

    Bob, would you have any objection to the thread being renamed, 'Vote just once, from anywhere, for Invest in ME to win £2,000'?

    I think it would be good to get it into the title about the international voting and that it's not daily (argh!) voting.

    Edit: I think you must have gone for a lie down or something, Bob! I hope it's OK with you but I'm putting in the request for the name change so that we can catch people before the site quietens down for the weekend. :)

    I see it's been changed now. Thanks Sasha: Anything to get more votes!
    If you think I should re-write my opening post, then just give me some alternative text, or throw some suggestions my way.

    Invest in ME are still second, and slowly creeping towards a win. 100 votes needed for 1st place.

    I reckon we can close that gap with international voting!

    I note, in the context of our recent Nature's Bounty experience in the avian department, that we have 477 votes and the RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds) has 2! Yes, 2! :)

    I think these bigger charities haven't even noticed this contest so let's take full advantage!

    Vote! :D

    Voted! Thanks for flagging this up Bob

    Invest in ME 2nd with 478 votes. 1st place 575 votes. 3rd 396 votes.

    If international forum members vote, winning this is well within our reach!

    EDIT: oh, and as mentioned earlier, we're already sitting on £1000 by virtue of being second. So worth voting, if only to stay in position

    We've closed the gap a little bit, but not much - we're still in 2nd place with 550 votes and the leader has 636.

    We need more votes! Tell your friends! :)

    Leaps and bounds! We've closed considerably on first place today - we're now just 49 votes behind.

    Anybody not voted yet? It's really quick!

    I haven't promoted it on any other forums, because I don't use any. So if anyone can promote it on other forums, blogs, facebook, twitter, etc., then please do.

    We've got an article coming up on it here on PR, which will probably also go on Co-cure. If anyone can promote it elsewhere, great! :)

    Actually, someone else just put it out on Co-cure so that's one job we can cross off the list!

    Wow, there's been a sudden surge of votes overnight.
    We're in first place! 737 votes, and the second place has 686 votes.
    Keep those votes coming. We've got to stay in first place now!
