Very interesting, Sally.
I nearly died from heart failure a couple of years ago, after being ill since 1983. Looks like ME knocks a decade or so off our lives, as MS is known to do.
I'm in awe of your bog. I have been researching various infections that are misdiagnosed as ME for some 20 years now. Campaigned for many years but eventually gave up. Perhaps I should paste some of my stuff into a blog here . . . not tried that before.
