Review: 'Through the Shadowlands’ describes Julie Rehmeyer's ME/CFS Odyssey
I should note at the outset that this review is based on an audio version of the galleys and the epilogue from the finished work. Julie Rehmeyer sent me the final version as a PDF, but for some reason my text to voice software (Kurzweil) had issues with it. I understand that it is...

    Nicola was buried on Saturday, February 3 in the closest family and friends in her hometown in the Allgäu. We would like to thank all those who supported and accompanied Nicola on her last journey.

    Pray, laugh, think of me.

    Pray for me, so that my name will be spoken in the house, as it always was,

    without any particular emphasis, without the trace of a shadow.

    Life's meaning is what it has always been.

    The string is not cut through.

    Why should not I be in your thoughts anymore,

    just because I'm no longer in your field of vision?

    I'm not far away, just on the other side of the road.

    (after Charles Péguy)

    This is a quote we can run with when advocating and raising awareness.

    Thank you, Nicola!

    We are so very sad to lose yet another of our community.

    So terrible for her loved ones!

    She must be placed on our memorial page.

    Thank you for posting. Thank you. Rest In Peace dear Nicola, far away from pain and torment.

    This is all horrific. Several times a week we hear if another young person passing due to this scourge. Where are the powers that be? Do they not hear this?

    I just read Nicola's poetry; it's wonderful. I also read her final note. I am very moved by her words but terribly unsettled about what is happening to all these young people.

    Another life, so incredibly sad. Angered what this insidious illness does, and that Drs. turn away from it.

    Just saw the news. This is so sad. A great loss for the community, especially in Germany.

    When reading her story, one question came to my mind, and I hope it's not inappropriate to ask: Does anyone know what the cause of death was or was it CFS/ME? I always thought CFS/ME could never be deadly, especially at a young age and her medical history doesn't mention any disease other than CFS/ME.

    Its my understanding that cfids itself isnt terminal. However the complications it creates can be. Its a touchy subject when one reads this partucular forum. Its like on one hand you want to know, and on the other you dont
