    Plus leprosy now has a proper, de-stigmatized name, Hansen's disease. While we continue to be pummelled by supposedly "accurate" CFS...

    Calling ME, chronic fatigue syndrome, is like calling Hansen's disease "unmanageable skin syndrome".

    I agree, and I think almost every family would have a "leper"!

    Perhaps, but everyone around me is healthy, and I have been ill for 7 years, so if they have not caught it by now, probably will not? Or perhaps they already have it and there immune system can fight the virus. More study needed!!

    Clinical trials now!

    Did you see the Episode on Seinfeld where Kramer goes to a Vet or something like that, because vets need to know how to treat all animals! I used to love that show!

    HAHA yeah I remember that ep, he had kennel cough the same as a dog on the street did, so they went to the vet to get the medication... He did turn a little dog like though!
