The Real ME: A Stock Photography Resource for the Media
We’ve all seen them in the news stories about ME/CFS: the guy in a suit at the office, yawning; the beautiful woman sitting at her desk with her immaculate make-up and elegantly coiffed hair, hand to her head and looking slightly pained.

    I'm overjoyed for Jessica as well as a backer of Jen Brea's film, these two young ladies are treasures to human beings!

    We can only hope and work together to see more of this good stories.

    Let's remember we climb the mountain one step at the time ;).

    I also think the times are ripe for a real international movement of PWME, caregivers and doctors to break the wall of bad science and misinformation and start to climb our mountain, one step at the time.

    Great news for Jessica! Do we know what treatment finally got her out of bed after 8 years?

    I can't discover 'a' reason though do read her Facebook page and see if you can. She mentions hydrotherapy, and acupuncture on her page most recently, but I don't think they are direct contributors to this development necessarily: at least Jess doesn't specifically put it down to anything.

    It may be that it has 'simply happened' after a lot of gentle persistence, or that 'the time was right'... I really don't know/it isn't clear, and no drugs are mentioned either for example; however this is one very determined young lady who is clearly much loved and supported.

    This also happened recently, and for the first time in 8 years:
