Me/cfs and long covid are the subjects of the cover story in the New York Times Magazine. I couldn't believe it reading it. This is a new beginning, and while yes there's the huge tragedy of, as the article says, our numbers being (at least) doubled, this HUGE national focus, on Us!, carries so much promise. While it doesn't cover everything or some of the worst manifestations of the disease, it is accurate, extremely thorough, and does us justice, in my opinion. It even speaks about some of how we've been mistreated. Dr Fauci convened a meeting saying doctors need to learn me/cfs. We are being Seen. It's like going from the neglected back of the room to on stage. Wild. This is a new beginning and may all of us, eventually, reap the benefits.
