    Irish testing

    I had emailed Judy M ages ago when I heard of the UK testing. I offered to get to the UK to be tested, she replied, amazingly. I wish the Health Minister here was as accessible.

    She said they hoped to test at some point soon in Ireland and that she would forward my email to the study co-ordinater.

    Any advice on what to do? I don't want to keep bugging her and the WPI.

    Thanks for any advice.

    Paddy

    Ps Isn't this amazing, world class scientists giving a shit about us and our own medical people laughing at us, literally.

    Hi
    I cannot access the forum - even though I've registered. I've not had my blood drawn though I'm supposed to be included in the study.
    So you could update this list or even PM me.

    I'd really appreciate it

    Thanks

    Hi Diva

    I booked in for the London/SE draw last week, was told I'd get an email about the venue, but heard nothing. I wasn't included in the draw a couple of months ago either even though I've been accepted onto the study. I've just about given up with this - I've emailed Ed Cutler several times and get no response.

    Yeah, I've talked to her to. Really a FABOLOUS person that Judy.. Just the kind of person you immediately like. Scientists have all my respect now, doctors? Not so much.. if any at all. I think they're so kind and empathic towards us because the one scientist there have a daughter with ME who works part time but wants to be able to work fulltime and do all the things she'd like, so there's a mother in pain there who grasps what we all go through and really want to help us.

    As Dr Mikovits is presenting an abstract of the UK study on Wednesday at the workshop, would any body care to speculate on the total % of XMRV MLVs positives from the UK study?

    Perhaps Dr Mikovits could post Professor Wessely a nice postcard from Maryland, USA to Kings College, London kindly filling him in! :D
