    You know what

    is so ridiculous. My Dogs Vet told me the Lyme test for dogs is 1almost 100% sensitive while the test for us is not nearly as good. Sometimes our pets get better medical care than we do.

    What about we would request to pass the dog version? It would not work, of course. But, I like the thought of it. =-)

    Dr. Komaroff's lecture had a slide with some known precursor infections which can lead to CFS and one was Parvovirus. Dogs also get this. Don't know if this would be the same variety or not. He didn't discuss it, but I noticed it on his slide.

    The general theme to my mind is that we all share One Life. Biologically we don't have cast iron boundaries between different species, forms of life or individuals--

    And with the XMRV possibility, it does confirm that!
