1. Planning to Register?

    Please Note:

    Phoenix Rising forums are primarily for patients with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS). Caregivers, researchers, physicians, and other medical professionals are welcome to join as long as you plan to post about ME/CFS.

    If you are a researcher looking for study participants, please contact a Moderator prior to posting on the forums.

    Members of the general public who join to post about health issues that are unrelated to ME/CFS will not have their posts accepted and will be asked to find a more appropriate website to ask questions and/or post information. This keeps our forums focused on ME/CFS.

    Please make sure you read our Forum Rules and Forum Guidelines after joining and prior to posting and make sure to introduce yourself in the Introduce Yourself forum.

Despite Our Losses, People with ME/CFS Want More
We've been cheated by ME/CFS and we all know it. That's a no-brainer, if you'll pardon the cognitive pun. And loss didn't just result from the bad things that befell us. It also encompasses the good things that just ... never came. The absence of bounty. Of wholeness. Of peace.
