I am 38 years old, was born and grown up in Russia, Siberia ( winter it is VERY cold there), now living in Germany. Perhaps I was infected with herpes viruses as a small child. From my 13th year I suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), which is most probably caused by herpes viruses № 4 (Epstein-Barr), №5 (Cytomegalovirus), №6 and number 7. I have been researching this issue for quite a long time, was unsuccessfully treated by some medical professors in Russia, and came to conclusion, that the only thing could help me is a new ”anti herpes drug”, so my future thoroughly depends on the scientist, who are developing this sort of drugs, and pharmacy companies, who organize and finance this processes. To create a new drug, pharmaceutical companies have to invest lots of money in research and then into production. Doing this will bring profit only if there is a large market of potential customers. Lots of people in the world suffer from fatigue, some of them surely because of the herpes virus group. The main part of people with CFS in the world do not know the true cause of their illness. Interests of us (people suffering from herpes), and interests of pharmacy companies are the same at this matter. The sooner lots of potential patients claim about their interests - the faster a new drug will be created. If we help companies create a large market of consumers - we help ourselves. In most European countries and in north America it is no matter how rich the patient is, all the citizens have medical insurance that will pay for medications (so is in Germany). I do not know exactly what I can do to achieve this goal, because I am alone with my problem. But I'm a creative person, very much motivated, well educated and I don't want to give up. If there are people who also suffer from herpes and ready to struggle with it - let us come together and think - what we can do, let's try to make our contribution to the victory over the virus, that terror so many people in the world. P.S. I am very much impressed how big and informative phoenixrising community is. I bag pardon for my bad English, would appreciate if someone suggests how to correct my message and make it more understandable.
