    Could I ask if anyone whom is XMRV+ with children, have you given this information to your childrens school?

    I am awaiting to be tested, along with my wife (whom doesnt have ME as far as we know), basically because Dr. M suggested to me if were both positive, there is every chance our kids are. So I dont know what to tell our children's school teachers if we are positive.

    Is this something that has already been discussed?

    I have been worrying about this as well. How would children acquire it?

    Dr. M certainly believes it is inherited. And I would feel very irresponsible not to let the school and nursery know if there's a possibility my kids are carriers.
