    The reporter and Ben did such a great job with this article :) .


    I just sent a thank you to that reporter. I think we need to be let it known how much we appreciate accurate reports into our illness rather then just doing complaints rather then playing the illness down (Helps to stop the misconception out there that we are a difficult, complaining community).

    Yes, Ben and Jennifer did a good job. Got the point in about CDC. That's great.

    Could be because she used to suffer from CFS, I guess she is cured?
