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...

    I have often wondered what the long term difference is between people who take medications to relieve their symptoms or for other conditions, and those who have sought natural means and diet.

    If we could do a survey here, it would help people to make an educated choice, of course going on just experience.

    I also wonder how long people with ME live? Is the early 60's the cut off spot and again, how do those do who have not been taking medications as a rule. I do not hear of anyone that much older than me but mabe there is a cut off in age for people to be using the internet regularly. I do know one 70 year old but she is an exeption I think.

    So which medications are involved and why do you take them rather than seek natural remedies? I think this information could be valuable.

    Hi, Brenda; a quick question and a quick reply: do you consider Artesunate as a supplement or as a medication? same goes for Inosine, and maybe a few others too. And for what it is worth I am 76--but only got CFS at age 73--make what you can of that! Best, Chris
